Is it possible to kick the stubborn habit and change your life? Is it really possible to ditch the drugs, pornography and alcohol?  The answer is: YES.  It can be done. There is real, genuine freedom to be found from your addictions. You can live a life apart from your addictions.


At the Reformer's Unanimous Addictions Program, we're not interested in helping you manage the symptoms of your addiction. Our desire is to deal with the root cause of the issue and give you complete and total freedom from the dependency and cravings of your problem.


This is not a Twelve-Step Program. This is a faith-based, Christ-centered Addictions Program.We use time-tested Biblical principles to guide you to freedom and give you a new life apart from your addicions.If you've tried everything else; if you've failed to quit dozens of times in the past, we can help you. 


Our local chapter meets Friday evenings at the Bloomington Baptist Church. There will be testimonies of victory, small-group counseling and explanations from God's Word about how to kick our stubborn habits.
