Our History

The Better Way is a non-profit program for men and women who struggle with drug and alcohol abuse and desire to conquer their addiction.


The program was founded in 1989, when the first meeting was held in December,  and incorporated in 1996 under the Pilgrim Rest Baptist Therapeutic Services, a 501(C) (3) federal tax-exempt organization.


Clients interact with a staff of Certified Addiction Counselors who lead the therapeutic sessions that address the addiction battle.  The staff are qualified to service those who reach out for help and they understand that the disease of addiction causes physical, mental, emotional and spiritual problems with the addict and their family.


Since its inception, the Program has provided support and assistance through spiritual and dependency counseling.
Our work is not just about freedom from drugs and alcohol, but freedom from unhealthy patterns of behavior and attitude learned before and after the addiction.


Our goal is to help clients become responsible, accountable, and self-sufficient for themselves, their children, their family, their friends, and their community.


We believe that with spiritual and clinical application over a period of time, a profound  and lasting change can occur in the life of an addict.  Progress is our goal in this Program, not perfection.


All are welcome regardless of race, age, sexual identity, creed, religion or lack thereof.  We are not interested in the amount of drugs that were used or what was done to obtain them, but what can be done about the problem and how we can show you The Better Way without drugs and alcohol.
