Addiction Free

8 3. Individual

8 3. Individual Counseling This is used to help motivate addicts to begin recovery. Often families are included in the counseling process. 4. Group Counseling This is similar to individual counseling but less costly and less intensive. Sessions take place with a group of individuals dealing with a similar addiction. The group is facilitated by a trained professional. One father and mother, whose son was persuaded to enter an inpatient treatment center, attended their son’s graduation from the program. Here is their description of the positive results: “Our son’s graduation event will forever be etched in our memory as a rebirth of our child. It had been so many years since we had seen him drug or alcohol-free that we actually had a hard time recognizing him. He looked absolutely wonderful and his behavior was so accepting and calm. For years we had wondered if we would ever see our ‘real’ son again.” 4 Hand It Over to God One woman, who has been free from drug addiction for fifteen years, says, “I went through five years of hell, during which I made vows, promises and sought treatment. Nothing

helped.” A turning point came during one night shortly after her husband and two children forced her to leave their home because of her drug abuse. “Truly desperate and at my wits end, I called a church I had seen many times while driving to and from work. The minister’s wife answered the phone. After listening to me, she invited me to come right over. There we both knelt at the church altar. She prayed for me and I prayed for myself, giving it all over to God. The next morning when I woke up all desire for drugs was gone. I’ve never relapsed. To stay drug free, I continue to pray, meditate, read the Bible, and regularly attend worship… all that keeps me close to the God who saved me from self-destruction.” The Bible reminds us that life-transforming change is possible and that God’s only desire is for our good and our wholeness. Hand your life and your addiction over to God. Seek God’s love and healing. Let yourself be guided and helped by focusing on these Bible verses: “… casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you.” —1 Peter 5:7 “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” —Jeremiah 29:11 9
