On Sept. 4, 2013, Andre Fournier will facilitate the first Solid Rock Road recovery group through New Bedford's St. Paul United Methodist Church. Andre has been involved in Mobile Loaves and Fishes in his community, and has seen a need to provide those with addiction issues on a deeper level. In his words: "Using the 10 Principles in FSSR, you have the opportunity for healing and deliverance. Jesus wants to set you free. What have you got to lose?"

Christian Recovery Begins in La Paz

In May, The Solid Rock Road Christian recovery program was started in La Paz. Pastors Jerry and Jamee Pineda arrived in the Baja California Sur region of Mexico in April for a dual purpose.

Pastor Writes Forward to
Follow The Solid Rock Road

     Wow! Isn’t this book timely! As a seminal approach in a world needing drug and alcohol solutions, this could just be that book.  

Jamee Rae Pineda and Sherry Colby have written a groundbreaking book with Follow The Solid Rock Road: Pathway to Radical Recovery, which addresses a deep philosophical split in drug and alcohol treatment.

While most addiction treatments keep people on a perpetual path of coping, Jamee and Sherry open the door to freedom in God and set people on the path to achieve it. Initially, this path doesn’t seem to differ much from existing recovery systems, but it ultimately results in irreconcilable differences. 

Follow The Solid Rock Road teaches that one finds freedom through the teachings of Jesus Christ, His atonement, and having an honest walk with God. The 10 Principles of The Solid Rock Road describe how one can identify their addiction, address their addiction, and subsequently be delivered from it.

This work is not bogged down with stodgy or clinical verbiage but is interspersed with anecdotal evidence that illustrates how these principles work.  The personal stories from the lives of Jamee and Sherry are transparent and refreshing. Thank you for this level of honesty. It is quite helpful in showing that the 10 Bible-based Principles are more than untested theories, but instead have been applied and proven.

The book is sprinkled with life application exercises and hard-hitting questions. When completed, these will bring a person to self awareness and true change.  This is a valuable handbook for life transformation.

Another important aspect of this book is that it can be used individually or in group settings. The final great feature is that the authors offer personal help and interaction for those involved in this process – the addicted, loved ones of the addicted, ministry leaders, and pastors.

As stated in this book, why walk The Yellow Brick Road when we can get on The Solid Rock Road?

-- By Pastor Steve Schmelzer


Christian Recovery in Oregon


The Solid Rock Road is a Christian recovery ministry in Medford, Oregon. It was developed by three former substance abusers, including Sherry Colby – a certified alcohol and drug counselor, Pastor Jerry Pineda and Jamee Rae Pineda. The purpose of The Solid Rock Road recovery program is to provide believers with Biblical truths to remind them of the authority they have over their sin nature and the devil. The Solid Rock Road recovery program takes participants on an experiential journey to learn how to win the battle for their own souls.

The Solid Rock Road recovery ministry involves closed groups lasting 10 weeks. Once a group has been formed and begins, there are no new people allowed in. This helps establish trust and a group dynamic that results in change.

Each week participants experience one of the 10 principles that are discussed in the book “Follow The Solid Rock Road: Pathway to Radical Recovery.” The book was written by Jamee Rae Pineda and Sherry Colby to provide a training and recovery resource for addicts, ministry leaders and pastors.

While The Solid Rock Road recovery program is in Medford, Oregon, the book has allowed the Christian recovery program to expand throughout the state, the nation and the world. Plus, the team is available to speak, teach and train churches. Subjects for preaching include Freedom from Addictions, Spiritual Warfare to Win over Addictions, Obedience as a Key to Overcoming Addictions, and many other addiction-related subjects. The training is two-tiered: first, how to establish the Solid Rock Road recovery ministry, and secondly, how to minister in a group setting using the book "Follow The Solid Rock Road: Pathway to Radical Recovery."

