Welcome to A.R.R.M.

Archangel Recovery and Reintegration Ministries (A.R.R.M.) was established because a need was recognized: a need to break the “cookie cutter” short term assistance molds our society and the healthcare system have grown so used to using when helping others. We create a case specific program for each individual that comes to us. We address all components of who we are, mind, body and soul. We address things past, who we are now and what a successful faith filled future looks like. We provide the means to transform yourself from old to new with one-stop-shop services, mental and physical health, emotional regulation and soul filling purpose. The programming is designed for a year, but our assistance is for life. Our goal is to create an army of graduates that will not only gain success in their own lives but mentor and assist others through theirs which is why our motto is, “Help one, Help all”.

A.R.R.M. Testimonies

I have found that life leads us all on a journey that we have our own decisions that we make daily. I am glad to say that through my faith in Jesus, I have been able to accomplish many things otherwise thought impossible to me. I’ve had plenty of struggle in life, which recently, even had me questioning my faith. I went through the initial Archangel Recovery and Reintegration Ministries (A.R.R.M.) protocol and with the help of friends and a never-failing Lord, I was able to renew self-peace and understanding that God never left me, but put other people in my place to get me through. I was able to overcome those doubts and now am living free.

Zachariah Barron CPRS

I moved to st cloud in October of 2021 and entered drug court in Stearns county, I graduated 14 months later. I am involved in the recovery community and volunteer with various non profits. I live and breathe sobriety and recovery, day and night. I am a big supporter of teaching people to have fun in sobriety and that our lives don't have to be boring. I have strengths in people skills and have not found much I can't help with. My typical work includes helping clients. Get to meetings and to handle their legal obligations and paperwork. I am open to working with any client and am always ready to answer the call to help others. My weaknesses are that I'm struggling to help clients find housing as it's a very hard thing to do with felons and addicts, also I tend get so busy I forget to check in with people from time to time and need to be reminded quite often. A lot of people say I have too much fun in recovery. I say there's no such thing.
