"IF THE SON SETS YOU FREE, YOU ARE FREE INDEED." JESUS CHRIST HEALS FOR A LIFETIME!
RECOVER ONCE & BE RECOVERED FOR LIFE
If you're looking for a permanent solution rather than a temporary fix, then you've arrived at the right place here at VICTORY RETREAT ONLINE! When you attend our online program, you can expect to fully recover when you do the work and continue it going forward. No 'steps'! No disease theories! No labeling anyone an 'addict'! Just truth and healing. There IS another way. Make it YOUR way!
We work with you Online & by Phone, with 24/7 Support. After completing your program, we extend our 24/7 support to you for as long as you need us. It's nice to know that someone is there when you need someone to talk to or pray with. We feel we are the most compassionate and comprehensive faith based recovery program available. The best part is that you don't have to interrupt your life. We become part of your daily routine as we help navigate you through a successful spiritually sound healing process.
OUR MISSION is to properly redefine addiction as a spiritual problem that demands a spiritual solution . This solution is found in the promises of God as revealed throughout the pages of the Holy Bible. Recovery does come to an end that brings new life, complete healing and hope to the once brokenhearted who finally discover they were created by God for a purpose. That makes all the difference!
The 7 Basic Components of Victory Retreat Online
1) Trained & Certified by Teen Challenge USA to teach their world famous curriculum - designed for both adults and teens alike. This program is the backbone for individualized counseling, personalized coaching and extraordinary discipleship. We are very proud to be able to integrate their program with ours. (Please note: we are not a licensed Teen Challenge Facility; however, we are sanctioned by them to teach their curriculum.)
2) Specialized Christian Life Coaching
3) Sound Biblical Counseling
4) Bible Study with an emphasis on spiritual warfare and a deeper walk with the Messiah
5) Sound, Balanced & Powerful Discipleship
6) Worship & Praise
7) Paying it forward
God's power in your life is how Jesus our Messiah can and does make the difference in overcoming addiction. It's by total submission to the Word of God, and living by His ways, that addiction doesn't just end, it is annihilated. This is accomplished through salvation, immersing oneself in the Bible, living Biblically, fellowshipping, and always paying it forward.
Our goal is for you to embrace God's Power in your life and how Jesus is the 'key' to overcoming your addiction, without the stigma of thinking you have some incurable disease. When fully embraced, addiction can be a thing of the past. As you're aware, too many are enslaved, tortured and disabled from addiction, and all too many needlessly die prematurely. We don't want that to happen to you! Most actually live in constant fear of relapse. Fear is not of God, neither can God lie, so when you are healed, you stay healthy and well.
Regarding prescription drugs here in the USA, we now have a growing opioid crisis that needs to be dealt with. Opioids are responsible for killing 1 American every 8.5 minutes, which includes both kids and adults. This sobering statistic is growing. This needs to stop. No matter what your addiction is, we believe that we offer you something refreshingly new, different and filled with hope. Your life matters and you matter to us! We have your back 24/7.
We are NOT disease theorists, and you won't be doing any 'steps' here. We are evidence based. Aside from necessary medically supervised detox which takes only a few days, recovery doesn't need to be 'medical', and your life doesn't need to be spent apart from your family. The statement that addiction is a disease is NOT evidence based. It has never been proven, nor can it be. There are a lot of lies out there that you must be careful to discern. The fact remains that when you are told that you have an incurable disease, your mind becomes programmed to ongoing disability and 'relapse'. Your mind affects your body and so you believe that you can't heal and nothing changes. On the other hand, when your mind is offered hope and healing, you will heal and move forward with a productive and satisfying life, leaving addiction in your past. With the Lord in this equation, you can't lose!
With all of our research, experience and practical work, we believe it is worth giving Victory Retreat Online a chance to restore your life and make it new. You pay by a small reasonable donation based on your income, so there is no need to be concerned about high prices. Remember that addiction takes you and your loved ones hostage. Jesus wants to set you FREE. Isn't it time to invite the Great Physician, the God of all creation, into your recovery so that you can heal for life? The Bible says, "the wisdom of the world is foolishness with God".
