Military Specialization Program (MSP)

Faith-centered addiction recovery for veterans in North Carolina

The Military Specialization Program (M.S.P) is a faith-centered recovery program for active-duty soldiers and veterans struggling with addiction and life-controlling issues stemming from combat, or non-combat origins. The Veteran’s Program is a 16-week program located on 30 acres in Elizabethtown, NC. Upon successful completion, graduates will have the option to transfer to our Training facilities in Carthage, NC, where they will further their advancements in recovery with additional Career Readiness Classes, and Life Skills Training. Our Active-Duty Program is 28 days in length and located in Carthage NC. Upon completion, the soldier will return to his unit in mission-ready condition. Through a partnership with Warrior’s Journey, not only will our students be engaged in traditional ATC curriculum, but they’ll also complete curriculum focused on service-related trauma. The M.S.P will also offer licensed, clinical counseling, electronic assessments, group therapy, and spiritual formation.
