Help for the Hurting–Drug Abuse


You’re Not Alone
In 1999 the “You’re Not Alone” ministry was started for pastors, missionaries and Christian workers whose kids abuse drugs or alcohol. It began as a conference ministry. By 2003, the focus expanded to include Christian families and weekend ministry in churches. Our mission is clear: “You’re Not Alone” is a confidential resource for parents of kids who abuse drugs or alcohol.
