Understanding Grief & Addiction
Adult & Teen Challenge USA is proud to announce the release of its third study in the Breaking Free series: PSNL 307 – Grief and Addiction. This study encourages us to explore the relationship between addiction and grief. Addiction is a breeding ground for ongoing grief. It multiplies, complicates, and compounds it. Learning to mourn and heal by surrendering our grief to God, allows us to move forward in a healthy way.
Confronting Toxic Denial
Adult & Teen Challenge USA is proud to announce the release of its second study in the Breaking Free series: PSNL 207 – Confronting Denial. This study exposes one of the greatest enemies to overcoming addiction and other life-controlling issues…DENIAL. Denial blocks freedom, healing and growth by fooling us into believing we don’t have a problem. This study helps those affected by denial bravely face the truth about themselves, their world, and most importantly, the power of God to rescue, redeem, and restore.
Exposing the Nature of Addiction
Adult & Teen Challenge USA is proud to announce the release of its first study in the Breaking Free series: PSNL 107 – Exposing the Nature of Addiction! This introductory study provides us with straightforward insight into the very nature of addiction. We are challenged to make hard-hitting assessments of how addiction has affected or is affecting our lives (and the lives of those we love). This is the first step in breaking free from addiction because addiction thrives in darkness (denial, confusion, and manipulation).
What is Addiction? Why It’s Okay to Ask
When we say “addiction,” most people would presume to know what that means. After all, they have probably learned about the term in school, they have probably seen commercials about it, or they have probably known someone who suffered from it. But that person could never be you, could it?
Why You Shouldn’t Be Embarrassed to Seek Drug Addiction Help
There are many factors that play into someone avoiding seeking drug addiction help. They may not be ready to admit that they have a problem, they may think they can take care of their addiction themselves, or they may be avoiding treatment because seeking it means that they have to be “outed” as an addict.
How Parents Can Help Their Addicted Teens with Addiction Recovery Through Communication
