A.D.D.I.C.T. Ministries provides a unique approach to ministering to those adjusting to life outside of prison. Our ministry allows individuals to be released from prison into a disciplined, well-structured recovery program designed to support permanent life-changes, based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and the devotion to God and His Word. These individuals live as residents in our facility, Freedom House, while they go through our program. The program consists of a stringent and disciplined curriculum, including alcohol and drug counseling, family counseling, life-skills training, one-on-one mentoring, job training/placement, physical exercise and mental/emotional restoration. Government-certified GED prep course are also available to the residents. The program provides time for structured vocational and recreational involvement, which demonstrates the necessity for a well-balanced lifestyle for the residents. Our ministry facility maintains a secure environment with trained caregivers on site 24 hours a day/7 days a week.
All residents are placed on a Black-Out for the first 30 days when they come into Freedom House for the first time. This means there will be no phone calls, no visitation and no correspondence. This is to eliminate any outside distractions and help the resident adjust to the program. From then on, communication may be made via phone call by the resident. We have designated hours one day a week when residents may make phone calls. Visitation hours are also available. For more information regarding communication and visitation, please contact us at 903-316-4324
The facility of A.D.D.I.C.T. Ministries is a tobacco-free facility. We believe in cutting out ALL destructive habits immediately. We do not believe in replacing one drug with another. It is tough to quit “cold turkey”, but through our intensive support program and with God as their source of all strength, our residents have great success.
