Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away behold; the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
Pivot’s mission is to treat drug and alcohol addiction as a spiritual problem and return the men to their families usefully whole.

The first stage in Pivot’s Christian transformation process is accepting the loving hand of Christ. We believe that a fellowship of men, having been freed from the bondage of addiction by completing Pivot's programs, are empowered to deliver the healing power of the gospel. Pivot is blessed to have a large community of churches, families and foundations partnering with us to help provide unconditional love and acceptance to the men in our program who seek recovery from addiction.
Our Bible curriculum is the core of Pivot's foundation, and the source of our strength and inspiration. The application of Christ’s ways and teachings to once broken and defeated souls has resulted in a true resurrection of spirit for hundreds of our graduates. Pivot men graduate our program with the security and knowledge of the Bible and become valuable members of their churches.
Learning to live in a mutually supportive residential community is the third stage in the transformation process. Living in a structured environment with a consistent schedule leads to a more manageable lifestyle. Involvement with local community organizations introduces our students to valued support groups, and to area churches.
Pivot's charge since 1970 has been: "Enter to Change. Remain to Grow. Depart to Serve." Pivot's process transforms men out the self-centered life of addiction into a God-centered life of service. Many of our men have graduated into leadership positions in their churches, their communities, and have gone on to lead others to sobriety.
