ODAAT Program – Say No to a Coffee in November to help….

ODAAT offers effective services for substance misusers who are serious about recovery.
How ODAAT works

How ODAAT works

A significant factor in our success has been our tried and tested emphasis on empowerment for our clients and the value of peer support.

Delivered through our recovery houses which are closely monitored and supervised by staff, but are deliberately not staffed 24 hours a day, residents assume personal and individual responsibility for their abstinence and recovery one day at a time. The regular planned and supervised involvement of Graduate ex-residents at every level of the programme creates a powerful sense of togetherness, mutual support, community and proof that individuals can use the programme to succeed. Indeed graduates are quite clear that these two pillars of the programme are a central part of its success for them. This is complemented by: one to one and group counselling, 12-step therapy groups, relapse prevention, anger management and life skills groups as well as social and sporting activities.

There are five distinct stages to the ODAAT programme and two ‘points of entry’.

1. Medicated and nursed detoxification (referral to external detox)

2. Pre-admission (2-21 days)

3. 1st Stage Programme (3 months)

4. 2nd Stage Programme (3 months)

5. Post-graduation support (Aftercare) (8 weeks to 1 year +)

Our guest speakers will be Jeff & Kristi Hickman from Marietta, Georgia, USA. The Hickmans serve as ministers in the North River Church of Christ. Jeff grew up in a single parent home in Dallas, Texas. After high school, he attended Princeton University where he graduated with a degree in English in 1993. He immediately went on to work for Oracle Corporation in Maryland where he became a Sales Account Manager in their Federal Division. He received a promotion, moved to California and soon thereafter was named the Sales Manager of the Year in 1996. While throwing away his cup of coffee at a local coffee shop, he was invited to a Bible discussion for Singles. Not long after that, he became a Christian in the Los Angeles Church of Christ. His first spiritual birthday was also his first day in the full-time ministry where he focused on the singles. Kristi grew up in a small town in Mississippi. She loved dancing and baton twirling from an early age and won several national competitions as well as a scholarship to university as the Featured Twirler! In between this she became Miss Teen USA and had a modelling career. Kristi left university with a BA in Journalism and moved to Los Angeles where she continued her modelling career filming national and international commercials for Reebok, Sunkist, Ford, and others. Additionally, she appeared in several music videos, most notably with ZZ Top. While in Los Angeles, Kristi was invited to the Los Angeles Church of Christ’s Arts ministry. She began to study the Scriptures earnestly and was baptised into Christ in March of 1995. Soon after, she left her career in the entertainment industry to work full-time in the ministry. Jeff and Kristi met while they were serving together in the singles ministry in the Manhattan Beach region of the Los Angeles church and they were married in December 1999. They have two beautiful school-age daughters, Hannah and Ella Grace. For over a decade, Kristi has counselled, trained and inspired women of all ages to love God with all of their heart, mind, soul and strength. Not only is she a powerful speaker, she is also a high-energy Zumba instructor; and the multiple classes she teaches have become a fun, popular work-out spot for many women in her community. Jeff graduated from the Athens Institute of Ministry with Honours in 2009 and is excited to be able to teach God’s word which is his passion in life.
