Living Free Recovery Services


The Basics

Established in the Brooklyn Park neighborhood of Minneapolis in 1993 by Chris Callison, a pastor and CADC, Living Free Recovery Services offers Christian faith-based outpatient substance abuse and addiction treatment for clients who are 18 and older. As a part of the Living Word Church, the rehab believes that the development of a loving relationship with Christ helps achieve long-term abstinence.

Treatment and Staff

Prior to admission, a roughly hour long in-person substance abuse assessment is conducted. In cases where the client allows it, counselors also speak with family members. Based on the evaluation, individualized treatment plans are created. Those with co-occurring disorders are provided referrals to outside mental health facilities. Detox is not provided. While the rehab does not have an adolescent outpatient program, assessments are provided for teenage alcoholics and addicts. Referrals are then made to outside facilities.

Outpatient treatment length is typically 30 sessions, or 10 weeks. The program includes group therapy from 6 to 9 pm three evenings a week. Individual therapy is scheduled as needed. Counselors combine a faith-based approach, with evidence-based practice, specifically CBT. Group topics include relapse prevention, forgiveness, coping skills and faith. The Bible is used as an informational tool and clients are encouraged to develop a relationship with God and pray while addressing substance abuse issues. Specific sections of scripture are disused in the context of addressing addiction and recovery. In addition, clients are assigned homework. Groups average about 10 clients per session. The rehab provides an open Celebrate Recovery meeting from 6 to 9 pm on Wednesdays and clients and loved ones are encouraged to attend.

Staff includes 12 CADCs with strong Christian backgrounds. Out of pocket cost is $120 per session.


A faith-based relapse treatment program is offered for those who suffer from constant lapses in sobriety. The 12-week program includes three weekly group sessions from 6 to 9 pm.

Living Free Recovery Services offers quarterly prayer meetings and a family program. Topics include substance abuse and codependency. Function Junction, offered quarterly, is a Friday evening outing for families and clients.

In Summary

For those in need of a more traditional approach, detox and some other more traditional rehab elements, Living Free might not be suitable. But for clients seeking a flexible, Christian-based approach to recovery, it could be the perfect fit.
