LAKE DISINGER

Garrett and Ada lost their middle son, Lake, tragically on October 30, 2021 to fentanyl poisoning. Following Lake's death, Ada and Garrett were called to start a teen recovery ministry, “For lake’s Sake,” bringing fentanyl and other drug awareness to the community through rallies, outreach, media, and cooperation with other organizations. Garrett & Ada have worked with Time to Revive, Discipleship and Equipping Ministry, Mining the Truth, Freedom Ministry, Inspiration Ministries, and Recovery Ministry. 

RECOGNITION

SafeHaven believes in recognition in two forms. The first is bringing recognition to the world that people suffer from trials of all sorts, and each one is valid and should be honored. The second is that we ourselves must recognize our own trials, no matter how big or small they may seem, and then be willing to work towards changing the things that have a negative impact on our lives.

RESOURCES

SafeHaven is here to help provide or find you the resources needed to facilitate your recovery with the highest level of success. Resources vary greatly to include: coaching, community outreach, inpatient and outpatient treatment programs, harm reduction plans and kits, Narcan, financial budgeting and planning, counseling, peer group discussions, and many others.

RECOVERY

SafeHaven believes that recovery looks different for each person, and has many different stages. No one but the person in recovery has the right or the ability to judge ones recovery, and we operate under the premise that "you are in recovery when you say you are." Our mission is to walk alongside you, and help you reach the greatest level of success in your recovery journey.

Safehaven Freedom Ministries exists to deliver recognition, resources and recovery by mentoring teens, young adults and veterans who want their freedom and faith restored. We believe that everyone is recovering whether that be from addictions, forgiveness, pain, trauma, PTSD, and more. We are here to help facilitate that recovery by offering guidance, resources, connections, and more.
