"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11
One of the goals of Lifeline is to offer participants a faith-based alternative to the groups mandated by the new concept of drug court. Also, offering help to those who are not able to go to residential rehab, or ready to go, or even needing to go. Many of the inmates being ministered to through corrections ministry, prefer and need encouragement and accountability, but choose not to go into a residential program because of time already served by incarceration, and excess loss of family and work time. Each Lifeline ministry is unique, and adjusts to the uniqueness of their community and regional needs.
As you have already discovered, substance abuse and other life controlling behaviors lead to negative consequences.
You may be like many individuals who have tried various methods, or have been ordered to mental health programs, to try to correct these destructive patterns. Have you tried so many times to change and nothing seems to work?
We believe the God who created you has the most effective answers for you. He will lead you towards a productive and truly satisfying life.
If you agree, we would be honored to work together with you. The group sessions we offer will be led by caring and trustworthy individuals, who will treat you respectfully, yet will lead a no-nonsense approach. Their goal is to guide you in discovering how you can overcome harmful or destructive patterns.
Carroll County Lifeline Connection is a Living Free community. Living Free is a national organization that helps bring hope through the Word of God for those that are dealing with a life controlling issue. More information can be found at livingfree.org.
