Addictions. Family. Hope

Addiction is a very common struggle in America today. People are addicted to drugs, alcohol, gambling, sex, pornography, food, and smoking. You name it. And many people who want to overcome their addiction think that simply having enough willpower is enough for them to stop their addiction.  But this is faulty thinking. Why? Because it just doesn’t work. In fact, sometimes the more you “will” yourself out of an addiction, the deeper and deeper into the addiction you go. Here's the answer...everyone needs to be loved. It's God's will for us to know and experience His unconditional love and have a personal relationship with Him. He created us for acceptance, not rejection, and connection, not separation and abandonment.  When we receive God's love, we can become stable, mature, healed, whole and vibrant individuals and have the great lives He wants us to have. But when people don't get unconditional love, they end up with damaged emotions, trying to function day to day in their brokenness. And often, the result is an addictive behavior.  Please join us for this insightful presentation from Ronn Constable, a former heroin addict and Teen Challenge graduate. Not only does he address the common pitfalls of addicts, but also the enabling behavior of those closest to the addict.