Will you take a moment to send us an email? Your addiction won't and can't go away on it's own, and the first year of recovery is a very vulnerable time. I think you know that. You may have even tried to do it on your own and found out that you couldn't. Perhaps you are one of the many who have entered and re-entered the revolving door rehab madness. Your life just isn't life anymore and you are praying that someone would just make it better. We can help coach you through a victorious recovery.
Our extraordinary love for the Lord, our passion for our work, our expertise, our experience, our compassion and empathy for our clients, all work together to make VRM a success!
Let's face it, nothing costs as much as your drugs and/or alcohol did. Victory Retreat Online is only a tiny fraction of what you spent during your addiction. You not only bled yourself dry financially, but you risked your very life and soul. That said, consider the extreme cost of doing nothing.
The time you spend recovering at Victory Retreat Online varies. It's all based on how hard you work. You can successfully graduate in about 3 months; others may need more time. It all depends on how committed you are. You will recover at your own pace, and you won't have to worry about any financial drain. The cost of out-patient recovery programs that exist today, range from between $12,000 to $60,000 for 60 to 90 days. Most people can't afford those prices and most insurances don't cover enough to make much of a difference. Add to that the sad fact that conventional rehabs have become revolving door institutions because they base their treatment on a disease 'theory' which is not even evidence based. We firmly believe and know that addiction is a spiritual problem that demands a spiritual solution - that's our approach and that's why your chance for success is so powerfully strong.
Your tuition at Victory Retreat Online is on a sliding scale fee based on a very small portion of your total household income, and is tax deductible because we are a Federally approved and registered 501(c)3 non-profit corporation in Montana. There just is no way you can't afford this recovery program.
We even offer you a PAY AS YOU GO plan that is convenient and interest free! We allow you to pay just one month at a time if that helps.
Except for rare circumstances when you don't do the work, just work hard and graduate once. No need to keep doing recovery again and again. Jesus heals for life!
Please consider the extreme and potentially devastating cost of doing nothing about your recovery. Recovery is a road you MUST take in order to heal for a lifetime. Here at Victory Retreat Online, you recover only once to be recovered for life.

Please read our disclaimer at the bottom of this page.
Let's talk. No one is forcing you into anything. You have free will, which means you can choose the path you wish to take. Pick up your phone and call us or send us an email today telling us that you would like to take advantage of our no obligation FREE one hour consultation.
Relax, grab your smartphone and let's do recovery together!
There are many, many benefits to engaging in your recovery from addiction at home. If there weren't any benefits, we wouldn't be be wasting your time and our reputation. Your addiction is not your problem alone; it is a family problem, so you need your family's involvement. We work with you AND your family members at home. Your family members can provide you with encouragement and helps us strategize your program so that it works the best way possible for you. We work together. If you live alone, you will be giving us the name of your closest relative or friend who can provide you with the best support and proper guidance; we work with them too. If you have kids, they don't need to be missing you at home; that's too traumatic. You will be able to continue to properly parent you son(s) and/or daughter(s). We'll even work with you on how to parent more effectively and lovingly.
With the personal connection we can attain via the internet and phone, the days of 'warehousing' you in a super expensive cold rehab can be over. While there are times when a residential rehab may be necessary, especially when it is a condition of the court system; however, most of the time the best place for you is at home with loved ones. Families are happy to be a part of your recovery and you'll find that family life and marriages improve over the time you spend in recovery with us.
You will work at your own pace. There is no need to feel competitive or pressured. Even though you will be given deadlines, there will be ample time to complete your assignments. Most hand them in early. You can always request more time. It's all up to you as to the pace you want to go. The average program length is approximately 3 months, but you can do it in less time if you work at it.
