About Lifeline-connect:
Founded in 2007, Lifeline-connect is a 12-month faith-based, residential recovery center of six men at a time focusing on whole-life treatment for substance abuse recovery. Having been in operation for almost 12 years, Lifeline-connect provides a healthy and stable environment where men are able to focus on their recovery and receive the support and training they need. In addition to recovery, the graduates have learned life skills and are transitioned back with their families and into the workplace. You can learn more at www.lifelineconnect.org.
