Tired of the addiction cycle?

Family Members of the Addicted is a Christ-centered group 

 of people who are standing together in faith,

trusting God to bring their loved ones to the point 

where they can receive the healing 

that is only offered by God through Christ Jesus.

As family members, we watch as they continue to deny they have a problem and get closer and closer to destruction. We try to help them in all kinds of different ways:

  • Rehab
  • Financial help
  • Medical care
  • Emotional counseling
  • Interventions
  • Transitional housing

It can become a viscous, expensive, and exhausting cycle where the addict finds himself near the point of death or in jail before he decides it’s time to make a lifestyle change. You put up the money for rehab and/or bail. After rehab and counseling, transitional housing sounds like a good idea (and it is, if the addicted is truly ready).

Sometimes, however, the next thing you know, he returns to his addiction—usually because of opportunity. Opportunity can come in the form of old “friends,” a little trust extended, a little money in the pocket, along with triggers and temptations that make it impossible to “Just Say NO.” Denial sets in again, followed by entitlement. Over and over this cycle continues, emptying the family members' emotional and financial bank accounts, and destroying relationships.

Is there hope?

Like similar programs, we can provide tools and knowledge, showing you how to avoid enabling, set boundaries, and recognize the danger signals. Unlike other programs, we will share with you our hopes and prayers. Rather than focusing on the pain, we choose to focus on the Healer, Jesus Christ. 

Our hope is in the truth and promises of God’s Word:

“I will give you a new heart with new and right desires” (Ezekiel 36:26). 

We believe that a person can overcome addiction without religion, but cannot receive complete healing and deliverance from the wrong desires (cravings, greed, or lust) without Jesus Christ. We rely on God for our strength to stand together in faith, fellowship and encouragement.

Join us and discover the truth that YOU ARE NOT ALONE!

 


MISSION STATEMENT  

"Of all the things that could be accomplished within a Healing and Recovery Group, the most important for the Families of the Addicted is:  

"That each person in the group come to realize a personal relationship with Jesus, resulting in a community-family of individuals who pray together and for one another's family members of the group experience the love, grace, and mercy given through the Holy Spirit for spiritual growth both for themselves and family members, resulting in healed, reconciled relationships.

"Our ministry to the Families of the Addicted will be successful if: 

"we can demonstrate how detrimental enabling has become to our addicted family members; we demonstrate 'detachment in love' and 'codependent no more' attitudes, while building our own faith-based relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."
