In addition to the regular scheduled classes and one-on-one counseling, the “Uncovering Drugs Hidden Secrets” seminar is offered to small groups and local churches. This adults only program reveals hidden secrets about drugs. It demonstrates to pastors, parents, and more how to recognize drugs and paraphernalia and shows how our children are being influenced by the drug culture.

In addressing these issues for the sin that they are, this biblical instructional format shows addicts the only way to break free and shows their loved ones how to help. “Freedom is not found in a program, it is found in a person and His name is JESUS.” Secular programs do not work because lives are not being transformed, and God is the only source of this true transformation.

The Bible tells us that we will become a new creature when we are saved (2 Corinthians 5:17). The Holy Spirit will work through believers to change their desires, He will give us the tools we need to live, and He will guide us in the direction we go. As believers, we have to be honest with where we are at in our walk and not allow the devil’s lies to lead us astray. The Light has shined upon us and revealed everything in our lives. There should be no reason to hide in the darkness any longer (John 3:19).

To remain free from the bondage of any addiction, vigilance is a must. As children of God, we are called to follow the Lord and help those around us. If you are an addict, God is calling for you to come to Him. It doesn’t have to be drugs or alcohol. Some are addicted to wealth, to porn, or to a host of other things that take them away from serving their Creator. Wisdom in Living Life is just one ministry there with open arms. If you have friends or family caught in addiction, God is calling for you to take His yoke upon you (Matthew 11:28-29). No situation, addiction, or sin is too big for Jesus Christ.

Sin does not only affect the sinner. Addictions are costing families, individuals, and communities an unheard of price. The local and federal government is being drained of resources to support and clean up after the devastations of drug and alcohol addiction. People are dying, children are being mentally damaged for life, and families are being destroyed. “This month in Greenville: 180,000 will abuse drugs. This week in Greenville: 1,415 teens will ride in an automobile with an intoxicated driver. Today in Greenville: 165 people will be arrested for a substance abuse problem.”

Wisdom in Living Life is not just another rehabilitation program teaching addicts how to not do drugs or to not drink alcohol. This ministry is teaching addicts how to live for the Lord and in turn shows them how drugs and alcohol cannot be part of their lives. God is still alive!

Support for Wisdom in Living Life continues to come from law enforcement, government officials, businesses, and churches. Working with local judges, the ministry is also seeking to establish Wisdom in Living Life as an alternative to Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous meetings.

How can we help? Prayer is an often overlooked but necessary assistance to any ministry. Volunteers are also needed to assist in various functions. No ministry is without cost, and Wisdom in Living Life is always in need of monetary donations and some supplies. These can be made through their website and even through the United Way. All donations are tax deductible, as the program is non-profit. A list of needed supplies (such as paper, coffee, cups, etc.) can be found at www.wisdominlivinglife.com/get-involved/our-wish-list/.

Winn Freeman, lovingly known as “The Anti-Drug Guy”, welcomes all who will come. If you or someone you know needs help, more information can be found by calling 864-271-HELP (4357) / 864-834-9800 or e-mailing info@wisdominlivinglife.org. Wisdom in Living Life’s training facility can also be visited at 12408-A White Horse Road, Travelers Rest, SC 29690. Please check their calendar online for specific times and dates of meetings.
