Our Building Freedom program is about equipping churches with the skills and confidence they need to help people find freedom from their addictions and associated issues such as homelessness, poor mental health, and loneliness and isolation.

This stage of support is about moving beyond relationship building and helping people to move towards breaking free from the above issues that have likely held them back for sustained periods of time.

“They provided us with a high level of training which gave our staff and volunteers the confidence they needed to grow in their individual ministries.”

We can you support you in how to best assess the most appropriate rehab for the individuals you are supporting in this recovery pathway.
