Westminster Rescue Mission Overview

Westminster Rescue Mission has been providing professional recovery services to patients since 1968. The founder of the company, Jim Resh, has founded five other facilities that provide such services to patients in other areas as well. The company takes a Christian-based approach to assist patients with their journey to sobriety and recovery from substance abuse disorders.
The founder believes that through prayer, religious practices, and motivation, patients are able to recover from their addictions successfully and have an opportunity for lifelong sobriety, instead of only equipping the patient with the ability to stay sober for a few short months.

Westminster Rescue Mission Housing

Westminster Rescue Mission owns property on a 30-acre land, which is located within Westminster. The facility provides patients access to a sober living environment where they can stay while they are being treated for their substance abuse disorders. The house can facility up to 32 male patients at a time. Up to three men are allocated to a room at the same time to ensure a larger number of patients can be provided accommodation in a safe environment while they are healing.
There is a second transitional living program available for patients who have undergone the main residential program offered by the facility, offering the patient access to continued support to ensure they can recover and to prevent the possibility of a relapse.

Westminster Rescue Mission Amenities

Westminster Rescue Mission solely relies on donations to continue providing patients with their professional addiction recovery services.
