Chiron is derived from Astrology charts and is symbolized by the "wounded healer". It represents our deepest wound, and our efforts to heal that wound. Chiron was named after the centaur in Greek mythology who was a healer and teacher who, ironically, could not heal himself.
Chiron, in our map of the universe, points to where we have healing powers as the result of our own deep spiritual wounds. We may over-compensate in these areas of life. Chiron, as a wounded healer, first must face issues of low self-worth and feelings of inadequacy and show you how to rise above these issues. Because the wound goes deep, and we may work hard to overcome the wound, healing powers need to be potent.
The mission of Infinite Recovery is to provide world-class treatment while honoring the dignity, worth, and uniqueness of all people recovering from the devastation of addiction. Those with experience in addiction know it is a maddening disease. While addiction is not a moral failure, it destroys our values and snares us in a cycle of selfishness and deceit. Yet those trapped in addiction often have underlying wounds that have never healed and experience a tremendous amount of shame and isolation.

Discovery House offers a long term residential recovery opportunity. Our goal is to comfortably and safely guide you through your recovery. Since recovery is not a one size fits all process, discovery house has developed unique relationships with various treatment providers in order to provide the best possible treatment options.
We assess all residents for the need for ongoing treatment services and refer them to counseling and/or outpatient treatment services in the community. There are many options, please call an intake coordinator to see if we can help you find your path to recovery.
Tai Chi and yoga used at Discovery House to support drug rehabilitation because it offers you another method of getting in touch with your inner, true self. The end result produced by Tai Chi and yoga is a mental and physical calmness, generated ina a completely natural way. They also help keep emotions more in balance, reducing the need to succumb to unhealthy coping techniques such as addiction. The ability to handle stress improves as does the sense of feeling more centered and grounded in order to handle life’s challenges.
A combination of exercise and spa heat therapy in conjunction with safe vitamin and mineral supplements help our clients reduce cravings for drugs and alcohol and return to feeling calm, clear and centered.
Supervised medically prescribed opiate taper program designed to reduce the withdrawal effects of abruptly stopping drug use. Certain prescription medications and alcohol may require inpatient detoxification during this phase.
Discovery House is a recovery residence for those participating in drug treatment or who have recently graduated from treatment and are entering back into the work force.
We provide specific services that can complement ongoing drug treatment and prepare the client for the eventual return to life. Our clients learn to live life again by participating in group recreational activities and their own day to day life functions such as shopping and cooking. They learn to help each other and to receive help in return – all as part of the therapeutic community.
Communication is necessary for full recovery and is vital for life success. Often times we find that addiction began with the inability to communicate. Unable to address life problems with communication, the individual attempted to solve these problems by numbing themselves with drugs or alcohol. Communication can solve almost anything in life. We encourage our clients to communicate freely about their successes, worries or problems. They learn that conflicts with family members, staff or other clients are addressed through communication.
The Providence Women’s Center for Recovery, located 45 minutes north of Atlanta, Georgia, was created to fill the huge unmet void of affordable Christian drug and alcohol rehab services for women only. Our alternative to traditional drug treatment is an outreach of Providence Ministries, Inc. of Dalton Georgia which subsidizes nearly half of the actual cost of their comprehensive 90 day addiction care.
What sets the center apart from drug rehabs is that we place Christ at the forefront of everything we do.. And because we are a Christian non-profit organization, we are driven by a high calling to help a sick and hurting world, and therefore offer our services at a cost most people can afford, 90 days for $4,900.
Our model of recovery services is based on two separate but related concepts which put simply, can be surmised as spiritual treatment withclinical methods. We first open the door to long term recovery by helping program participants establish a living and growing relationship with Jesus Christ, whom we know to be the ultimate authority of healing and redemption. As this relationship matures, a spiritual renewal and evolutionoccurs which frees our women to better receive the benefits of the clinical side of our addiction services.
Our “clinical” approach to addiction is designed to be practical and sustainable. We place a significant amount of time and energy addressing the special types of traumas and self-defeating behaviors that women seem to experience more than their male counterparts, such as guilt and self-condemnation. Through individualized counseling, peer support groups,relapse prevention training, trauma recovery exercises, and 12 step work, we achieve an effective balance of “traditional” treatment methods with “spiritual” related ones which combined produce life altering results.

Narcotic replacement therapy is one of the most effective forms of treatment for opiate dependence. Each patient is treated individually and the length of treatment varies from person to person. A patient may remain in treatment for as long as clinically indicated provided that he or she is making positive life changes. At any time, a patient may request to undergo medically supervised withdrawal. Patients are all encouraged to begin medically supervised withdrawal at some point in their course of treatment.
In addition to issues of dependency, many patients have other psychosocial, emotional, occupational, medical, legal, and educational needs that should be addressed in order for treatment to be effective. HealthQwest staff is well equipped to address co-occurring issues. HealthQwest's philosophy is to provide the necessary resources and referrals to stabilize and restore positive functioning for each patient on an individualized basis.

This allows them to focus upon healing their wounds and creating long lasting recovery.
