Lifeline Group Support


Lifeline is a non-residential community-based effort to address the coping skills people use as they journey through those storms. Lifeline uses bible based curriculums in a confidential, caring atmosphere to train individuals to live free from problems that master their lives and keep them functioning normally within their own family and community.   Eastern Appalachian Teen Challenge staff are Lifeline certified and offer Lifeline training classes on an ongoing basis throughout the year.  We also offer training for those who wish to facilitate and conduct group support programs to members of their church or community.

Life controlling issues usually fall into three main categories:

  • Substance~drugs, alcohol and prescription medication
  • Behavior~gambling, pornography, ect…
  • Relationships~codependency, unhealthy relationships
