Hometown Heroes – Christopher Knapp – Total Freedom – 10/24/23

Hometown Heroes” from Family Life

Helping people breaking the chains of addiction is the aim of a western New York ministry.    

The man running that ministry has seen both sides of the consequences of drug use.

One-time addict Christopher Knapp is now director of Total Freedom in Darien Center. Total Freedom offers a long-term, residential approach that seeks to treat the whole person, to break the addiction cycle and then keep them free of it – all with the framework of Biblical principles:

Yes, there are immediate results that begin in the short-term. Knapp though emphasizes that their long-term, residential approach to the problem gives those struggling something that may have proven elusive until they arrived: time.

Total Freedom describes its mission as “helping people overcome addictions and destructive lifestyles.” Their emphasis is not to be a rehab program but a process toward a complete lifestyle change — under the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

More information, videos, and an application are available from their website.
