LIFE HOPE TREATMENT CENTRE.
Who we are:
Life Hope Treatment Centre (L.H.T.C) is a religious based health care of the Seventh Day Adventist Church- Kenya Lake Conference. L.H.T.C was started in 2013 in the month of June in response to the high rate of drug and alcohol addiction cases and the need to rehabilitate addicts and to restore broken lives and families. LHTC is located within the Headquarters of the SDA Kenya Lake Conference in Kendu Bay and off Kendu Bay-Oyugis road, next to Gendia Boys High School.
LHTC caters for both male and female clients and has a capacity of 30 clients. Since it began, LHTC has handled a number of clients who have recovered and are in good contact with this Treatment centre in assistance towards their continuous journey of recovery and to help those addicts who still suffer.
LHTC focuses on the personal growth, spiritual progress, positive lifestyle and personal responsibility and acceptance.
It also enhances inculcation of positive values and change within the society. This healthcare facility has treatment plan that is implemented in three stages.
This is the stage that the client begins between 24 hours and 96 hours after the admission at the centre. This treatment stage handles the clients immediate challenges of withdrawal experience. Denial problems are also broken at this stage. Natural detoxification also begins at this stage. The clients are introduced to the centre normal operation program.

Primary Treatment Stage.
This stage entails the 12 step-work program and this is the core of the treatment of addiction. The stage runs for a period of eight weeks. Primary counseling or treatment stage helps the clients to understand the benefits of quitting the use of alcohol or drugs.
Spiritual awakening is also learnt at this stage. This helps the client to be aware of the presence of God through prayer and meditation.
Discharge Plan or Relapse Prevention stage.
This is the last stage of treatment program at LHTC. Relapse prevention stage helps in teaching the clients on what they have to expect in the society once discharged like, compulsion by old friends to have a drink, craving and mechanisms of minizing them.
