When most people hear the word addiction, they think of dependence on a substance, such as drugs or alcohol and for a good reason: According to the U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), in 2014 an estimated 21.5 million Americans aged 12 years or older have a significant problem with alcohol or drugs.
But alcohol, uppers, downers, and other commonly abused substances aren't the only things Americans abuse or think they're addicted to. In fact, just substitute the word "behavior" for "substance," and you open up the definition of addiction to all kinds of dependencies, some of which may surprise you. Whether it's sex, the Internet, or bungee jumping, the desire to experience a "high" becomes so strong that the so-called addict loses control and seeks the activity despite all negative consequences.
Lift Steps to Victory is a Non-denominational Christ-centered, faith-based program for those who are suffering from drug and alcohol addiction or mental health disorders.
Our assignment is to help people who connect with LIFT reach sobriety and maintain it for life.
We offer a comprehensive Christian based dual diagnosis program because up to 50% of addicts also suffer from mental illness. Our objective is to see people go through a healing process — from kicking physical addiction to filling the spiritual void.
We believe through using the power of prayer, therapeutic workshops, Christ -centered fellowship, offering church services and evidence- based treatment practices, to one-on -one assessments our volunteer professionals help you to reconcile and restore broken relationships and reclaim your inner strength and dignity through a renewed faith in Jesus.

According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, people begin taking drugs for a variety of reasons, including:
to feel good — feeling of pleasure, “high”
to feel better — e.g., relieve stress
to do better — improve performance
curiosity and peer pressure
People with addictive disorders may be aware of their problem, but are unable to stop it even if they wanted to. The addiction may cause health problems as well as problems at work and with family members and friends. The misuse of drugs and alcohol is the leading cause of preventable illnesses and premature death.
