You’re In The Right Place!
The fight against addiction can be overwhelming. We want to gain as many allies in this battle as possible.
At the same time, TAC stands upon the wise counsel of God as provided in His Word and will not compromise the truths of Scripture because we seek to glorify God by being faithful to His Word.
Psalm 33:10-12 reminds us:
The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nothing; he frustrates the plans of the peoples. The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the plans of his heart to all generations. Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people whom he has chosen as his heritage! (ESV)
Because we love the Lord, the addicted, and their loved ones, we share the true message of hope through repentance and faith in Christ. Christ forgives and then empowers the addicted and their loved ones to graciously transform into the likeness of Christ. By transformation, we mean both the immediate work of salvation as well as the gradual continual work of sanctification thereafter.
Christ also comforts the suffering, which includes the addicted and their loved ones. Our mission is to manifest His love to all persons. One of the primary ways we work to accomplish that mission is by providing training courses and other resources to help Christ’s church take care of His flock.

Host a Group Study for Families of Addicts!
As biblical counselors in addiction counseling, we often prioritize helping the addict seek treatment. Sometimes we can forget about those who have been most affected by the addict’s choices – his own family and near ones. Family members of addicts are struggling, too; And we believe the best way to help them is through a small-group bible study, hosted by YOU, at your ministry or church!
This Group Study aims to offer biblical help and genuine hope to family members of addicts in a teaching-and-small-group format that includes weekly video lessons, discussion questions, and homework so that everyone involved draws closer to Christ.
This course provides 12 weeks of digital resources and a leader’s guide so that you are well prepared to comfort, encourage, walk alongside, and speak hope into the lives of the families near you.
