Please take a few minutes to listen to some inspiring stories as told by Liberation Programs Recoverees

Minute for Mission

Liberation Programs welcomes the opportunity to speak to members of local congregations as part of our Minute for Mission initiative. For Liberation Programs this is about the mission of letting people know help is out there and that support and help will be there for individuals and their families throughout the life long journey of recovery. We know how important it is to be there for people in crisis who are struggling with substance abuse problems or who are members of a family where one of the family members is struggling and they don't know where to turn.

A Message to Our Friends

At Liberation Programs people are taking concrete steps towards leading happier, productive and substance-free lives. Women, who all too often have few treatment options, have turned to our Families in Recovery program to begin a new journey. Our team helps pave the way for people to rebuild their self-esteem, to learn to value their abilities and to make healthy decisions. Everyone deserves the opportunity for a fresh start; we provide the tangible support and services to improve their lives. Just as we work to empower mothers in our residential program, we are here for you, and we believe you, too, can achieve phenomenal success on your path to a better life.

As one of our community’s largest behavioral health providers, 
we help bring thousands of individuals and their families’ 
hopes and dreams to life!

Welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy learning more about how we help strengthen Fairfield County. If you like what you see, and you want to join our essential mission, please visit our Contact Us page to learn how you can make a difference or donate now.
