In the nearly twenty years of L.I.F.E. Recovery International’s work with individuals recovering from compulsive and addictive behaviors, we have helped countless men and women begin their healing by referring them to intensive workshops throughout the country. We have witnessed the amazing results of these experiences, and the “jump-start” to the recovery process that they provide. So it is with great conviction and excitement that L.I.F.E. Recovery International is launching the Living in Freedom Intensive Workshop, a Biblically-based intensive.
About the Men’s Workshop
The Living in Freedom Intensive Workshop is a Bibliclly-based, weekend-long, twenty-hour debriefing of the addictive condition. We address in great depth the family systems and core wounds that lead to compulsive vulnerabilities, as well as the neurological foundations and intimacy struggles that perpetuate compulsive or addictive behaviors. Our objective is to help each participant understand how personal history and current dynamics contribute to the present condition, and how this understanding can inform a strategy for achieving a life of integrity. We will also guide each participant through the development of a recovery plan to follow upon return from the workshop.
The format of the workshop consists of a combination of instruction, writing exercises, small groups, and group activities. Participation is limited to twenty attendees or less in order to maximize the experience. Part of your time will be spent in small groups of no more than seven individuals. This time will allow you to process concepts more deeply and share on a more intimate level with other people.
Who Should Attend?
The workshop is specifically designed for those who are just beginning the recovery process, and for those who have been in and out of recovery and have yet to experience consistent success. Completion of the Living in Freedom Intensive Workshop provides the equivalent of over six months of weekly counseling.
All of our intensive leaders are authorities in the recovery field, serving as counselors or ordained ministers, who themselves have been through the recovery process.
The dates and times of the 2017 Living in Freedom Intensive Workshops are as follows:
April 28th – 30th

Location & Lodging
The L.I.F.E. Intensive workshops are held in Orlando, FL. All participants (including Orlando area residents) stay in a nearby hotel. Upon registration, L.I.F.E. Recovery International will provide each participant with a list of recommended hotels. It is the responsibility of each participant to secure their hotel reservation. Expenses for lodging and meals are not included in your workshop fee.
Please arrive to your hotel with only customary travel items (clothing, toiletries, etc.), a bible, and a journal. L.I.F.E. Recovery International will provide participants with pens and notebooks upon arrival at the workshop location. We encourage our participants to leave their technological devices such as laptops, tablets, and cell phones at home. In the event that a participant determines that traveling with one or more of these devices is an absolute necessity, L.I.F.E. workshop personnel will collect these items at the beginning of each day’s session, as these items are not permitted within the workshop setting.
Participants flying into Orlando should arrive no later than 4pm on Friday. This will allow you time to arrange transportation, grab a bite to eat, and get to the workshop site. The workshop ends at 3:30pm on Sunday, therefore we recommend scheduling your return flight to depart no earlier than 6 pm.
Registration & Fees
The Workshop fee is $795. The fee is reduced to $750 for participants who register and submit payment in full within three weeks of the scheduled beginning of the workshop for which they are registering. Health insurance does not cover the cost associated with the workshop.
Cancellations & Refunds
In the event of cancellation, if L.I.F.E. Recovery International receives notice of the cancellation within three weeks of the workshop for which the participant was registered, the non-refundable deposit may be applied as a one-time courtesy to a specific, future workshop at the request of the participant. Any amounts over $495 that were paid to L.I.F.E. Recovery International will be refunded, regardless of the time of the cancellation.
