The Leading Christian Treatment Program for Women & Girls

Mission: To help every woman and girl experience the healing and liberating love of Christ in their recovery so that they are empowered to fully live their life with hope, joy, and freedom.

Diseases such as eating disorders, addiction, mood disorders, or co-occurring disorders take a tremendous toll on a person’s mind, body, and soul, to say nothing of relationships with family and friends. Similarly, these addictions and disorders can profoundly damage a woman’s or girl’s spirit. Her true identity as a child of God may be lost. She may feel completely disconnected from her creator — no longer feel His presence or believe in His love for her. When she needs Him the very most, He seems distant and remote.

At Timberline Knolls, The Grace Program (TGP) exists to reunite and deepen a resident’s connection to her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Our individualized treatment includes incorporating faith and spiritual renewal through Christ’s boundless love.

Participants in our Christian program are provided with a Bible and a Souls Like Stars workbook to use throughout their stay. They are paired with a licensed Christian primary and family therapist. Every member of TGP is committed to integrating New Testament truth with recovery principles. Our therapists are passionate about the healing power of God and helping each resident to connect with His extraordinary grace, compassion, and mercy.

This connection is accomplished through participation in three life-changing groups. Each group is designed to approach growth and learning differently, through education, experience, or interaction. Combined, these groups provide the most complete picture of who God is and the importance of His involvement in recovery.

Christian Treatment Groups at Timberline Knolls:

Soul Making

Soul Making is an interactive psychoeducational group committed to thoughtful exploration. The group endeavors to understand recovery topics such as identity, shame, boundaries, and forgiveness. Scripture and other faith teachings are used to discover the biblical viewpoint and God’s heart on these issues. The intent is to increase knowledge and deepen faith.


Sojourn is a process group that enables residents to share personal experiences as well as receive insight and encouragement from one another. It’s a safe, nonjudgmental environment where residents can talk about their belief, or lack of belief, in God throughout their lives. Questions such as, “Where was God when I was being abused?” or, “Does He really forgive me for what I’ve done?” are spoken, respected, and addressed.


Awakenings is an experiential group designed to help residents connect with their Heavenly Father on many levels. Activities and experiential exercises help wounded women and girls release to God their feelings of shame, inadequacy, guilt, anger, or rage. Art offers a nonverbal vehicle for them to express their adoration for the Lord, while music, song, and worship enable residents to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit and receive God’s love.

Learn More About The Grace Program

Our Christian residents also attend weekly Celebrate Recovery 12-Step meetings where the focus is on God and His power to heal.

Women and girls can elect to meet privately with our TK chaplain, who is a board-certified chaplain and a doctor of ministry with a focus in dignity in patient-centered care. Residents can attend Sunday church services in the community of Lemont, IL. In addition, each Monday at noon, adult residents are invited to join Christian staff for the Grace meal. This is a time for all to enjoy food and faith with one another through prayer and conversation.

The goal of TGP is to restore the hope that has been lost, reconnect each resident with God, and reestablish a life of prayer, praise, and worship.