We make our program affordable, but definitely not free. Our program fee for 3 months is based upon your total household income. We take a very small percentage of your gross income so that financing will present no issues. We don't make it free because we have found that those who attend free, do not take recovery seriously. They don't show up for appointments, they go back to their old ways, and they don't work or hand in assignments. When you pay for something, you take responsibility and you work your hardest at getting the most out of your money. If recovery is not important enough to spend a very small portion of you household income, then it's never going to work. I'm sure if you want certain clothes... a new phone... to dine out somewhere special... or something else in your life, you find a way. That said, recovery needs to be the #1 priority in your life, so you'll find a way if you truly want to recover. You can't afford to not go through recovery.
The recipe for success is to invest your 'all' to this program. The recipe for failure is to not do the work. Please choose wisely.
What's the cost?
The cost is arranged on a sliding scale fee , so it's determined on the basis of your household's total gross income. We do this because we don't want this program to be financially draining or out of range for anyone. Recovery is too important. When we have scholarships available, you can apply for one at that time if you qualify.
What is the Victory Retreat Online Recovery Program?
The VRO Recovery Program is a unique, multifaceted, and specialized individualized recovery program consisting of focused life coaching, one on one Biblical counseling, Discipleship through the Adult & Teen Challenge PSNL Program (which has an 87.5% success rate), mentoring, paying it forward, and Bible study. We call it an 'experience' and an 'adventure in self discovery'. We've been doing this since 2010, working with people by phone and video sessions online.
How do I know that the VRO Recovery Program is right for me?
If you are a born again believer, we can tell you right now that this is the program designed for you. Included is great discipleship, deep understanding of Biblical healing, specialized and enjoyable motivational life coaching, learning more about yourself with the PSNL Adult & Teen Challenge program, Bible study, interactive lessons, and more. Even if you are not yet a Christian, your world will open up to you with new and exciting knowledge. Remember that there is no 'one size fits all' in any aspect of life; however, we feel that Victory Retreat Online is the best shot you have at staying healthy, addiction free and clean for a lifetime, without ever having to worry about addiction again.
How long will I have to attend?
You will attend until you complete your program. Some graduate successfully in 3 months, while others can take up to one year or more. Your time here is 100% dependent upon how hard you work and how serious you are. Your time in this program varies from student to student. If you are diligent, do all the work, and take your recovery seriously, then there's no reason why your program needs to take more than 3 months.
Is your program covered by my insurance?
No! The reason is simply because we are a non-clinical Christian program. Insurance companies don't pay for alternative treatment programs - only clinical ones. We will not 'bow down' to the way the world unsuccessfully views and treats addiction.
Why isn't VRO Recovery free for everyone!
Accountability and value is greater when you pay for something. Besides, nothing is free in this life. As with anything in life, what you put 'in', you get 'out'. That said, we work with you on a sliding scale fee so that everyone can afford recovery with us.

What extras, outside of the program fee, will I need to buy?
The only extras that you will need to purchase are the materials for the Teen Challenge PSNL program plus a few other inexpensive Bible study materials, all coming to a total of between $100 to $200. We make no profit on these materials. We charge you the exact amount we pay + shipping. This cost must be paid just prior to beginning your program with us, as you will be using these materials for your recovery. If you don't have have your own Bible and you cannot afford one, there is BibleGateway.com online which provides many, many translations and study aids free for your use. They also provide audio Bibles in most translations should you prefer listening rather than reading. We are currently trying to get donations of Bibles so that we can supply them to those who want their own Bible and cannot afford one.
Since you are a 501c3 non-profit corporation, will the cost for my recovery tuition be tax deductible?
The answer is absolutely YES! Your payments become donations which are 100% tax deductible.
Do you have scholarships for those who are unable to afford even your modest fee?
While we will work with you on the basis of what you can afford, at this time we don't have scholarships; however, we're working on it with grant writing and seeking donations from foundations, individuals, churches, and other sources. We have made our program extremely affordable so that anyone can afford it. Remember how much money you once spent on drugs and/or alcohol? Now you can spend far, far less on getting better instead of getting high. Please bear in mind that conventional rehabs cost anywhere between $10,000.00 per month to $180,000.00 per month! Our program, is a teeny tiny fraction of the cost of conventional rehabs and is on a sliding scale fee basis. You can even pay as you go by the week or month. We are also personalized to meet your specific needs. We challenge you to a similar program for less. Everyone can afford this program. It's just a matter of prioritizing what's important to you.
