Defeat drug addiction

These days reports in society of widespread addiction to drugs, including heroin and prescribed painkillers, can feel overwhelming. However, we are not helpless in our desire to help remedy this problem. Prayer can bring healing. But this requires more than a superficial look at the issue. We need to get at the real root of the problem and address the kinds of thoughts and beliefs underlying drug use in the first place.

Now, I know a little bit about this. When I was in my teens, I felt as if I didn’t fit in. The educational system didn’t seem to work for me, and I didn’t see any viable employment prospects on the horizon. I was generally unhappy and angry, and I felt pretty hopeless. So I looked for a way out and turned to drugs, just to feel a little better. Along with this came addiction.

I sensed all along that there had to be something to my identity beyond what the physical senses were telling me. I just didn’t know how to tap into that, and now I had this addiction problem. It wasn’t until I was introduced to Christian Science that I found freedom. And that freedom came naturally.
