About Life Changing Ministries Inc. in Milwaukee, Wisconsin 

History

Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services was founded by Robert Harris, who wanted to help youths, individuals, and families overcome the many obstacles that prevent them from achieving their dreams and goals.


The staff has more than 30 years of combined experience in Social Services and Spiritual Guidance, working with youths, individuals, and families in the community who have suffered from drugs, alcohol and mental health issues. The Clinical Director and Ministers possess knowledge in fields related to providing the necessary array of services related to this population of youth, individuals and families.


Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to help individuals through a Spiritual Awakening. Target clients include adults, youths, and families who are struggling with alcohol and other drugs, education, mental health issues, and other issues that place them at risk of failing in life.


Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services is committed to the treatment of Substance Abuse that provides a holistic treatment approach that encompasses client’s environmental, physiological, psychological, and social aspects, while addressing ethic and cultural values.


We are firm in the belief of the clinical and Spiritual approach, and we are prepared for the dysfunctional aspects of the disease and Spiritual Illiteracy, including the displacement of persons who once rose from the rubbish of poverty, only to return by the hand of the Substance Abuse/Mental Health Illness and Spiritual Attacks.


Our Clinical and Spiritual Services recognize that no one course of treatment is going to be appropriate for all clients and that specific social and cultural differences will necessitate the availability of various treatment modalities.


Although many issues that will be resolved during treatment may be psychological in nature, it is necessary that clients be given a holistic and culturally sensitive environment that will encourage self-esteem, cultural worth, improved coping mechanisms, and problem-solving skills through a Spiritual Awakening.


Since Substance Abuse/Addiction can create medically related problems, an interdisciplinary approach is used to address the complex physical and psychological problems under the direction and leadership of the medical staff. In order for treatment to be most effective, the process must involve the whole individual and address those issues that clearly affect his/her well-being.


Therefore, Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services makes available services specifically directed at the individual’s medical, psychological, social, vocational, legal, and spiritual needs.


An important aspect of the treatment process is the involvement of the family. These involvements are vital and critical for a complete picture of the affected member and to the provision of appropriate intervention and are to arrest the pattern of abuse or dependence and enable the client to begin the long process of recovery in a supportive environment.


All as a part of the recovery process that will anchor a client to the commitment to lifestyle change and reconstruction.

Mission Philosophy

Our Mission: The Mission of Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services is to assist individuals, youth, adults, and families with making choices that will determine the course of their lives and assist them to become stronger, independent, and empowered people to make decisions about the quality of life they seek or desire to have.


Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services is to provide comprehensive, direct Spiritual Guidance and culturally specific, community-based services to clients regardless of their race, creed, national origin, or religion. Services are designed to assist the client in problem resolution.


This includes helping the client to acknowledge, learn about, and develop positive Spiritual coping mechanisms with respect to addressing their problems, to gain the skills and support needed to function independently in the community; take responsibility for directing their own lives and be a positive functioning member of the community.


Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services is committed to the treatment of Substance Abuse/addiction and family dysfunction among all ethnic groups.


Life Changing Ministries Substance Abuse Outpatient Services recognizes the disease and spiritual illiteracy entity of Substance Abuse addiction coupled with the violence and poverty of today’s lifestyles, be it in the inner city and/or the suburbs only, compounds the problems faced by many youths and families and perpetuates the compulsive and dysfunctional use of mood- and mind-altering substances.


The dysfunctional aspects of the disease include psychological dependence, pharmacological tolerance to substances, physical dependence, pathological changes in various organ functions, and the deterioration of the family/social life, work/school performance, and other forms of maladaptive behavior, but most importantly, Spiritual Death.