PLEASE NOTE: To take advantage of our sliding scale fees , we require verifiable proof of your financial status. Based on that, your fee will be only a very tiny percent of your income.
Will you be working with me individually - one on one, or in a group?
We work with you one on one, simply because each and every person is unique and requires different things. Groups will be coming soon for those who want them. The groups will be in a group coaching format which will be absolutely transformational!
Is my participation confidential?
Yes, with just two exceptions. We must ask for your next of kin with whom we can speak if we notice any threat of suicide. In these very rare cases, we must contact the person that you appoint as your next of kin. This could be a parent, guardian, an adult child, sibling or spouse. You can see why we need to do this. Life is very precious and the root causes of addiction is almost always despair. Suicide threats are all taken very seriously. Also, if you have spoken to us about breaking any law(s), we are obligated to contact the proper authorities if that is something that needs to be done.
Are you available to me 24/7 if I feel I need to have contact with you?
Yes! We are available via text, encrypted chat, and email if you need us - 24/7. On occasion, if you need an extra phone call or video consult, we can usually make ourselves available if it is within normal business hours.
Do you limit texts, chats and emails?
There are no limits to texts, chats, or emails; however video conferences and phone calls must be scheduled. The quickest way to reach us is through texting or calling us. You can also request a link to an encrypted chat. As far as texts, chats & emails, they continue after your successful completion and graduation from VRO without further cost. Once you have completed our program, we are as close to you as a text, chat or email.
What, if any, written work will I be doing?
The Teen Challenge PSNL Program has written lessons that, when completed, we talk about together. They provide the basis for your counseling sessions and coaching sessions, as well as to provide an understanding of who you are and who you are capable of becoming. It is a wonderful tool we use to get you to where you need to be. There are also a variety of Bible study lessons you will need to complete as well. We can assure you that all written work is thought provoking, engaging, enjoyable and purposeful.
Must I be clean and sober before participating?
YES! YES! And another YES! Your mind and body must be detoxed, clean and sober before you can go into recovery, or nothing will make sense. You will need a clear and clean mind for success. If you are currently in an addiction, we also can provide a few sessions that will lead you to getting into medically supervised detox, after which you will be able to attend VRO for your rehabilitation. W e are not going to take your money if you're not fully detoxed and committed to total healing.
Will you be treating me with respect or will you be calling me a 'diseased addict' who will keep relapsing?
The Recovery Team at VRO are all compassionate and respectful. We do not believe in the 'disease theory' of addiction. It has not and cannot be proven. Relapse is not possible when you fully understand that addiction is not a disease. Getting sober and staying sober is a choice you make by confessing it to the Lord and making a decision to follow Him and His ways. God considers addiction to be sin, so, once you're saved, confession of this sin directly to Jesus is the beginning of total healing. We will always uplift you and focus on your needs for building self esteem. We do not bully or shame you ever! You are a human being with a temporary setback. We will fully support and encourage you every step of the way.
Can I be anonymous like in some of the other recovery programs?
Anonymity isn't an issue because this is not a support group ~ this is a full online recovery program. When we begin our online groups, you can remain anonymous if you choose to.
Must I be a born again Christian to attend your recovery program?
No. We discriminate against no one for any reason; however, you need to know that this program is based upon the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the ways of God as written in the Bible, along with Salvation through Jesus Christ. If you're not a believer, or you're not open to Biblical teaching in God's ways, then you're probably not a good fit for VRO.
Do I need to show you proof of who I am and my age?
Yes. We cannot engage teens, under 18, in our program, without the express written permission of their parents or guardian. That said, we must know your age and identity. Remember that when we connect online, we must verify who you are.
What if I miss one session or more? Will I be reimbursed?
