Maybe she is your daughter, your sister, your mother, a cousin or other close family member. Maybe she was a co-worker. Maybe she was your neighbor. But you watched with sadness as she suffered the devastating physical and psychological harms that crystal meth produces. She became isolated and suspicious of everyone, and you quickly learned that you could not trust her being around you or your family any longer. Then she disappeared from sight.
Maybe you struggled with meth yourself. You first tried it to lose weight or boost your energy, but before long it was as though you were staring into the face of the devil. The drug took total control over you, and you became paranoid about everyone. But no one wanted to be around you anymore anyway. You lost your job, your home, your friends. You may have even lost custody of your children.
If this was someone you knew, maybe she was lucky enough to get into rehab, or perhaps she went to jail. She was able to get sober there, and you were hopeful that all of her problems were over. But before you knew it, she was back to using crystal meth as though she had never stopped.
If this was you, you quickly learned that people did not really trust you. You did not know how to get a job, rent an apartment or even find transportation. All of these skills were lost when you were being consumed by your use of meth. And you soon discovered that there was nowhere to turn for help. You felt isolated and all alone. So you went back to the life that you knew. You started using crystal meth again!
The mission of Loving Solutions is to provide a safe Christ-centered environment where women recovering from methamphetamines can live and learn necessary life skills through discipleship, counseling, advocacy and personal care assistance.
But Loving Solutions is much more than just a home - it is a ministry. The women will join a family and live like a family and be treated as members of a family. Loving Solutions is the beginning of a new way of living - living though the Love of Jesus Christ.
Loving Solutions is provided at a low cost to the ladies we serve or their families. We exist so that our guests can focus on the healing love of Jesus, and on themselves.
The home is furnished and we are ready. We have stepped out in faith by purchasing the home and property for Loving Solutions, and through the help of many good people in our community, the home is furnished. We have absolute Faith that God will continue to provide - in His time - that He will touch the hearts of many more who will help us - to help us make our dream a reality.
Loving Solutions is a Christ-centered community in the Shreveport area serving women healing from the effects of crystal meth. Once a woman, aged 18 or above, has completed therapy and is drug free, Loving Solutions provides a safe and loving environment where she can learn the life skills that she needs to live drug free.
