You Can Recover!
So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. John 8:36
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. 2 Corinthians 5:17
The Recovery Ministry serves Progressive Baptist Church and the community at large concerning issues related to Alcoholism and Substance Abuse. You can live in freedom. Let us help you.
Here is how we help
We provide the following:
Progressive is connected with a network of services that help facilitate and expedite confidential treatment services such as Detox, Inpatient and Outpatient Treatment and Recovery Homes and Halfway Houses. We also provide referrals for shelters, and referrals for victims of domestic violence.
2) Support Groups
Free N One: We provide confidential, Christian based 12 steps recovery support groups - Free N One (Free from alcohol and drugs and one in Christ) for the addict or alcoholic. These meetings are held every Saturday at the church at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm.
Tough Love: We also provide another meeting called Tough Love. The Tough Love meeting is for the family or friends of the addicted person to help them cope with the wreckage of the addicted person's abuse of drugs and alcohol. Alcoholism and Substance Abuse affect not only the addict, but everyone around them who cares about them. The addicted person does not have to attend the Free N One meeting for a spouse or loved one to attend the Tough Love Meeting. Tough Love is a separate meeting from Free N One and is held on the same day and time, every Saturday 6pm-7:30 pm at Progressive.
For both meetings, enter the church on the 37th Street Side, the brown door next to the parking lot. Please note: These meetings are for adults only. No children or anyone under the age of 18 may participate.
