Testimonial Section

“This is a residential program of approximately 250 clients. It is a one-year program. Their success ratio is astounding. I personally am not aware of any other program in the United States that can claim a better success rate.”

 

– Jay Scribner, Former President of the Missouri Baptist Convention

“In forty plus years of ministry I have had association with many recovery and addiction assistance groups. Most have been excellent, but none have come up to the level I have seen and experienced in CORE. I am convinced the process CORE uses is the most productive that I have encountered.”

 

– Reverend John M. Edie, Formerly of Second Baptist Church of Springfield, Missouri

My name is Jay, my mother was a second grade school teacher and my father was in the grocery store business and he was also a cattle farmer. I never had to worry about where I was going to sleep or what I was going to eat in the house I grew up in. I had two very loving parents.
From the time I can remember, I would sneak drinks from my father and drink them when he was not around. By the time I was eleven, I started smoking weed. By thirteen, I was shooting meth amphetamine. (more…)

My name is Mike Banks and I am an addict. I was brought up in an upper middle class family. I had good grades in school and was very loved by both of my parents. By the time I was a freshman in high school, I started drinking beer and smoking marijuana every weekend. I thought this was normal as did all my friends and we never got into any trouble. (more…)

My name is Dinah Rich and I am 47 years old. I have 6 children and one daughter who is deceased. I started using alcohol and drugs when I was 11 years old. My upbringing was abusive and by the age of 17 I was a full-fledged addict.

I dropped out of school and started to move around the country. I tried to change my life by moving, but, when my daughter died, I continued to make bad choices. (more…)
