Our vision is that Honey Lake Clinic will be an instrument that God uses to bring His love, forgiveness, peace, joy, and deep healing in a practical and life-changing way.

Honey Lake Clinic came into existence when a group of pastors, clinicians, and businessmen realized the dire need for Christian mental health treatment in the US. While a number of addiction and mental health treatment facilities can be found across the country, none have a holistic approach to deeply address a patient’s mind, body, and spirit.

Honey Lake Clinic is a scenic facility with Christian staffing and a Christ-centered program that practically heals past wounds and equips people with Godly decision-making skills to transform their lives.

Our 24/7 assessment, diagnostic, and intensive behavioral health treatment services are delivered by a highly trained and compassionate staff that provides much individualized care – all at an affordable price.

Our Founders

A Christian psychiatrist, Dr. Karl Benzio has successfully helped many addiction facilities integrate his faith-informed decision-making curriculum to improve their psychological and medical treatments.

While serving as a consultant, Dr. Karl met David Hoskins who was running a treatment facility. Together, they dreamed of building a facility – with Christian staffing and a Bible-based program – that would practically heal past wounds and equip people with Godly decision-making skills to transform their lives.

In 2016, they were connected with Pastor Stovall from Celebration Church in Jacksonville, FL, who had a beautiful retreat center and wanted to use it to minister to hurting people. God opened up amazing doors and brought in the right staff – that’s how Honey Lake Clinic was born!
