Families in crisis due to addiction feel lost. Our clients are adrift, angry, confused, and frightened. Our experience tells us that they don’t know where to turn or how to navigate the vast array of options available.
We put into motion the right resources to address the crisis and put the family and the client on a solid course of recovery.
While our techniques are gentle, respectful, and non-confrontational, we recognize that there are many pathways to recovery for every individual including faith-based. No one has to hit their absolute rock bottom before accepting help.
Our organization is staffed with recovery coaches, and peer support specialist professionals.
This program is comprised of a community liaison and a peer support specialist that help individuals who are currently, or formerly, incarcerated, to devise a post incarceration home plan. They also advocate for their clients with judges, attorneys, parole and probation officers, and law enforcement. And they also provide their clients with such resources as basic need, housing, and options for treatment. The goal is to provide a warm hand off from incarceration to reentry.

Lifeline Connection is a small group curriculum that follows the 12-step AA model
Lifeline uses a variety of small group curriculum that is available from Living Free, and all Lifeline Connection should utilize the five components of recovery, applied through the Life-plan.
Lifeline also offers help to those who are not able to go to residential treatment, or who are ready to go, or those who need to go. Many inmates who have participated in Lifeline Connection groups, prefer this group curriculum 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 group is unique, and adjusts to the uniqueness of their community and regional needs with regard to inclusion, equity, and diversity.
