Mission Statement and Purpose of Addiction Overcome, Inc.

…That the creation itself will be liberated from its bondage to decay and brought into the glorious FREEDOM of the children of God.

(Romans 8:21, NIV)

What is Addiction Overcome, Inc.?

Addiction Overcome, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization. We are a faith-based outreach whose goal is to offer hope to the still-suffering yet hopeful addict. Addiction Overcome, Inc. seeks to reunite and restore families touched by addiction and provide resources aimed at keeping the former addict in a recovery mode.

Addiction Overcome, Inc. also provides educational outreach to churches, schools, civic groups, and any company or organization interested in learning the facts about drug addiction and how it is literally killing families. Drug abuse and addiction is a growing problem, and is hurting communities and persons from all walks of life.

Judith Ann Hillard, President of Addiction Overcome, Inc. is available to speak to community groups, schools, churches, etc., sharing with them her true story of addiction overcome. She is a vibrant and dynamic speaker who, by the grace of God and the assistance of a loving, faithful family, has broken free from cocaine addiction.

How Addiction Overcome, Inc. Helps Families

Addiction Overcome, Inc. is directly involved in shuttling the children of addicted parents, to and from drug rehabilitation facilities on visitor days. Addiction Overcome, Inc. will also provide gifts of basic necessities and non-perishable foods (socks, toothbrushes, granola bars, etc.) to the families of those who are actively and successfully working through a drug rehabilitation program.

Judith Ann Hillard and Lauren Beyenhof are currently writing a book that will help families recognize when their teen is in trouble, and how to seek appropriate help. The working title of the book is Not MY Kid: The Myth of the Drug-Free Home.

Without God, we can do nothing. Addiction Overcome, Inc. strives to address the spiritual needs of addicts by connecting them with a local church. Volunteers working with Addiction Overcome, Inc. are available to pray with the families who are touched by drug addiction. Families can also avail themselves of a prayer and support hotline. All families that are being helped by Addiction Overcome, Inc. will be given an opportunity to hear about Jesus Christ, and how he has made it possible to break free from the bondage of addiction.
