Do I Have a Drug or Alcohol Problem?
For many who struggle with substance abuse and dependency, admitting that there is a problem can be challenging. Getting to that point means facing your pain and the effects your addiction has on those you love. It also means starting what might feel like an impossible journey of rehabilitation. Taking this first and often difficult step takes a lot of courage. We are here to help you walk on the waters of faith, so you can lean on Christ for healing – physically, emotionally, and spiritually.
