A note to the wise... beware of Christians who just cannot stand for a pastor to be paid well. It's funny that we go to expensive restaurants, leave huge tips (20%) and never once think about what kind of home and car the waiters and restaurant owners drive and live in? Why is it that when it comes to attending church where all giving is completely voluntary... all of a sudden you want to know where the cash is going! The god of this world is money, and you can see it in the various posts here with bitter people who want to tell the pastor what he can drive and where he can live...etc. One of the most difficult and thankless jobs in the world is pastoring a church... and some of these posts are a testimony as to how thankless it is. I pastored a church myself for nearly 20 years and I grew so tired of this kind of criticism that I decided to join the work force and leave the pastoring to those who were tough enough to continue it. Guess what, I've made much more money doing meaningless things in the work force than I was ever paid for saving souls! Go figure!! Now I work for my cash... making more and living in an even bigger house and driving my dream BMW... and I don't have anyone complaining that I'm living lavishly off the church. I do my ministry free of charge and and happier than ever. A person with the skill and talents of someone like Pastor Randy Hand would make millions in the real world of business. He is being paid probably much less than he's worth in the business world. I know I was and when I defended myself, nobody believed it until I decided to show them. Those people are probably still complaining about their new pastor... it never stops with those who love money. To all you who attend Pastor Randy's church... give as unto the Lord and he will bless you for your giving. Don't listen to the bitter money lovers... they will always try to cast doubts while serving their money. Remember, giving is voluntary... don't give unless you want to. The Word doesn't say how much to give, it just promises that if you do, it will be "pressed down and shaken together, and given back to you!" Believe the Lord on giving and your life will be fabulously blessed! Don't bother with the nay-sayers... They are always around contributing nothing but bitterness. God bless you all abundantly! With all that said; I don't believe in a "prosperity" gospel at all... the point of the gospel only promises prosperity for your eternal soul. But God is good to givers and gives back... that's a promise... and it works... but the gospel is not about your financial prosperity... it's about your salvation and your place in the life to come. Keep your eye on the prize (that heavenly city)! Nathan Reynolds / Lathrop, CA, former pastor of Hayward Christian Life Center in Hayward, CA.

Quest House-Turning Pt-CA
In bed at 10:00 and up by 5:30 on weekdays. Weekends are more relaxed. You do group therapy from 7 or 8am till 3 pm. The big issue I had is that there are these things called "GR's"-- "group responsibility" if one of your peers breaks the rules everyone pays. 30 min for each "gr" eaither reading out of the AA big book or NA twelve steps and traditions. Facility is monitored by camera inside and out. They do allow tobacco and don't force religious ideals. The food is pretty good and everyone gets to participate in the kitchen for 2 weeks. There is family group that's fairly interactive but it can help. They have dogs that live outback and that's a great stress release. You're not allowed cell phones here but there is a pay phone. Chores are to be done after breakfast and after dinner. Staff can be extremely vague on rules so just treat this place like its your own home. You also have lockers assigned to each client so family can bring you soups and things to snack on... you can only get into them on designated times though. All together I'll give this facility 4 star. They may be dicks but they helped me. If you don't wanna change dont come here just stay in jail.

The Living Center
This place does not deserve a 1 star rating. As an employee at The Living Center in Fresno I discovered it was NOT licensed at the time. Troy Doorman refused to pay me. All of the clients are exploited and taken advantage of early in recovery. They are paying for tx in a SLE. Insurance companies were being billed for residential and outpatient Tx while clients received SLE and "other supportive services". There were clients who were SMI and needed to be in a board and care facility rather than a SLE pseudo tx center. Fee's start at 600. to 1500 a month. All clients reported being charged for treatment but never receiving it. The electricity and water has been shut off several times and each client only receives about 150 a month in food IF they are on the food plan, if they are not they have to buy their own food. I would recommend reading ALL reviews of TLC before placing a loved one at this facility and their other facilities I also recommend visiting the facility

Celebration Church
I love Celebration.. It's awesome! Not only did I come here and meet real people who love God, but I've been introduced to a REAL GOD who loves me and has a great plan for my life. Celebration is a place where you can come as you are, hear the Truth of the Word of God and be radically changed. Every volunteer and staff member is committed to one goal... SEEING SOULS SAVED! That's why I'm here and that's why I can confidently recommend this place to anyone and everyone! From the parking lot to the auditorium, you will feel loved, not judged. Every area of my life (finances, health, relationships, etc.) is better and Celebration is a HUGE part of that!

I love this church! Because of Celebration, I've been introduced to a God that can absolutely change and transform your life. The staff, leadership, and volunteers have made me feel welcomed from the moment i stepped foot in their building. I've been to both campuses and the way they connect and truly care about people is unreal. My family, my finances, MY LIFE is so much better as a result of connecting myself to this church. They speak the truth of the Word in all its entirety and I'm so grateful for that. I would recommend this church to ANYONE!

Come just as you are and you will experience the life God has for you. The people here are so loving. The staff has helped me in so many situations. I'm thankful to be a part of a church that cares about people and loves God. I watched my neighbor's kids get backpacks from this church when the mom couldn't afford to get them. I love this church!

Celebration has been a God send in my life and the lives of my family. Never have I felt so loved and welcomed. The pastors love people and want the very best for them. Celebration Church is a great place to learn from the bible, make new friends and get equipped for a better life!

I found my home church! Everyone is very welcoming, and the atmosphere is great. The worship is energetic and passionate, and the messages are powerful, yet practical. Their children's ministry is awesome too. Definitely a church worth checking out!
Tips & Advices
If you don't have insurance, you may be able to find outpatient programs like Narcotics Anonymous that offer counseling and meetings for patients at no cost.
Some facilities accept health insurance like United Healthcare, BlueCross BlueShield, Cigna, Humana and Medicaid. Many carriers support in-state assessment, detox and outpatient treatment. Some also partially cover residential or inpatient treatment. Because drug addiction is considered a disease, major health insurance providers must treat it like any other chronic condition that requires medical treatment. Be sure to inquire about co-pays and deductibles so you don't receive a surprise bill months after you start a program.
Yes. Some treatment programs promote quick sobriety through seemingly impossible means, such as herbal supplements or religious affiliation. Be wary of questionable claims like, "Shake your drug addiction in one week!" If the advertising sounds too good to be true, the program could potentially be a scam. Instead, look for organizations that include approval and certification from real doctors and health care providers.
Yes. Attending a program that is specific to your drug of choice will make your treatment much more likely to be impactful and successful.  Some provide certain users with medications like Valium and Xanax to counteract symptoms of distress associated with alcohol or drug withdrawals. You may not want to attend such programs if you fear that you may instead become addicted to these substances.
Yes. A physician can determine how severe your addiction is, which will help you decide if you want to try inpatient or outpatient treatment. He or she can also consider any withstanding health issues such as psychiatric conditions that should be factored into your decision. Next, check out facilities and programs that offer treatment for the substances that you abuse.
