The Higher Ground Substance Abuse Program of Praise Assembly uniquely offers Biblically based treatment for substance abuse in a clinical outpatient setting. Services are conducted by qualified substance abuse counselors and include:

  • Substance Abuse Assessments
  • Individual Counseling
  • Educational Classes. Topics are all biblically supported and include:
    • Basic Addiction Education
    • Relapse Prevention
    • Communication Skills
    • Relationships
    • Guilt and Shame
  • Group Therapy
  • Drug Testing

Outpatient Fees: $15 per week which included all services: individual sessions, groups, classes, Recovery Kids, and drug tests.  (No transportation provided.) $25 per week provides the same services as above, including transportation.

The Recovery Kids Program is for children of all ages whose parents are in the drug recovery process.  While parents are in classes, children are provided a fun and loving environment where they learn about healthy families, feelings, and lifestyles through the Scriptures and other necessary tools.

The Transportation Program is a special service to our clients who have no transportation or have lost driving privileges. Redemption Ministries provides transportation to and from treatment, recovery supports and church services.  Simple call (417) 840-3852 at least 2 hours in advance to make arrangements.

Our Recovery Support Program is open to anyone seeking support in recovery. The goal of this program is to provide daily recovery supports in a positive, fun, and loving atmosphere.

  • Every Monday evening at 7:00 we host a Christ-centered 12-step meeting (open to addicts only).
  • Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday evenings we meet from 6:00 to 8:00 for classes called God, Addiction, and The Bible (A.K.A. GAB). Anyone is invited to attend the GAB classes. These are Bible studies focusing who God is, who we are, and how we can be empowered to become everything that God has created us to be.
  • We also have a Recovery Prayer Meeting on Wednesday evenings immediately following the Pastor's study (about 7:45 in the prayer room). Come join us as we pray for each other, for our church, for God to touch the addicts of Springfield, and for those who have gone astray.
  • Join us in church services and become part of a family that will love you just as you are and help and encourage you to become all that God wants you to be. 
  • Free transportation and Recovery Kids is available for all GAB classes and regular scheduled church services at Praise.

Our Jail Ministry Team brings the Good News to men in the Greene County Jail every Wednesday at 1:30 and the women every other Wednesday at 2:30. Services are one hour long in the chapel.

Praise Assembly is contracted with the Missouri Department of Mental Health Division of Alcohol and Drug Abuse as an Access to Recovery faith-based service provider.  All staff are qualified and meet DMH requirements for the ATR program.  Application for certification as a clinical outpatient program is in progress.
