September is National Recovery Month, a time to increase awareness and celebrate the successes of those who battle addictions.
Heartland’s “Rally for Recovery” is our 2nd Annual Run/Bike/Walk-a-Thon fundraiser to provide practical needs for those in recovery. Whether you’re walking to create awareness, to honor a loved one, or to celebrate your own victory, we need you! Make a difference in the fight, one step at a time. Here are some ways to get involved:
- Click here to sign up today to walk/bike/run to help raise funds and awareness.
- Get your miles done anytime before the end of September… or do it during our in-person walk at Homecoming September 25th (or do both!). Be on the lookout for specific details regarding time and registration.
- Or, simply donate by sponsoring one of our Rally participants.
With your help, Heartland Recovery Programs will continue strong in our mission of providing a place where men, women, and youth can be set free from life-controlling issues through the saving power of Jesus Christ.
*Rally for Recovery is open to anyone who wants to participate or give (not just Heartland residents).
If you have any questions, let us know!

Get ready to focus on rebuilding your life!
At its heart, true recovery is getting back to a right relationship with Christ. That’s why at Heartland Recovery, we don’t consider ourselves a rehab, but a recovery program—it’s not just about going somewhere and getting sober, but experiencing a changed life through a changed heart.
COMMIT TO CHANGE
Coming to a 12-month Christian recovery program gives residents more than just sobriety—it’s about a lifestyle transformation. We take people who are ready for change, let them get clean, and teach them how to live a life for Jesus… because true freedom is only found in a relationship with Christ.
While they’re here, residents will:
• Meet with group leaders one-on-one who walk them through life circumstances in a healthy way and can say, “I’ve been where you are.”
• Learn the the fundamentals of the Gospel through classes, small groups, and church services.
• Walk in sobriety through the power and presence of Jesus, and the Word of God.
• Grow in life skills such as managing emotions, parenting, conflict resolution, finances, marriage, sexual integrity, community service, and more. And to begin walking out what they have learned.
Recovery Program facilities for men and women are located in the Heartland Community in northeast Missouri—a peaceful, rural setting far removed from the distractions of life.
Heartland Recovery is part of CNS International Ministries, Inc.—a place of ministry to men, women, and youth struggling with life controlling issues.
Many of the people who live and work in this intentional Christian community have themselves been impacted by addiction. Opportunities for program residents to interact with families at church services, small groups and other activities has been a vital part of the recovery process as they learn to build healthy relationships and are encouraged by others who have walked through the same process.
Heartland Community Church was founded in 1995 and the ministry of CNSIMI has grown to include a K-12 school, recovery programs, youth and children’s homes, and a Bible College.
One unique aspect of the Heartland Recovery program is the participant cost. Traditional rehab programs are very expensive, but through donations from our ministry supporters, we are able to offer help to anyone who desires to see their life restored.
If you or someone you know is looking for a way to move forward out of addiction, contact us today!

September is National Recovery Month, which coincides with our Homecoming event to celebrate more than 25 years in ministry. We’re looking forward to re-connecting with friends as we “declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9).
Heartland is an intentional community built around a local church. We have been blessed by many people throughout the years who came to receive help, but also those who felt called to help others as they found hope and healing. We know that many of those spiritual seeds that were planted are still producing a harvest in families and ministries across the nation and around the world.
Admission is free to this mostly outdoor event, which will include ample opportunities for fellowship—kid-friendly games and activities, cornhole, an afternoon program featuring music, Heartland Recovery testimonies and a special guest speaker.
Special Guest Speaker: Alan Robertson, “Son of the Duck Commander”
Alan Robertson grew up hunting and fishing and helped build the foundation of the family business in the ’70s and ’80s. Back in the day, he and Phil would travel around Louisiana and Arkansas selling duck calls to stores right out of their truck. The sales pitch back then was the same as it is today: “These calls are the best ’cause they sound just like a duck!”
Alan returned to the family business after serving in full-time ministry for more than 25 years. He plays a vital role in the family’s commitment to spreading the gospel of Christ through their love of hunting and the great outdoors.
Alan will be speaking during the late afternoon session September 25. A merchandise table will be set up at the event where you’ll have a chance to meet him in person and pick up some great resources. Currently, Alan also co-produces Phil Robertson’s new show, In the Woods with Phil on CRTV.com and is working on new projects to produce with the goal of bringing healthy, godly and family friendly content to television, the internet, and our culture.
