You can't do it alone. Jesus can help you get better.

The Guidance of a Higher Power

The basic tenet of Christian addiction treatment is that recovery is not possible without submitting your heart and mind to the will and guidance of Jesus Christ; and that through an honest admission of your shortcomings, mistakes and weaknesses, Jesus Christ will give you the strength needed to overcome these weaknesses.

Addicts can feel very alone when dealing with the emotional lows of their problem, and by taking Jesus Christ into their heart, returning to the love of the Christian community, and through the fellowship and support of other Christians; recovery is possible.
