So many people feel helpless when they encounter someone with addictions and destructive behaviors. The When You Are Ready Campaign is designed to provide the community with resources to prevent drug overdose and connect individuals to treatment.

We're Here For You
When You Are Ready BR is an outreach of the Set Free Indeed Ministry. For the past 25 years, Set Free Indeed has provided support and resources to individuals and families seeking treatment and recovery services. We work with area providers and service organizations who offer services and support to people in need, including peer support and recovery programs. We promote spaces of healing and trauma in-formed training to help individuals and families suffering from addiction receive resources to a path of recovery.
Awareness is the first step in combating this crisis. Together, we can improve the lives of those in need right here in Baton Rouge.
