Please contact us with questions and to schedule an appointment.

The disease and stigma of addiction can lead to isolation, festering resentments, and escalating conflict. Our layperson counseling service is offered to individuals, couples, families and friends, to cope with the impact of addiction and the complications associated with it. We will listen, teach, coach, pray, and provide resources, so that you can navigate better in the following areas.

  • Addiction
  • Communication
  • Crisis and Trauma
  • Faith and Spiritual Progress
  • Marriage and Family Dynamics
  • Self-Awareness and Self-Care
  • Codependency and Enabling
  • Conflict
  • Divorce or Separation
  • Grief and Loss
  • Parenting
  • Stress


Mission Addiction is a non-profit, Ohio corporation. Our work is accomplished through faith-based volunteers who have received training from SouthBrook Christian Church and Mission Addiction in the areas outlined above. Although some volunteers may independently hold professional qualifications, Mission Addiction does not represent that any individuals providing lay counseling and coaching services hold any type of professional licensure or operate other than in a volunteer capacity. However, we do offer referral services to professional counselors and programs for those seeking licensed, professional counseling services.


Mission Addiction respects the confidentiality of information shared with us in the counseling and coaching process. We will use such information only to provide these counseling and coaching services to the client and will not share such information outside our organization without consent. With client approval, information may be shared with the client’s loved ones (including by way of joint counseling services) for better awareness, support and results.

Fees: All lay person counseling and coaching services are provided on a charitable basis, free of charge. However, if you wish to support the mission and work of Mission Addiction, we will gratefully accept donations for our nonprofit organization to serve others in our mission

“Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact, you are doing.”