You must notify us at least 24 hours in advance of your next session or there will be a penalty fee for a missed session without notice. We work with you individually, on a one-to-one basis, so we set aside time just for you. If you are a 'no show', then it takes precious time away from someone else. If you continue to be a no show then you will not have any balance of your tuition refunded. That said, you will be given the opportunity to make up any missed sessions. Whether you pay by the month, or for the entire 3 months, there are no tuition refunds issued should you quit; we do this for accountability purposes to keep you committed to your recovery.
Okay, I want to give this a try ~ what do I do?
Send us an email with your phone number and we will contact you with all of the details and forms to complete. We will get back to you in a very short window of time... most probably that same day if you contact us early enough.
We have a family member who is in an addiction; how can you help us?
Please contact us in this situation.
Online recovery sounds great, but I think I'd rather come to you in a residential setting; is that possible?
We're happy you asked that question because we are in the planning phase of opening what we think will be the best physical recovery retreat on the planet! Soon, this retreat will be a reality. We can, however, accomplish just about anything you need, right here online. If we feel you need something more, we will refer you to a local professional.
What are you waiting for? It starts with a simple choice. You can choose life or you can choose death. Time is quickly running out for all those affected by addiction. Choose life and living it to the fullest. Accept the opportunity for us to provide you with the Godly tools it takes to stay clean for a lifetime. Jesus and His Word provide all that you need and we are here to help map it all out with you. Please go to our contact page now!
Addiction recovery is a must!
There is a completely FREE telephone consult available for you. We can talk more about you and explain how we can successfully navigate you through an adventurous recovery. It will be a time of awesome self discovery. It's unlike any other recovery program out there. Don't you owe it to yourself to at least give it a try? Getting free and staying free, and finally finding your purpose, is an unforgettable, extraordinary experience that you'll live out for the rest of your life! What's better than that?
Volunteering for Victory Retreat Montana is all from home and virtual. We would love to talk with you about what we have available. You wouldn't have to give more than one or two hours each month in order to help radically change lives. Giving back is not an option ~ it's a command by God. So, whether you volunteer with us, or volunteer elsewhere, please begin to pay it forward today.
There are no pre-qualifications to join our team. All you need is to be is a true and faithful born again believer in Christ, and have a heart for the brokenhearted. If you say YES (and we hope you do), get ready for your life to be super blessed and to be changed toward greatness.
You may even be interested in a position on our Board of Directors. From time to time, we have openings. Although we accept any age group over 21, we especially welcome retirees to fill these seats.
PLEASE HELP US SAVE & RESTORE LIVES, MARRIAGES & FAMILIES!
We absolutely HATE to ask, and we won't ever beg, but we depend on your support to be able to accomplish all that we do. Addiction is not the problem of just one person; it's a family problem... a community problem... and now, it's a massive United States of America problem. If we don't do anything different, the problem will continue to grow. Addiction, sad to say, WILL affect you or someone close to you at some point; maybe it has already. The solution to this growing and lethal problem, begins with your donation, be it small, large, or with a monthly commitment.
Donations to this ministry, Teshuvah Road Ministries Inc, are 100% tax deductible, and they help save the lives of both teens and adults who want to put their addiction in their past to have a changed new life. We are a registered 501(c)3 with the US Federal Government and the state of Montana.
Your donations help pay for tuition, supplies and books required in our program for those who otherwise could not afford it.
We, and they, appreciate even $5. When you click our paypal donation link, you can just fill in the amount you wish to donate.
For a gift of $100 or more, we will send you a beautiful and easy to understand version of the KJV Bible.
A gift of $200 will start someone off with necessary Adult & Teen Challenge books, Bible study books, and a Bible! You cannot imagine how much that will help because these are the necessary items for our participants to begin their program. We make no money off of these items; we charge the same amount as our cost. Although our program is on a sliding scale and affordable, for many people that initial $200 for important study books is an obstacle. Please consider helping, if you can, with your generous, tax deductible gift of just $200. Without those books, they cannot start their recovery.
Thank you & God bless!

We function as a highly qualified addiction and recovery ministry outreach who are certified Adult & Teen Challenge teachers and certified Christian life coaches in a variety of areas, as well as ordained ministers.
