Mission Missouri is glad you are considering entrance into The Esther House, our transitional house for women with substance use disorders who desire to recover. Our faith-based Christ-centered staff members are experienced, professional, and dedicated. Please consider carefully whether or not you will be a good candidate for the Esther House. We have a structured program that works well for those who fully engage with the process. “Trust the process and trust the leaders!”
Components of the Mission Missouri Sisters Rising Recovery Program include but are not limited to:
Peer Coaching and Recovery Planning
Individual and Group Counseling
Life Skills Individual Assessment and Planning
Education Groups (Financial Mgt., Anger Mgt., Parenting) and Employment Skills Training
Recovery Support Groups
Faith-based Support and Mentoring (we utilize the Life Recovery Bible)
Connection to a faith community is extremely important to participate in this program. Attendance to church is mandatory. There is a loving community at The Riverbend Pentecostals in New Madrid that have welcomed our ladies in the Sisters Rising Recovery Program. In addition, you are strongly encouraged to identify a sponsor. We will provide you with connections to outside recovery meetings and supports.
Being a resident at Mission Missouri means you will be part of a community which includes responsibilities such as daily chores. We work closely with Probation and Parole, with Division of Family Services, with family members, and with employers to facilitate your success. Applications and releases from referral sources must be filled out completely and properly witnessed. Any falsification of information on your application will be grounds for immediate discharge. Do not hesitate to call if you have further questions. It is our heartfelt desire to see you succeed in life and in your recovery.
Acceptance into the Sisters Rising Recovery Program will not be based on race, color, citizen status, religion, creed, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, physical or mental disability, marital status, veteran status and political affiliations, prescribed medications, or any other characteristic protected by law. History will not be deterrent unless it would violate probation protocols.
