About Rapha

Rapha Treatment Center is a private, non-profit, faith-based drug and alcohol treatment program certified by the Alabama Department of Mental Health. Rapha was incorporated and began rehabilitation services in August 1997 as a 30-bed facility. Today, Rapha Treatment Center is the largest (54 beds) faith based residential drug and alcohol treatment facility in the state with low and high intensity residential services offered on the same campus. A phased program approach allows continuity of care for up to one year of continuous residential recovery and facilitates a Recovery Oriented System of Care (ROSC). Rapha Treatment Center has grown to become a vital link to the City of Gadsden and the Etowah County judicial/corrections system and an asset to surrounding counties and the state of Alabama.

Our Mission

The mission of Rapha Treatment Center is to provide a long term recovery program for drug, alcohol addiction, unhealthy relationships, co-dependency behavior, serious marital conflicts, and loneliness.

This is done through challenging and instruction to the clients in the change in their lives that can be achieved by the power of God.

This goal is accomplished only by the support we provide to the clients and their families as they build a new way of life.

During this process, we also assist the client in bridging the gap between their relationships, their faith, and their community.
