I am a very blessed person. I was an addict for twenty years and then one day I woke up and just needed to do something more with my life than get high. I went to detox and while there told them that I needed treatment. They ask me if I had any preference about where I wanted to go and I did not even think I just said I don't care as long as I go somewhere. That was God speaking through me. He led me to Faith Home in Greenwood, South Carolina. It is a Christian centered treatment that also incorporates the twelve steps of AA and NA. The best thing is it's high success rates (much higher than conventional treatment centers) and it is absolutely free of cost; that's right, it does not cost the addict one single cent. After all, how many addicts who finally want help have any money or even personal belongings? I would guess 99.9% of them have NONE, not even a spirit.
While at Faith Home I rededicated my life back to Jesus. Before I arrived I did not love myself, I couldn't even look myself in the mirror. I did not think God would want me anymore. Boy was I wrong. PRAISE GOD!!! He touched me, taught me, worked in me, worked through me. God brought me to Faith Home. God is the reason I am alive because I should have been dead a long time ago. Faith Home was the best thing God has ever given me that was made by man (with a lot of help from God of course).
While there God laid upon me what my purpose was. I am back in college with a 3.34GPA and will have my Bachelor Degree next July. I am applying to graduate schools as we speak and I am going after my PhD in Psychology specializing in substance abuse. Who better to help an addict get clean than someone who completely understands them and has walked a mile in their shoes. With God's help I am journeying toward opening my own practice that is going to be a bit unconventional. An addict needs help in every way; they need to learn to love themselves, they need mental healing, they need God so they can become whole again. I want to bring the Word of God and God's healing hand to drug addicts through psychology.
Not FictionHow can you know with certainty that the Bible is God’s Word? Why is it important not to simply know the Scriptures but also to apply them?
