The name of the LORD is a strong tower; the righteous run to it and are safe. – Proverbs 18:10 (NIV)
Stronghold started as a vision of founding partners J.C. Chambers, Ed.D., and Marlene Ruff, M.A., as a place where those who are hurting could experience both clinical excellence AND God’s grace. There are certainly many fine treatment centers specializing in traditional clinical care along with several outstanding Christian based counseling services. However, we find the combination of these two healing approaches to be unique.
The mission of Stronghold is to dispense God’s grace in reaching those outside the church door while providing services that are clinically astute, sound, and at the highest level of excellence. Stronghold IS NOT in the business of preaching, judging, or proselytizing. Stronghold is about healing. The kind of deep healing that happens when therapy resides on the spiritual level, addressing all the elements that make up the whole person.
Clinically Excellent… Biblically Sound.
