Who We Are
Prodigal Sons & Daughters, Inc. (PS&D) is a Christ-centered addiction recovery ministry located in Turlock, California. We provide outpatient recovery services such as support groups, individual counseling, treatment planning, interventions, and family support, for young and adult along with an array of other services all at no cost to our clients. Our "whole-family" approach involves support for not only those struggling with addictive and compulsive behaviors, but also for those who are grappling with how to respond to their addicted loved ones. PS&D also has a one-of-a-kind outreach to teens and young adults who are struggling with substance abuse. At the end of the day, our desire is for all those who come through our doors to bare the mark of transformation and restoration . . . the fingerprints of God's healing touch.
Prodigal Sons & Daughters began as a response to one teenager in need. With some encouragement from his wife Jane, Ken Meuers was asked if he would mentor and counsel this young man, specifically in the area of substance abuse. Word spread, and as more young people were referred to Ken by concerned parents, it soon became evident that our community lacked any outreach efforts to young people in the area of substance abuse recovery. In the hearts of Ken and Jane, their calling to fill this need was solidified. One or two young people became three or four, and soon the Meuers were holding teen recovery meetings at their dining room table.
The ministry continued to grow and in 1999, PS&D acquired tax-exempt status as a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. Soon thereafter, the ministry, having outgrown the Meuers home, moved to a larger estate in East Turlock. In 2006, PS&D moved to our Olive Avenue location in downtown Turlock where it remains today.
For over 16 years, PS&D has faithfully provided recovery services to both young people and adult. We are an outreach to our community supported solely by individuals, businesses, and churches in our community. Therefore, our services are at no charge to our clients.
