It's time to

Overcoming addiction is a challenging and lengthy process. However, having a healthy support system can greatly increase your chances of success in your recovery journey. It’s also crucial to develop effective tools that can help you rebuild your life. B-Free is designed to provide the tools for recovery.

B-Free from Addiction: A Faith-Based Addiction Recovery Program was written as a practical guide toward lasting recovery from any addiction. B-Free focuses on how to change rather than why.

This 15-week program strives to help you be more aware of the habits of heart and mind. The stability of our lives depends on our character. It is character, not passion, that keeps marriages and families together. In this imperfect world, it is character that enables people to survive, to endure, and to rise above their misfortunes. The result of good moral character is greater inward strength.

Many other recovery programs are shame-based and require you to identify with your addiction (e.g., “I am an alcoholic.”). B-Free takes a biblical approach and teaches biblical principles to apply in your life that lead to a new life in Christ, completely free from addiction. It is not shame-based, nor does it support negative identifiers.

Our Mission

Our mission is to provide a positive and supportive faith-based environment where adults with life-controlling issues can gain insight and learn new skills that result in a more healthy and productive life.

Our Goals

Our goals are to address the needs of individuals and families in our community; to promote and encourage good character, integrity, and family values; and to promote behavioral change through quality information and peer-to-peer support.

Our Focus

Our focus is to create positive habits. We know from God's Word that the only way to have a new life is first to renounce the old one and embrace the new. "If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
2 Corinthians 5:17 KJV.
