P​ resident Joshua Scalf founded R.S.M. on April 15, 2011. While serving four years in the Virginia Wise Correctional Unit, Mr. Scalf gave his life to Jesus Christ and discovered an overwhelming love for people who suffer from addiction. By the power of the Holy Spirit, he started teaching his fallen brother’s freedom from drugs and alcohol through Jesus Christ. Jesus filled Joshua’s heart with love that continued to pour out of him after his release from prison in October 2014. In answering God’s call to the gospel, R.S.M. has opened Christ-centered residential recovery homes designed to help drug addicts and alcoholics surrender their lives to God and become functioning contributing Christians in today’s society.


Our mission is to provide men and women with a practical and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to life-controlling problems. By applying biblical principles, R.S.M. endeavors to help people become sober-minded, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. Our goal is to help residents establish chemical-free lifestyles connected with issues they identify as life-controlling and recognize that these skills and tools are transferable to future problems and challenges they will face.



Our faith-based residential programs help individuals recover from drug and alcohol addiction and the life-controlling problems associated with it. Also, residents work on overcoming rebellion and the self-destructive behaviors associated with their substance abuse. They will also learn to develop positive life skills to help them refit society as a functioning Christian. Residents participate in spiritual growth activities, Biblical recovery and life skill classes, individual counseling, job skill training, and choir.

Storm Warriors


Our Mess is the Message

Everyone has a testimony. No matter how many broken pieces are left they can still be picked up, molded together by the Lord’s hands, and used to help others who are suffering the same storm God just brought you through.


The Spirit-Filled Christian Must Be a Storm Survivor

Whether it be a loss of a loved one, financial burden, poor health, depression, damaged relationships, addictions. God strengthens us through the storm.

He is With Us Every Step

As the storm withers and the dark clouds roll away we are standing strong on God’s word and his light shines through us to show the world we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us.

If it’s not made it to your front door step, it’s creeping across your back yard right now. Addiction has a domino effect of destruction. It’s not only the addict who suffers. They have, grandparents, a mother, father, brother, sister, family, friend, or neighbor who is also affected by their addiction. Homes are broken, family night is lost, and people’s lives are destroyed.
