Recovery Stories

Lawrence D's Story


I was molested sexually at 13. From there I found alcohol and drugs, anything to hide the pain of my suffering. At 45 it just came out one day and my family was shocked. It all made sense to my wife of why I abused drugs and alcohol. I have been with a Christian counselor for many years and was able to forgive with the help of Jesus Christ. I was asked to start a recovery meeting at my church by my pastor. I am now helping others with addiction. I must say by helping them really helps me. We must give back. The grace and forgiveness that was freely given to me, I must freely give to others suffering from this terrible disease
