U-Turn’s goal is to teach individuals to be independent, self-supporting, and stable under the Lordship of Jesus Christ by becoming an asset to their family, church, friends, employers, schools, and society.Most enrollees come to U-Turn For Christ after hitting their life’s “bottom,” and some are ready to do whatever is necessary to have Jesus Christ restore their lives and give them peace again. We have found with men and women prepared to give up, “leaning on their own understanding,” and completely surrender themselves to the Lord’s work for eight months, their lives are never the same.Frequently Asked Questions
How our addiction recovery program works
Most enrollees come to U-Turn For Christ after hitting their life’s “bottom,” and some are ready to do whatever is necessary to have Jesus Christ restore their lives and give them peace again.

In Phase One of our drug and alcohol rehab program (we can help with other forms of addiction as well), participants spend a minimum of two months at one of our U-Turn For Christ ranch locations. Participants stay in military-style quarters, one large room filled with bunks. This type of housing promotes healthy fellowship. “As iron sharpens iron, so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend” (Proverbs 27:17). Participants participate in morning devotions, daily chores, volunteer community service, evening Bible study, and nightly personal devotion time throughout the day.LEARN MORE
Phase Two of our program is six months long and comes with two possible paths to travel. Some return to work, pay a monthly donation and attend church with first phase participants in the evening. Others are chosen to commit six months of service to the Lord and are provided for by the ministry. This last choice comes with considerable sacrifice. Servants of Christ can be called on at all times to serve in many different ways. The six-month period does not have to be the end. Many who return to work will stay a year or more, choosing a higher level of accountability and fellowship for their lives. Many who have stayed to serve in ministry now do at other U-Turn for Christ facilities in the United States and worldwide.ENROLL TODAY!

“ U-Turn stresses that freedom over drugs and alcohol comes through one source, and that’s Jesus Christ.” – Pastor John Randall
I grew up in San Diego, blessed to have a family that believes in Christ. I grew up in the church. I knew God, but I have never had a deep and meaningful relationship with the Lord like I do now due to coming to Uturn for Christ.
Pastor Mike Knox
Growing up in a good home, with a loving family I have no one to blame for the kind of life I lived before meeting the Lord. My excuse was I was a defiant individual and all I ultimately cared about was my own wants
As far back as I can remember, I’ve felt alone. I have abused every drug under the sun and felt like a piece of a puzzle in street gangs and prison; after decades in the streets I believed that was to be my destiny.
