No one is ever too broken, too scared or too far gone to change. Never stop fighting, and most of all
keep your eyes on Jesus Christ.
Every addiction is the result of trying to escape from something by going in a direction of a need that is not
being met. In order to move past our addiction we need to understand that the joy, happiness, fulfillment
what ever it might be can only be complete with Jesus Christ.
I’m tired of losing my family and friends to drugs and alcohol. Again I am at the point where I push them
all away before they push me away
I’m tired of hearing sin called sickness and addiction a disease. It is the only disease I know of that we’re
spending hundreds of millions of Rands every year to spread
And you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free - John 8:32
This day I call the heavens and the earth as witnesses against you that I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live - Deuteronomy 30:19
For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do
what is good, but I cannot carry it out. - Romans 7:18
Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous! Do not tremble or be dismayed,
for the LORD your God is with you wherever you go - Joshua 1:9
From a rehabilitation perspective we understand the need for education, and so we regularly upload short clips packed with tools to help not only the addict but the family too. As a church we also make available our weekly sermons for you to watch, we are currently running content on Dstv Channel 263 Second Chances.

Walking With Winners life recovery centre is conveniently located just south of Johannesburg in Balmoral Estates, De Deur, which allows the centre to operate free of the hustle and bustle of a city lifestyle yet close enough to be within families reach. Should they be required, we are less than 4km from doctors and dentists rooms and have a nurse as well as a psychologist within close proximity on 24hr standby. Unlike most other faith based and secular rehabilitation centre’s we pride ourselves on an open door policy and are also one of the only rehabilitation facilities in the country that, should we be requested to do so, will fetch your loved one from a drug den or “crack house”.
Walking With Winners Recovery Center provides separate services to men and woman who are addicted to alcohol and drugs and seek recovery and help from that addiction, as well as Christian principles. The 6 month Christian Rehabilitative program is based on the fundamental belief that solutions to drug and alcohol abuse can be found through faith in God, along with the Celebrate Recovery program as well as Truth About Drugs. Walking With Winners Recovery Centers continues to be a leader among its addiction recovery program peers in its success rate of program graduates who maintain abstinence and sobriety.
The work therapy and Christian study, combined with the peaceful environment (men and woman separated), allow residents time to re-evaluate their lives and begin to understand why they have faltered along the way. Walking With Winners is dedicated to the purpose of leading the addicted to victory through Jesus Christ and to show the resident that there is still hope and love if you have faith in Christ. Walking With Winners Recovery Centers’ amenities and activities provide opportunities for fitness, individual and team play, and healing. Residents can enjoy basketball, volleyball, gym room, ping-pong, band-practice, rugby, soccer and community service engagements. Bible studies and morning devotions are provided each day of the week. Celebrate Recovery is done on Mondays and then we have Truth About Drugs on Thursdays to educate them further about the dangers that drug addiction poses.
