Addiction Awareness

We offer help and hope for the addicted and their loved ones.

Alcoholism or drug dependency is a primary disease that is chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal if not treated.

It creates immense physical, psychological, and spiritual problems for the individual and for their families.

 

All family members are affected by the disease—not just the person who is addicted. Everyone experiences emotional pain, yet each person feels alone, unable to reach out for help.

“Healing places for individuals and families touched by addiction are successful when congregations learn facts, avoid judgments, practice love and apply firm supports.” —The Rush Center of the Johnson Institute

The mission of  the TLC Addiction Awareness ministry team is to provide resources for the purpose of prevention and treatment of addictive behavior and substance abuse. All are welcome.
