To free out nation from the methamphetamine epidemic by means of community-action prevention and education. Drug prevention education is critical to the addiction recovery process. This is why LFM works so hard to educate offenders, inmates, and their families both before and after an addiction. With programs like the Meth Free Project, LFM is making a way for Recovery.
Meth Free Project: The High is a Lie
The Meth Free Project: The High is a Lie is an outreach of Leland Family Ministries (LFM) and consists of both the monthly court-ordered class and the jail program.
Court Ordered Class
Based on a special condition of probation, offenders are ordered to attend LFM's Meth Free project education class for the purpose of deterring illicit drug use and associated activities through education and person experiences. The class occurs monthly, typically lasting 2 hours and includes a 40-minute educational DVD and an impact panel speaker. Research shows the horrific consequences of meth resonate strongly with potential users in addition to those already entangled in it.
The jail program is made up of two parts. Phase I: The Meth Free Project; and Phase II: Recovery for Life. Phase I is a voluntary, four week class in which inmates are educated about the science, consequences and intervention of Meth. Once Phase I is completed, inmates have the opportunity to sign up for Phase II, the 12 step Recovery for Life program. See our Recovery Brochure to learn more about it. Once released from jail, attendees have the opportunity to continue the program by plugging into a Recovery for Life group in their community.
