• What is Living Free Recovery

    We provide hope, help, and healing to Individuals, Churches, and Communities

    Ministry To Communities

    Outreach strategy to impact the entire community

    A small group strategy for impacting the entire community by assisting other churches and individuals in the community in ministering to people with life controlling problems. This often starts with individuals in the legal system and their families that live in the community. And since life controlling problems impact more than just one individual or one family, there is a great need for ministry to the entire community. For information on how to minister to your community or to schedule a training at your church please email us at: info@connectionpoints.org. or call 260.209.4596.

    Ministry To Churches

    Workshops and Seminars

    Workshops available on: Assimilation, Discipleship, Leadership, Small Groups, and how to help people with Life Controlling Probems.

    For information on each of these workshops or to schedule a workshop in your church please email us at: info@connectionpoints.org. or call 260.209.4596.

    Ministry To Individuals

    Non-residential groups and individual counseling

    Living Free is a group strategy that has helped over 800,000 people learn to face life's struggles and move toward freedom and wholeness in Christ. At church and work, people are smiling outside but hurting on the inside. They keep up appearances, but something has its hooks in them and threatens to take them under: Addiction, Depression, Anxiety, Anger, Broken Relationships, Care giving Responsibilities,Eating Disorders, Money Problems, Compulsive Sex, or some other life controlling problems.

     

    See how this group strategy works, hear some powerful stories of changed lives, and check out proven resources and tools.

  • NEW PROGRAMS

    Living Free Recovery is pleased to announce two more evidence based programs that can assist peopel with

    "life controlling problems."

    MRT- Moral Reconation Therapy

    Helping people make better decisions!

    MRT is utilized by: criminal justice agencies, behavioral health agencies, substance abuse treatment agencies, community treatment providers, hospitals, and other treatment professionals, both in the United States and internationally. Departments of correction, jails, probation, parole,Drug courts, DUI courts, mental health courts, veteran courts, juvenile courts, wellness courts, among other problem-solving courts, Mental Health And Addiction Providers, Public & Private Community Behavioral Health Agencies and Substance Abuse Providers.

     

    MRT fosters moral development in treatment-resistant clients through education, group and individual counseling, and structured exercises.

     

    Moral reasoning is how people make decisions about what they should or should not do in a given situation. If judgments about right and wrong are made from low levels of moral reasoning, then counseling, job-skills training, and punishment will have little long-lasting impact on behavior.

     

    Offenders must be confronted with the consequences of their behavior and the effects it has on their family, friends, and community. MRT addresses beliefs and reasoning. It is designed to alter how clients think and make judgments about what is right and wrong.

     

    For more than 30 years, individuals have received the benefits of MRT treatment programming in settings ranging from small to large agencies, including behavioral health providers, substance use disorder programs, hospitals, and criminal justice settings, among a variety of other settings

    Theft Intervention Program

    Something For Nothing (Based on MRT)

    Something for Nothing is an 8-hour educational class/group for entry-level shop lifters. Something for Nothing curriculum is designed to both share information about shoplifting and related crimes and stimulate higher level thinking skills to correct behaviors. The scope of the group’s process includes lecture, group discussion, videos, and many group activities. Something for Nothing facilitators help determine how much study and research clients have put into the topic and encourage clients to determine consequences and personal assessments. Lunch is included in the registration fee.

    DRUG INTERVENTIONIST

    The ministry of Selepri Amachre

    Selepri Amachree is an interventionist and Christian recording artist.

     

    12 years of cocaine/crack & Opiates addiction had taken its toll on his life. After 2 trips to prison in Illinois, Selepri found himself detained in federal custody facing deportation from the United States for drug charges that he had served prison time for. “Jesus met me right where I was” he shares in his testimony, “He said I had a Hope and a Future”. After graduating from Teen Challenge (An Adult & Teen rehabilitation center) in August of 2002. Selepri went on to take an administrative position with Youth Challenge in Virginia.

     

    For the last 8 years Selepri has been travelling around the country sharing his story and intervening in the lives of addicts for the Xtreme Intervention Project, a ministry he founded and directs!!

     

    Selepri has been interviewed on the Christian Television Network and His story was published (twice) nationwide in the Pentecostal Evangel Magazine. Selepri says, “I haven’t gotten to where I am because of the MANY I’VE LED out of darkness, but because of the ONE I’VE FOLLOWED into the Light”.

     

    Selepri and Living Free Recovery will assist the TRANSFORMATION CENTER of Indiana by helping individuals our of their addiction and helping families to understand their role in recovery. The ultimate goal of intervention is hope, help, and healing to individuals and families.

     

    If you know of someone with an addiction and needs help to get through it contact Living Free Recovery and ask for The Interventionist!

    Transformation Center will assist people in dealing with their life controlling problems such as: Substance Abuse, Anger, Relationships, Grief & Loss by providing an effective residential program.

    OUR MISSION is serving the community by partnering with them to bring, hope, help, and healing in order to provide a healthy future to individuals dealing with life controlling problems.

  • INTERVENTIONIST

    Do you have a friend or family member that needs help and does not know it....

    Get in Touch with Selepri!

    Complete the following and Selepri will get in touch with you.

    The voicemail ended with a mother’s heart-wrenching plea, “I want to save my son.”

    That is often how it starts for Selepri Amachree. He gets heart-breaking calls weekly from family members or friends who don’t know where to turn for help as they watch someone slide deeper into addiction. They call Amachree because they have heard success stories from the Xtreme Intervention Project. Xtreme Intervention Project is Amachree’s faith-based program to help people with addiction. It is a program he has developed himself that has grown through word-of-mouth. The curriculum developed by Amachree is based on the relationships he builds with the individuals he helps. He said he doesn’t use a “cookie-cutter” approach.

    After he is contacted by someone seeking help (usually for a family member or friend), he meets with those seeking help and determines if he can help and what the best approach would be. Amachree looks for sponsors to cover the costs of the intervention. That could include travel expenses and costs of enrollment in a treatment program. The next step is to meet with the student. Sometimes those encounters can be dramatic. The person may not know who Amachree is or why he is making contact. Building a relationship is important, Amachree said there is an emotional investment. He can often rely on his own experiences to help build connections. Amachree was an addict for a decade and was incarcerated. That can help him bridge credibility gaps.

    Amachree went through the Teen Challenge program and then graduated from the Teen Challenge Leadership Institute and the David Wilkerson Training Center. He earned training and certifications in counseling through those programs as well as the University of Phoenix. He eventually became the administrative director of the Youth Challenge Center in Newport News, Virginia. He said God has guided him to his current place in life.

    One woman asked him to help her son and Amachree was moved by her story. It became the first person he helped and led to the career he has now which focuses on helping people on a one-to-one basis with the curriculum he developed. He said Xtreme Intervention students get to know him, get to know themselves, get to know their problem and get to know the solution.

    He typically gets the person enrolled in a treatment program away from the place they developed an addiction, because Amachree said the person’s addictive behavior is often closely associated with a location. After 10 years of running Xtreme Intervention, Amachree has a wide network. He has worked with police agencies and courts, treatment programs, counselors, attorneys, churches and families throughout the United States. He has references from a wide variety of people both in and out of Wisconsin. Because his program is relationship based, he has stayed in touch with some of his students and many also work as counselors or volunteers in treatment programs. Amachree urges people to “reach out for help.” He said people with addiction and their families can’t overcome the problems on their own. “The closer you are to the individual, the harder it’s going to be,” he said. He said people shouldn’t take addictive behavior personally and should talk about what is possible instead of what is wrong.
