We are are here to help you on the road to recovery! Or if somebody you know is in active use, we offer resources and encouragement so you have the skills to love them, not enable them. Remember, anyone in the process of recovery and on the way to long-term recovery are learning new habits, and a new way of living. They need love and firm support.
What is an addiction? According to Webster's online dictionary, ad·dic·tion | \ ə-ˈdik-shən Full Definition of addiction 1: a compulsive, chronic, physiological or psychological need for a habit-forming substance, behavior, or activity having harmful physical, psychological, or social effects and typically causing well-defined symptoms (such as anxiety, irritability, tremors, or nausea) upon withdrawal or abstinence : the state of being addictedalcohol addictionan addiction to prescription painkillersdrug addictionsgambling addiction 2: a strong inclination to do, use, or indulge in something repeatedly. Examples of addiction in a Sentence He has a drug addiction. His life has been ruined by heroin addiction.
We can see from the above, addictions can come in all forms. It is a battle, but there is help! We realize the next few statements are almost out of place these days, but truth remains forever so we're going to state the best resources for long-term addiction recovery. First, we believe God is our main source for deliverance from addiction. Prayer, reading the Bible, surrendering to Jesus and His teachings are a few ways we can daily follow Him. Asking God to help us with the power of the Holy Trinity in our lives is the way of the Believer.
If you haven't asked Jesus to forgive you, cleanse you of sin, and your wrong way of living, please take the step and ask Him to be your Saviour.
John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son,that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life."
We encourage you to take this step. If you have experienced spiritual abuse or other forms of toxic relationships that keep you from taking the step in going to God for help, we would love to work with you.
