The St. Louis Peniel Residential Drug And Alcohol Treatment Center
Part of the vision of South County Christian Counseling Center is to have a residential drug and alcohol treatment center. We believe that all addictions are completely reversible. That vision is being fulfilled this year in the South County area of St. Louis, MO. The treatment center is being modeled after Peniel Drug and Alcohol Residential Treatment Center in Johnstown, PA, under the direction of Dr. Marion Spellman, who is the president and founder.
Peniel is a Level III medically monitored intensive inpatient treatment facility that is formally described as an organized service conducted by addiction professionals. Our multi-disciplinary team provides a carefully planned treatment regimen including, but not limited to, individualized action plans and twenty-four hour medically monitored care under the specific direction of physicians and registered nurses. This therapeutic model includes client evaluation, observation and monitoring in a professional Christian setting.
At Peniel there is an atmosphere of caring, professionalism, and trust created by the dedicated staff. The goal for the program is to serve with excellence and integrity. The knowledge that each person can be “whole” is Peniel’s motivating force. Biblical principles are incorporated with practical application and are modeled by counselors and other staff members on a daily basis, which demonstrates to the resident the absolute reality of freedom attainable through a drug-free life.
Peniel is a thirteen-month residential program with a six-month after-care program. We believe that our long-term program provides the client an opportunity to live a drug-free lifestyle in a supportive setting. Individualized treatment plans explore causal factors such as unresolved conflict, abuses, failures, and insecurities.
