Hello;my name is Matthew Cooper I am the founder
of Recovery Way Ministries, Inc. est. March 1, 2010 and have a proven
(Adj.1.proven - established beyond doubt;) system of recovery (Last 12 months
only 4 relapses on premises out of 75 men - updated March 18, 2014). I am
living proof of this as my 26 plus years of abstaining from drugs and alcohol
would confirm. Truly Grace from God that most people are not
blessed with. That Grace to never forget the "living hell".
Why Are We Different:
"This is a program not just sober living or Christian center. Where to go, what to do, and how to do it (pay rent, clean house, seek recovery, know God) is completely taken out of the picture. We have taken all the pragmatic life skills that we were taught by our 12 step recovery peers and left the rest behind. So finally there is a place you can go that has the answers you need to stop the cycle of negative consequences brought on by your using, worshiping self and turning your back on God".
The Recovery Way Difference:
Here in Florida at Recovery Way we pride ourselves in being different and we are. We interview every man before accepting them into our program which means 100% of the men want to be here 100% of the time. What we require at time of interview is sincere agreement that "everything you know about living is killing you and are ready to leave your thinking at the door having and open mind that someone knows something that you do not and are ready to follow directions". As Jimmy K states "you cannot graft a new idea on a closed mind". If only Jimmy recognized only God can do this not man. We firmly believe that the addict and alcoholic (man) cannot think their way into good living.
At Recovery Way Florida we leave nothing to chance. "What to do, where and how to do it" are completely taken out of the picture. We have no expectation that the man coming to Recovery Way has previous knowledge of how things are supposed to work. With this in mind we never ridicule or reprimand for lack of knowledge instead our philosophy is a simple and proven one. We (me, my senior men and employees) will love you and have 100% expectation that the new man does not know how to do the things he needs to do to live without using. With that said we also have 100% expectation that the man coming to Recovery Way have 100% willingness for us to show them and is why we interview and invite men to come to us based on willingness not on need. If these men that are invited into the program prove by their action they do not want this way of life we will remove them but we will never punish, ridicule, demean or take away privileges and they will be placed into another program.
Here at Recovery Way we have found that willingness, Grace (God giving you the ability to do what was impossible before) is the KEY and with willingness comes action. We provide the perfect platform for the addict and alcoholic to hit the ground running. To re acclimate into society without the additional stresses brought on by "where to go, what to do, and how to do it". With this in mind we provide nothing but the best possible sober living conditions to stop the worship of all temporal things believing they will satisfy (using anything on the outside to make me feel good on the inside) and depend on God who truly satisfies and bears good fruit. Gal 5:22-24 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law. Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.

We are NOT a 501.c.3 Christian-Charitable organization. We do not hold fund raisers or charity drives or solicit dollars though you are free to make a donation in dollars or real-estate property with a grateful heart as we are praying and saving to have a compound one day to accommodate 100 men to lead to the lord.
