Celebrate A New Life Marks Second Anniversary As Christian Drug Treatment Center

Celebrate A New Life Marks Second Anniversary As Christian Drug Treatment Center











“Help begins with the first phone call,” Celebrate a New Life is available Toll-Free 24/7

San Juan Capistrano, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 08, 2011

This month marks an important milestone for Celebrate A New Life. It was March 2009 when Bobby Nicholl welcomed the first patient to Celebrate A New Life’s Christian residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Celebrate a New Life was conceived with encouragement from pastors, Christian psychologists, probation officer and judges. As Mr. Nicholl says: “There were plenty of charity Christian programs, such as the rescue missions and Salvation Army for low income and the homeless, but just very few Christian Drug Rehab programs were available with high-quality comfortable amenities. This inspiration gave me the confidence to design Celebrate A New Life which culminates a Biblical Christ centered approach to healing, restoration, and reconciliation to God, family, and to one’s own dignity and self-worth; in a comfortable safe ocean environment.”

Bobby Nicholl brings a wealth of knowledge to Celebrate a New Life, having worked in the recovery field for over 15 years he has drawn on his experience to design individualized and customized treatment plans to meet the specific needs, issues and circumstances for each client.

In the past two years 130 clients have completed the Christian program at Celebrate A New Life. Typically each client arrives searching for recovery, but doubtful about what lies ahead. “Watching the transformation take place right before our eyes and witnessing the sparkle of life and hope return to the client’s eyes confirms that our mission to minister the love of Jesus Christ to the least, the last and the lost is working,” reports Nicholl.

The Celebrate A New Life staff stresses that it is important to remember: “When the client recovers and gets well, sometimes the family and significant others in their lives don’t feel they have to change or work on anything; however, it’s critical to understand addiction truly is a family disease. We believe a family gets sick together and we want them to be able to get well together; therefore, we offer extensive family therapy, both for an individual family and groups.”

Celebrate A New Life welcomes inquiries about the Christian Program. Remember for you or your family member “help begins with the first phone call.”

About Celebrate A New Life: Celebrate A New Life is a Christian Residential Drug Rehab and Alcohol Treatment Program, located in the coastal communities of Orange County Southern California. As an integrated component of one of the very best treatment facilities and drug rehab programs in the United States, Celebrate A New Life culminates a Biblical Christ centered approach to healing, restoration, and reconciliation to God, family, and to one’s own dignity and self-worth. Celebrate a New Life offers 30-60-90 day programs in a comfortable safe ocean environment.

The kindness and love that I experience in Second Life far out weighs the negative drama that sometimes occurs between avies. We are people behind our artfully designed avatars. And with this community, sometimes, people have conflicts that can be overwhelming.

I don’t like to feel rage for anyone or any circumstance, so I search for beautiful places to meditate and to focus once again on the positive energy in this place.

Sometimes, I find it in music and other times I find it in a singular vision or an artist. This past week, I needed to find spiritual nourishment and Second Life did not disappoint me.

I arrived at LA 2019 City with a haphazard LM that didn’t arrive at the destination of the club. Several of us were left standing wondering what had gone wrong. I saw Billynom8 and he manged to fly up to the 2,351 meter mark. He so graciously tp’ed me to the party. That was my first contact with pure kindness. Thank you Billy!

DJ Voyager Xue was pounding the hardcore. Deep inside me, I let the music just take over to numb the negative away. I must come back to this place, the club was very cool.

Xavier donned his enormous white wings and enveloped me in his angelic protection. We had to go to Organica. One of the most spiritual musical places full of loving people in SL. DJ Qee was there and we just became lost in the beautiful sounds of psy and goa.

Montana sent us a tp to hear Joaquin Gustav, a live musician who plays flamenco guitar. Next to the ocean, Sasi’s club presents a beautiful and casual setting for Joaquin’s music. Unpretentious, his flamenco music captures your spirit and brings you to exotic places far away. We danced in each others arms on his musical notes.

But, my soul and spirit needed more. Both Xavier and I come from Catholic backgrounds. I asked him if he would go to church with me. So off we went in search of beautiful churches. I especially love stain glass windows and I am enchanted by religious art.

We found Walsingham Church with its simple interiors, St Paul and its large stained glass windows, the sweet gilt display of the blessed child at St George and the wonderous Basilica Cardinale. Basilica was stunning with stain glass, ornate alter and prayer pews for the patrons. I loved it here and we stayed for about an hour.

I felt refreshed. And I wanted to see art. Cherry had sent a tp to Galerie Francane, so I arrived ready. Colorful psy art and photographs lined the walls, but I was enchanted with the waterfall and river sculpture. Very spiritual with a reverence for nature and water. I loved it.

Evening came and Xavier and I headed for the special Sunday evening ballroom dancing at Phantom Rose Opera House. We danced among patrons enjoying several operatic selections. The music was divine. And we ended up almost being the last ones to leave.

Next stop in our ballroom attire was Bella Vida Velvet Jazz Lounge. I love this place for the world music it always plays. DJ Jen Noel plays here frequently as well as DJ Angelsmoon. Angelsmoon was spinning tonight with his special mixes of Moroccan, Indian and electronica fusion. I was truly in heaven at this point with his world music. I simply love his sound.

We ended out evening at Garden of Dreams locked in an embrace by the river. This is a very spiritual place with a reverence for all things natural. A glorious river flows through the sim with each area set aside for meditation and reflection. We have been here several times just to renew ourselves and our commitment to each other.

Second Life is truely a blessed place full of life’s hardships and rewards. I am reminded that this small world is definitely a reflection of the larger one we live in… and I appreciate the kindness and beauty here very much.
