How Women Can Break the Bondage of Addiction

(New Life Home/Facebook)

In November, Manchester, New Hampshire-based New Life Home will celebrate 40 years of providing long-term, faith-based recovery programming for women and their children with an event featuring words from our founder, Pastor George Rosado, as well as Pastor Jim Cymbala from The Brooklyn Tabernacle Church, a longtime partner of the home.

A Different Approach

A voluntary, residential treatment facility like few others and one of the oldest of its kind, since 1977 New Life has been providing long-term (18-24 months vs. the typical two- to three- month) recovery programs showing women how to love themselves and build productive lives. The program also prepares women for higher education and vocational training. A foundational and fundamental principle setting New Life Home apart from other recovery ministries is their emphasis on the holistic recovery of the family.

This is accentuated through the inclusion of children from newborn through 12 years old living on site with their mothers.

Powerful Stories

After overcoming a difficult childhood and his own issues with recovery, Pastor George Rosado and his wife, Grace, made a conscious decision to give back by founding New Life Home. The couple has devoted their lives to developing and maintaining this unique recovery program, acclaimed by church leadership across the Northeast as well as community and government leaders in the state of New Hampshire.

Recovery Is a Challenging Process

When women enter New Life Home, together we confront the past situations that brought them into the program, supporting a reflective process that encourages women to reevaluate their lives, put them in perspective and look to the future with optimism and faith. By focusing on their current skill set and growth opportunities, they move past old routines into a space where they can live emotionally and spiritually healthy lives.

With a success rate over the national average for long-term programs, New Life's graduates include women like "Kimmy," who went from years of using meth and a cycle of abusive relationships to a grounded recovery that includes a loving, structured home for her son and daughter.

Recovery Based in Faith

Many factors make New Life Home unique, including our outspoken commitment to incorporating the teachings of the gospel into our programming, which we believe is essential to long-term recovery. Because of our faith-based approach, New Life Home receives no government funding, instead relying on support from churches, local businesses, foundations and a growing, committed group of individual donors. New Life Home is also offered without cost to the residents of the program and their families. The organization believes that a mother's ability to heal and grow with her children should far outweigh her ability to pay for services.
