Brunswick Christian Recovery is located in Shallotte, North Carolina. Brunswick Christian Recovery is a residential Christian rehabilitation center for those with an addiction to drugs, both of the prescription and "street" variety and alcohol.

Brunswick Christian Recovery Focus:

Substance Abuse

Substance Abuse Treatment Centers focus on helping individuals recover from substance abuse, including alcohol and drug addiction (both illegal and prescription drugs). They often include the opportunity to engage in both individual as well as group therapy.

Opiate Addiction

Opiate Addiction Treatment Centers specialize in supporting those recovering from opioid addiction. They treat those suffering from addiction to illegal opioids like heroin, as well as prescription drugs like oxycodone. These centers typically combine both physical as well as mental and emotional support to help stop addiction. Physical support often includes medical detox and subsequent medical support (including medication), and mental support includes in-depth therapy to address the underlying causes of addiction.


The goal of treatment for alcoholism is abstinence. Those with poor social support, poor motivation, or psychiatric disorders tend to relapse within a few years of treatment. For these people, success is measured by longer periods of abstinence, reduced use of alcohol, better health, and improved social functioning. Recovery and Maintenance are usually based on 12 step programs and AA meetings.

Dual Diagnosis/Co-Occurring Disorders Treatment

Many of those suffering from addiction also suffer from mental or emotional illnesses like schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression, or anxiety disorders. Rehab and other substance abuse facilities treating those with a dual diagnosis or co-occurring disorder administer psychiatric treatment to address the person’s mental health issue in addition to drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What does Brunswick Christian Recovery offer?

Residential (inpatient) Treatment

They pray, worship and study together. They devote much time to the Biblical principles of a Christ centered life and the 12 steps. This is the best approach to avoid relapse. BCRC enhances the experience by emphasizing the necessity for moral inventory, confession of shortcomings, restitution for harm done, service to others and putting God first every day. Of all residents on campus at any given point in time, virtually all accept Jesus Christ as their Savior.

Treatment Types:

Individualized Treatment

Certain drug and alcohol rehab centers have standard treatment regimes they expect all patients to follow. Others offer individualized treatment, meaning they tailor treatment to a person’s specific background and needs. For example, a rehab facility may adjust a treatment program to take into account the type of drug or addiction from which the person suffers, their age, medical condition(s), religious beliefs, or lifestyle.


12-step programs are addiction recovery models based on Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). A number of substance abuse programs (including some drug and alcohol rehab centers) use the 12 steps as a basis for treatment. Beginning steps involve admitting powerlessness over the addiction and creating a spiritual basis for recovery. Middle steps including making direct amends to those who've been hurt by the addiction, and the final step is to assist others in addiction recovery in the same way. 12-Step offshoots including Narcotics Anonymous (NA), Cocaine Anonymous (CA), Dual Recovery Anonymous (DRA), Sex & Love Addicts Anonymous (SLAA) and Gamblers Anonymous (GA).

Aftercare Support

Completing a drug or alcohol rehab program shouldn’t spell the end of substance abuse treatment. Aftercare involves making a sustainable plan for recovery, including ongoing support. This can include sober living arrangements like halfway houses, career counseling, and setting a patient up with community  programs like Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) or Narcotics Anonymous (NA).

Therapies Offered:

Individual Therapy

In individual therapy, a patient meets one-on-one with a trained psychologist or counselor. Therapy is a pivotal part of effective substance abuse treatment, as it often covers root causes of addiction, including challenges faced by the patient in their social, family, and work/school life.

Group Therapy

Group therapy is any therapeutic work that happens in a group (not one-on-one). There are a number of different group therapy modalities, including support groups, experiential therapy, psycho-education, and more. Group therapy involves treatment as well as processing interaction between group members.

Experiential Therapy

Experiential therapy is a form of therapy in which clients are encouraged to surface and work through subconscious issues by engaging in real-time experiences. Experiential therapy departs from traditional “talk therapy” by involving the body, and having clients engage in activities, movements, and physical and emotional expression. This can involve role-play or using props (which can include other people). Experiential therapy can help people process trauma, memories, and emotion quickly, deeply, and in a lasting fashion, leading to substantial and impactful healing.

Life Skills

Life skills trainings involve all the skills a person must have in order to function successfully in the world. These include time management, career guidance, money management, and effective communication. Truly successful addiction recovery is based on the ability to not only live substance-free, but to thrive. Life skills teaches the practical necessities of functioning in society, which sets clients up for success in life, and therefore sobriety.

Brunswick Christian Recovery Highlights:

There is physical work to be done at the facility, and each resident is expected to cooperate by doing their share. By living, studying and working together in an atmosphere of Christian love and understanding, residents can find themselves through the love of Christ.
During the first six weeks of their program their aim is to provide a structured environment for spiritual growth. BCRC does not offer conventional drug and alcohol treatment. Their program is designed to encourage recovery by developing a relationship with Jesus Christ and working the 12-step program. By design, Phase I residents will pray together, worship together and study the biblical principles of a Christ-centered life. Residents will work with sponsors and partners to learn how to do a moral inventory, confession of shortcomings, restitution for harm done, and service to others.
After completion of the initial six weeks, each resident will be reviewed by staff and senior residents. The areas of review will include spiritual growth, personal responsibility, compliance with rules and regulations, Trust, willingness, and active recovery. In phase 2, residents will begin to take on more responsibility and will have the opportunity to build more and more trust.
Like many Recovery Centers after completion of the program the opportunity to go onto BCRC Volunteer Staff is available for select individuals. You will continue to learn and grow in your relationship with Christ as well as continue on to work the 12 steps with a sponsor. All the while you will be engaging with other men as you offer your guidance and experience on the road to recovery.
The Pastoral Care at BCRC is ongoing. In addition to interacting with loving and caring pastors and teachers every day, each resident is also encouraged to meet one on one with Pastor Shreve for specific care and support unique to his needs. Pastor Shreve’s comments are full of Godly wisdom borne of having worked with hundreds of men addicted to drugs and alcohol (including family members). The Pastoral Care comes with love and compassion and an urging to do the work necessary to reclaim one’s life.
A twelve-step program is a set of guiding principles outlining a course of action for recovery from addiction, compulsion, or other behavioral problems. The method was adapted and became the foundation of other twelve-step programs. At Brunswick Christian Recovery Center, Jesus Christ is the higher power and through him all things are possible. Residents of Brunswick Christian Recovery Center will begin to work the twelve steps while they are here. They will work out of the Life Recovery Bible and workbook every day in private and group settings.
