You are not alone.  It’s not your fault. There is hope.

Just like addicts, loved-ones need: community, education and encouragement.

Through our meetings, you’ll find education, inspiration, and a community of other loved ones who’ve been impacted by addiction. Each week, you will have the opportunity to learn more about addiction, find tools to help those you love, and discover hope to help yourself as you journey down this road to recovery.

THEME VERSE: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” Romans 15:13 NIV

FInding Hope Testimonials

Kim Shelton

I first learned in Finding Hope that I needed my own recovery journey. The meetings, literature, and the retreat have all served to encourage me every step I take toward recovery. I have found a new way of relating, communicating, trusting, and living life. I am a grateful member.

Julie Thompson

Finding Hope was exactly what we were looking for in a support group. We knew that we needed to heal from our son’s addiction & being in a support group was essential. As Christians, clinging more than ever to Jesus for peace in the midst of our storm, we also knew that there was no true hope without Him. Finding Hope was the only logical solution that is a continual support to our family. We thank God for Finding Hope!

Randy & Robin Souter

When we walked into our first Finding Hope meeting, we felt at home. We knew we were with people who were walking the same road of addiction as we were. They “got it”! They all had experienced the same emotions as we were experiencing and knew this group would become our lifeline and family

The Finding Hope retreat is open to anyone who loves someone with a substance use disorder, whether they are in recovery or not.

Loving someone with a substance use disorder brings a mix of emotions and feelings, the journey feels incomprehensible. The Finding Hope retreat gives you the opportunity to travel this road in a safe & relaxed atmosphere with others who understand the ups and downs of loving someone addicted to drugs or alcohol. This is all done in a relaxed atmosphere with keynote speakers, breakout sessions, small group discussions, worship, and self-care. By facing our storms together we can begin to live in faith, truth, and hope no matter our circumstances.
