A streaming library for the addiction counselor:
It’s hard to find good, quality addiction recovery resources that are Bible based and Christ-centered. Jesus delivered me from drugs six years ago and I listen to a lot of these episodes now to help with the battle I’m still facing.. a 17+ year struggle with an eating disorder (which I also consider an addiction). I know it won’t be long before I am set free from this too. Thank you for providing so much free information through this podcast. It’s been invaluable to me.
As someone who has a sibling who is suffering with alcohol addiction this has solid Gospel traching.
Thank you so much for this podcast. I have been in addiction recovery, been coached, and counseled BUT nothing cures like the Word of God. I am so blessed to have found this. I am learning so much and want to listen over and over because there is so much “spiritual food” gleaned from the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
