Addiction and The Church Seminar

Posted by on Jul 11, 2024 in Featured, News & Events | 0 comments

Jesus came to set the captives free, and we know that the church is called to be His hands and feet to help do just that.

When the church puts faith into action to embrace those with substance abuse disorders and those coming out of incarceration, it makes a significant impact.

Join Heartland Recovery, for this 1-day informational seminar on September 20, 2024. Our format is designed to provide church leaders with the knowledge and tools they need to help their congregation effectively identify, support, and welcome these individuals impacted by addiction and incarceration.

Click here to register online, or phone 573-633-5603 before 9/6/2024. The event is free, but your donation to offset costs is welcome.

Speakers for the event have a broad range of experience in areas which include licensed counseling, prison ministry, recovery programs and support groups, higher education, leading churches and outreach ministries, and more. Visit our Facebook page for details and updates.

Walking Through Recovery | Scott’s Story

Posted by on Jul 9, 2024 in News & Events | 0 comments

A year ago, Scott visited his family at Christmas for what he thought would be the last time, feeling hopeless and planning to immediately leave to get more drugs. Scott had been caught in a vicious cycle of addiction, prison, treatment, and relapse. Before he could leave that Christmas his family staged an intervention. This was a turning point for him, and by the grace of God, he decided to change.

He committed to coming to Heartland Recovery, a long term program where a relationship with Jesus is the cornerstone to recovery. Though reading the Bible, praying, and building a relationship with Jesus Christ. Scott was transformed and he found hope. “Don’t give up, there is hope.” Scott says. “I’m a proven fact that Jesus is the answer.”

Many like Scott are caught in cycles of hopelessness, Heartland is here to help. We’ve removed one of the biggest roadblocks to taking that next step toward freedom—the cost of treatment—thanks to the generosity of donors who fully fund Heartland Recovery programs for men and women wanting to change. Call today.
