In this phase, LARC personnel conduct a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation. The LARC familiarizes the new resident with the program philosophy, house rules, program terminology and the first three principles of Celebrate Recovery program. Acceptance and understanding of the disease of addiction is very important to learn skills necessary to effectively cope with life’s challenges, also includes identifying clients' assets, strengths, and resources so these can be applied in support of the clients' recovery. Spirituality, Self-worth and Self- responsibility is the foundation of Personal Recovery Program that LARC would like to highlight. Believing God’s everything is possible; happiness, healing and lifelong recovery process.
Clients are provided with holistic treatment approach and encouraged to accept God and ask for His help to recover and improve the quality of their lives.
