We offer help and hope for the addicted and their loved ones.

Alcoholism or drug dependency is a primary disease that is chronic, progressive, and potentially fatal if not treated. It creates immense physical, psychological, and spiritual problems for the individual and for their families. All family members are affected by the disease—not just the person who is addicted. Everyone experiences emotional pain, yet each person feels alone, unable to reach out for help.

The mission of  the TLC Addiction Awareness ministry team is to provide resources for the purpose of prevention and treatment of addictive behavior and substance abuse. Please do not hesitate to contact TLC with your concerns.