The difference between The Solid Rock recovery ministry and other Christian recovery programs is that The Solid Rock Road doesn’t believe that addicts should continually congregate together, and forever. In fact, those who graduate from the Christian recovery program are encouraged to discover their destiny in God and to assimilate into the Body of Christ. When they’re not spending time meeting with other addicts, they should be connected with a Christan leader who will teach them the ways of God and make them accountable. This actually replaces the need for a sponsor.

Not every former addict is called into the recovery ministry. Therefore, it is critical that those who find freedom in Christ also find their true calling in God!

The Bible doesn’t promote the concept of same-sin affiliation. In fact, what The Solid Rock Road ministry team has learned over the years is that it’s better for addicts to have fellowship with those who don’t share their sin nature. This way, those in recovery from addictions can take on the good character of those they are associating with.

The Solid Rock Road Launches
"Recovery Through the Proverbs"

June, 2010: Jerry Pineda, director of The Solid Rock Road recovery ministry, recently announced that his team has developed a new course titled Recovery Through the Proverbs. This course is designed for Christians in addiction,  those who have previously struggled, and people who are new to the Christian faith.

Recovery Through the Proverbs is currently being taught at Joy Christian Fellowship every Wednesday from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. According to Pineda, Recovery Through the Proverbs adds an important element to The Solid Rock Road Christian recovery system."Our 10-week Solid Rock Road program requires that participants have 30 days clean and sober," he explained. "This new course allows everyone in and guides them to the right path. It also prepares them for the lifelong commitment to sobriety and in many cases, will move them into the next phase of our program."

In February, Jamee Rae Pineda and Sherry Colby, CADC1 released their book Follow The Solid Rock Road: Pathway to Radical Recovery. They are currently writing a complementary group facilitation manual, as well as Recovery Through The Proverbs Handbook.


  Book Promotes 10 Bible-Based

Principles for Recovery


In February 2010, Ziglag International published Follow the Solid Rock Road: Pathway to Radical Recovery, a 240-page book that promotes 10 Bible-based principles and is targeted to Christians who struggle with addictions.

According to authors Jamee Rae Pineda and Sherry Colby, the book takes readers on “a spiritual journey of self discovery that results in clean and sober living.” The book is the culmination of eight years in ministry with The Solid Rock Road -- an outreach of Joy Christian Fellowship. Within the pages are spiritual truths, exercises and snippets of Pineda’s and Colby’s life experiences. Both are former addicts who tell on themselves in the book in order to explain or highlight the principles.

“We understand the issues of addicts because we’ve been there,” explained Pineda, who has 15 years of sobriety following decades of substance abuse. “We’re talking directly to the addicts in the book, and we don’t hold much back. It’s hard-hitting for a reason – we are reminding the Christian community about the power of God; about the importance of following the right path and staying on it. And we’re taking readers on an experiential journey where they learn how to fight and win the battle for their own souls.”

Pineda is program manager of The Solid Rock Road. She earned a Biblical Theology Degree from Zoe Bible College in 2002 and has worked as a professional writer and editor since 1985. She owns Writing For All Reasons in Medford, Oregon, with a current specialty in social media. Pineda is married to Jerry Pineda, the director of The Solid Rock Road who has worked for OnTrack’s Dad’s Program and as a counselor for Casa Oasis, a California-based pre-release prison program in San Jose.
 
Colby is lead counselor of The Solid Rock Road ministry. She holds a Human Services Degree and is a state-licensed Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor (CADCI). Colby worked for OnTrack and later at the Addictions Recovery Center (ARC) where she co-facilitated dual diagnosis mental health groups for clients with co-existing addictions and mental health disorders.

“Our book and our ministry gives Christians the resources and the information they need to experience freedom in Christ,” said Colby. “We are passionate about spreading the message of The Solid Rock Road because it simply points to the cross of Jesus Christ and to the power of God. We believe that God is enough!”

The Solid Rock Road team is available to speak at churches, events and organizations, and will train pastors and leaders on how to facilitate 10-week groups. Pineda and Colby are also writing their group process manual related to The Solid Rock Road Christian recovery ministry.
