Hope in the Age of Addiction
How to Find Freedom and Restore Your Relationships
Help along the road to lasting recovery
Between alcohol, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, pornography, gambling, and eating disorders, fully 25 percent of the population of the United States is addicted to something. Those addictions are taking a massive physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial toll on individuals, families, and communities. The problem can feel insurmountable. But there is a solution, at once ancient and supported by the latest in neuroscientific research.
With an honest assessment of the facts, yet always reaching out toward hopeful solutions, counselors Chip Dodd and Stephen James explain what addiction is, how it works, and why it is so damaging to our hearts, souls, minds, and relationships. They then take us beyond mere coping techniques to the real solution--restoring our broken relationship with our Creator so we can rediscover how to live fully the way we were created to live.
There is hope--for us, for our loved ones, for our communities. Chip and Stephen show you how to find it, hold on to it, and let it propel you to a brighter tomorrow.
