Q: Who do we help?
A: Lifeline Connection offers weekly support groups for people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, as well as other life-controlling problems like anger. We also provide support groups for the family members and loved ones of people with addictions. Our groups can also serve as ongoing support and accountability to individuals who have graduated from a residential drug-recovery program.
Q: What kind of groups do we offer and how long is each group?
A: Using powerful and life-changing curricula from Living Free our support groups address the following topics:
Q: How much do the groups cost?
A: Each group has a one-time tuition fee which must be paid at the time of registration. The Stepping Into Freedom, Concerned Persons, Insight and Anger groups cost $20 each, including a workbook for each course.
Q: When and where do the groups meet?
A: We are growing but here are the current locations and information:
Q: I’m a family member of an addict. Why should I participate in a Concerned Persons group?
A: Your health and the health of your family is a vital part of the healing of your loved one! Participate to support your recovering loved one, to sustain your family, and to strengthen yourself!
Q: I’m struggling with a life-controlling problem. Will the Stepping Into Freedom group help me?
A: It depends on how motivated you are to change. Jesus asked a lame man, “Do you want to get well?” He asks you the same question today—how much do you want to be free of your addiction? If circumstances prevent you from attending our 12-month residential program at this time, this group will help you IF you are ready to let go of your past and allow God to heal you. If you feel that it would be too hard to get free without physically separating yourself from your current world, our residential program is the best fit for you!
