Vision Statement

Our vision at R.E.A.L. Recovery is for the recovering addict to incorporate their recovery into living their life. Our view is that recovery is not something we do or did, but it’s the way we live. Our goal is for each and every member in our housing to live a fulfilling life in recovery, while becoming responsible, productive members of society. Through peer to peer recovery, and an introduction to 12 step fellowships, we help our members construct their lives on a solid foundation of recovery that can carry them through their daily lives.

We are serving Men and Women in the Henrico and Richmond, Virginia area.

Kingdom Life Ministry

Level 2 House

KLM helps people transform their defining moments of life through seeing addicted lives changed one day at a time through Biblically based transformation. In the Richmond City Jail, KLM operates in collaboration with Sheriff C.T. Woody and the Belief Program. The recovery message is delivered in the Jail from those who are successful in their recovery and helps those who are suffering from the disease of addiction. The program operates on a tier that houses approximately 80 men, at no cost to tax payers, and provides biblical based sessions, motivational discussions delivered by program staff in recovery, and development of transition plans for those who are nearing release. Upon release, if the men choose to remain a part of the program, they are provided with housing, peer support, access to employment, transportation, friends and a loving/caring recovery community.

While KLM works primarily with men released from the Richmond City Jail, we will consider individuals from other jails, drug courts, and self-referrals.
