The Freedom Dream Center is a 12 month live in addiction recovery facility, in Aurora Missouri. Where addiction recovery is focused on discipleship in Jesus Christ.
America has turned a blind eye to addiction. One must wonder why so many people continue to walk into walls when a proven path of recovery has been shown possible. Criminal justice approaches are ineffective; they have become prohibitively expensive and they often make matters worse, when 71% of prisoners, return back to prison within 3 years of being released. There has got to be a better option! In fact, there is; at the Freedom Dream Center where we have been putting to practice a Jesus Christ centered addiction recovery program since 2005. The major increase in prescription abuse came around the 1990s with doctors loosely prescribing opioids for chronic pain. In some states the number of opioid prescriptions written each year now exceeds the number of people. That oversupply feeds the black market: last year 11m Americans used illicitly-acquired prescription painkillers, more than the number who used cocaine, ecstasy, methamphetamine and LSD combined. What the common American seems to assume is that opioids prescribed by doctors are safe. In the Freedom Dream Center in Aurora, Missouri we have discovered that modern medical and psychological programs are a band-aid style approach to addiction recovery. Without adhering to the principles of a Jesus Christ centered life and focusing on spiritual recovery, you will continue to battle the physical part of addiction your entire life. Jesus Christ is an unbreakable foundation of sobriety where you no longer have to battle everyday not to pick up the bottle, syringe, or pipe. Instead you can experience real freedom and deliverance from a life of fighting addiction.
