There is a common thread amongst ALL those in addictions. What is it? Well, there’s the well known emotional pain that everyone knows about. Then there’s the unspeakable dependence that everyone isolates as descriptive of a ‘criminal’ mind. Hogwash!!! So, everyone who uses is a criminal? It’s about time that addiction is decriminalized. Is everyone insane?
Addiction is a symptom of despair. Let’s wake up! If it can be properly defined, it can be successfully treated. We need to understand addiction as a spiritual problem that demands a spiritual solution. It’s NOT a disease and it it NOT forever…unless you will it to be so.
God liberates the addict (I use this term only for your understanding…in our treatment, we do not allow this word ever to be used.) Jesus came to “set the captive FREE”. This includes addiction. If you, yourself are in an addiction, I understand it appears too hard to ask for help; however, your alternative is a death sentence. You matter! Your life matters! I will work with you if you allow me. If you have a loved one in an addiction, contact me and we can talk. It’s too late when you receive that ‘phone call’ telling you that you need to come to identify their body. Today is the day!
