“When people lose their way, the smart ones stop and ask for directions”
If you (or someone you know) has lost their way, due to drugs, substance or alcohol abuse, we may be able to help
For many people, getting off alcohol and other drugs is not the hardest part of overcoming an addiction. Staying off and living alcohol and drug free is. There are many reasons for this; one is having to face the pain you’ve been trying to escape from. This pain may have been caused by abuse suffered as a child, abandonment, the loss of a loved one or a failed relationship. These are not easy issues to face at the best of times, but they are that much harder when combined with the additional problem of recovering from dependency on alcohol or drugs.
No matter what the reasons were when you first started to use alcohol or drugs, once a pattern of using has been established you may not be able to see any other way of coping.
When you stop using alcohol or drugs, particularly after a long history of substance abuse, you may be swamped by an avalanche of painful emotions. This can be overwhelming for you and your loved ones – especially if you were unprepared for it, don’t know what’s happening or what to do – or you assume that sobriety is always like this.
No wonder so many people turn back to the bottle or drugs, despite their best intentions.
If these things sound familiar it is a good idea to find support. If you have a life-controlling habit – such as misusing drugs or alcohol – and you would like to get your life back on track – we may be able to help.
freedom2live provides an opportunity for a change of lifestyle for people who are committed to overcoming life-controlling substance/alcohol misuse.
We aim to encourage…
…a sense of belonging and individual identity in an open, non-judgemental atmosphere.
…an empowering environment using a holistic approach, helping you to meet your emotional, spiritual and psychological needs and reach your true potential.
We’re a Christian organisation, and are here to show God’s love in action – that’s all. You will never be forced or coerced into seeing things our way.
What the Programme offers…
The Structured Day Programme is not medical or psychiatric and we are keen to point out that it is not a ‘rehab’ programme. Instead, the approach is holistic with emphasis on a healthy, balanced and structured lifestyle.
Who can we help?
The Residential Recovery Centre is available for women 18 years or older with dependency problems can stay (with or without children).
The Structured Day Programme can be accessed anyone age 18 or over who lives within easy reach of Buxton, Derbyshire, UK, and who wants to overcome a life-controlling dependency – such as drugs or alcohol – and move on in their life.
