  • Holistic Therapy

    Facilities that offer “holistic therapy” see and treat patients in the context of their entire lives and health status. They treat the “whole person,” not just the addiction.
  • Residential Treatment

    Residential treatment programs provide housing (food and meals) in addition to treatment for substance abuse. Some facilities offer only short-term residential treatment, some offer only long-term treatment and others offer both, ranging from a few days to many months, based on patient needs.

  • Gerry Brown
    Gerry BrownFounder and President
    Pastor Gerry Brown comes from a family of fifteen brothers and sisters, and is therefore family oriented. After many years of struggling with the sin of addiction, finding himself in divorce court with a Judge warning him that he was about to ruin his life, he agreed to do whatever his lovely wife Peggy wanted for him to get his family back. Peggy’s one requirement was for Gerry to attend church with her. Gerry agreed, not realizing God would get a hold of his heart and change his life forever. That was over twenty years ago. Today he is the Senior Pastor of Calvary Chapel Romoland and also the founder and President of U-Turn For Christ. His unique shoot-from-the-hip style of teaching gets right to the heart of the matter, and the meat of the Word. His powerfully unique style of delivering God’s Word will both challenge and encourage you to new levels of maturity in your walk with Jesus, as we draw from God’s design for living, and discover new insights to God’s “Truth and Love in Action”.
  • Mario Rocha
    Mario RochaAssociate Pastor
    I came to U-Turn For Christ in July of 1995, thinking I was going to stay for two months, get sober, and move on to whatever God had for me next. I didn’t know what God had for me next was to serve in this ministry, and I truly count it a privilege. In November of ’99 I was ordained a Pastor and I now serve as the Associate Pastor to Pastor Gerry Brown. Through the years I’ve witnessed God’s miraculous work in restoring lives, marriages, and families; including my own. I’ve had the honor of helping set up ministries for U-Turn For Christ in Tennessee, Kenya, and Thailand, before I was married. In 2008, I met my beautiful wife, Evelyn, and we wed April of the following year. She also serves, assisting Peggy Brown with Women’s Ministry. My hope and vision for this ministry is, if the Lord tarries, that my Pastor’s vision will be fulfilled in having a U-Turn For Christ in every State, discipling and restoring those who are trapped in the sin of addiction.

Both my husband and my self went to U Turn, separated in camp\'s. I remember it being so hard at first Once I gave in any accepted that I did need help, the labor and obedience I learned is the only way. I stayed and graduated with my husband Jossie was the house manager and I thank her for her strictness on me. Ps I won the purple t shirt. Just pray for obedience and humidity, it\'s a great blessed place.

I give I turn for Christ a five star rating because it was through this program that God worked in my life to save me from death from such a depression that would’ve killed me if I hadn’t been there. I came from a mental hospital to U-Turn for Christ in a state of such fear and depression that I was unable to function in the world. I couldn’t work I couldn’t be alone. the devil had destroyed everything in my life I lost everything. I lost my home I lost my family I lost my mind but through their program and putting my trust in Jesus Christ for salvation and putting my trust in his word and clinging to his word and believing in his word God turned my life around he restored my life he restored my mind he gave me back everything that I lost plus more. I’m not saying that this was an easy thing to do it wasn’t. I spent two years at U-Turn for Christ but he did a miracle there and the reason he did was because I was surrendered to him I surrendered my life to him gave him everything this is when he’s able to work in your heart and your life and not until then
