My name is Kevin: I am a recovering addict
An estimated 12.8 million Americans, about 6 percent of the household population aged twelve and older, use illegal drugs on a current basis (within the past thirty days).
Kevin joined us for this interview from Fort Collins, Colorado where he was visiting his family after recently graduating from Teen Challenge in Winthrop, Maine. He and his wife, Angie, will be returning to work with Teen Challenge.
Kevin has struggled with an addiction to opiates for most of his adult life which led to the desperate destruction of relationships, financial stability, legal consequences, hopes and dreams and several near death experiences. Kevin has been clean and sober for nearly two years (April 1st). Kevin says he has been made new thanks to Jesus and his relationship with Him has made the difference in his life.
Listen to the recording of the February 18, 2011 Blog Talk Radio show as Kevin shares his journey into addiction and how he was able to turn his life around. Join us as we discuss the real world of an addict’s thoughts and choices and listen as Kevin shares his journey to recovery. There IS hope: Prodigal HOPE! [LISTEN NOW]
Prodigals are not limited to one’s children or drug use; whether child or adult, spouse, relative, or friend, anyone who walks away from God is lost and in need of prayer! Many of us love a prodigal who is addicted to drugs and/or alcohol; for others it may be a wayward spouse, sibling, parent or best friend. Adultery, addiction, distorted entitlement beliefs—extravagant reckless living.
