Steps to Freedom


Mission:  To provide emotional and spiritual support to both the addict, family and/or friends of addicts who are involved with or have been affected in some ways with problems associated with alcohol, prescription pain drugs or illegal street drugs.

Vision:  To operate transitional living facilities to act as a Half-Way House and Three Quarter House to house those who have gone through detox and rehabilitation for substance abuse.

Purpose:  Our purpose is to provide education and resource referrals to individuals, families and/or friends of those suffering from addictions.  No one has to suffer in silence or alone.  Our motto is "One Life At A Time."

On October 7, 2010, weekly separate support group meetings for the addict and family members or friends of addicts will start for anyone suffering an addiction to alcohol, pain prescription or illegal street drugs.  These meetings will be held at First Macedonia Missionary Baptist Church in the Fellowship Hall located at 411 E. Charlotte Avenue ~ Punta Gorda, FL 33950 promptly starting at 7:00pm through 8:00pm.

If you have any questions about either of these support programs, please contact Cheryl LaVecchio at (941) 204-7359.

Living Free, a Turning Point Ministry Program

The goal for this program is to reach out to people facing life-controlling problems, hurts and the everyday challenges of life that can become overwhelming.  The Bible studies are specifically designed to help group members bring things out into the open and deal honestly with real-life problems.  This ministry can bring together the Word of God, Spirit of God and the people of God to help others break free from and remain free of life-controlling problems.

We are currently in training for the small groups that will be available to participate in the early part of 2011.  Please check back here frequently for current updates.

Questions to Ask Yourself

  • Does your heart go out to people who can't seem to break free from a damaging behavior, relationship or substance?
  • Are you struggling with a particular issue or problem that hinders your walk with God?
  • Does someone you love have a life-controlling problem?
  • Would you like to become a small group facilitator where there is caring, accountability and confidentiality?

If you can answer YES to any one of these questions, then LIVING FREE is right for you!  Please contact (941) 637-7907 if you have any questions concerning this program.  Please leave a message and someone will return your call as soon as possible.
