“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, / and do not rely on your own insight. / In all your ways acknowledge him, / and he will make straight your paths.” — Proverbs 3: 5-6

Jesus teaches us that in order to inherit the kingdom of God we must feed the hungry, give drink to the thirsty, be hospitable to strangers, clothe the naked, and visit the sick and those in prison (see Mt 25:35–36). But how are we caring for friends, family, or acquaintances who suffer from addictions, either from substances, such as alcohol or drugs, and/or behaviors, such as pornography, gambling, food, etc.?

It is humbling, and a total act of surrender, to admit one has a problem, much less needing to ask for help. The truth is, very few families or addicts recover alone. Therefore, having a network of support, not just family and friends, but also from the local/church community, is crucial for any person trying to overcome substance abuse, as well as for that person’s family members.

In Battling Addiction with the Help of Your Faith, you will come to understand what signs to look for in a loved one, an example from a saint who suffered from addiction, some of the steps needed to make progress when the person suffering wants to quit, and what, as a family member or friend, can we do.
