Steps to Healing – not just coping
The big step from the THE BUILDING BLOCKS OF ADDICTION to STEPS TO HEALING is typically hitting bottom or some sort of crisis. If you have struggled wth any form of addiction you already know that healing from addiction is not simple.
Although patterns exist, everyone’s healing journey is different. We are presenting ideas/techniques that we have found to be successful or useful in our own journeys.
We have organized these more-or-less in something like a step-by-step order. The order you go through and what works for you and what steps you need to repeat is up to you.
Addiction typically leads to various forms of isolation and loss of community.

2. Social community – friends.
Meaning, the antidote to suffering, comes from responsibility.
Release of Stress
Not only believe in, but give your life to God.
