“The program at Changing Lives is nothing short of a miracle for these women, providing all the resources needed to heal old traumas, learn how to live without addiction and obtain the necessary skills to be fully self-sufficient.” Dr. Cara Lan, SCNM faculty, Changing Lives physician
Changing Lives is a recovery program offering long-term, comprehensive services to women and children. The facility can house and provide for approximately 200 individuals. The 12 to 18-month program provides a stable, nurturing environment where women work through addiction and abuse issues. They receive life skills education and counseling, which helps them become self-sufficient by leading to career assessment and job placement.
SCNM student clinicians focus on basic supplementation, acupuncture, physical medicine, and homeopathy as they help patients recovering from addiction, pain, anxiety and insomnia.
Located in central Phoenix, Changing Lives is a program of Phoenix Rescue Mission, an organization that offers Christ-centered services for men, women and children who are struggling with homelessness, drug addiction and trauma.
