Drug Addiction. Jesus Wept.

how-to-help-someone-with-drug-addiction-depression

This week my heart has been breaking repeatedly. I recently stepped out of my Corporate Human Resources role with Addiction Campuses and joined the front lines as an Admissions Manager.  This past week I have been sitting side by side with our amazing Treatment Specialists who take calls from people who are struggling with drug addiction or their loved ones.

The phones ring constantly.

Constantly.

Drug addiction is real, people. It’s right in front of our faces… it’s not just the homeless person living under a bridge. It’s the CEO, the stay at home mom, the ministry leader, the accountant, every day “normal” people suffering from a real disease.

I’m overwhelmed by the need … but I’m hopeful about the treatment.

If you or a loved one needs help, please reach out to me. We can get you help!

If this breaks your heart like it does mine – please offer up some prayers for our nation.

I sat at my kitchen table last night, eating dinner, heavy heart with tears streaming and the only thing I could hear in my spirit was, “Jesus wept.”

He wept …. but then he gave life back to a dead person.

He. Is. Faithful.

  1. “… it’s not just the homeless person living under a bridge. It’s the ,,,” …the homeless people living in houses, working at career jobs, outwardly appearing successful for all the world to see but just as homeless suffering broken marriages, families, promises and rootlessness and homelessness in a thousand devastating expressions that fly just below the radar.
