“MY ADDICTION BECAME SECOND NATURE AND I KNEW NOTHING ELSE AFTER SEVEN YEARS OF METHAMPHETAMINE USE”.
My addiction became second nature and I knew nothing else after seven years of methamphetamine use. However, God had a plan for me. I entered “The Bridge Restoration Ministry” December 19th, 2013. “The Bridge” not only provided me with food and housing, they also introduced me to community involvement, vocational training, relationship building, transitional housing, Christian fellowship, and something greater than all, a relationship with Jesus Christ. Mike and Michele Casey helped lead me closer to my Father than I had ever been before.
I now have two years eight months clean, a beautiful family, a great job, a wonderful fellowship group, and a church family. I notice that a lot of guys are ashamed of where they’ve been in their addiction, even ones who’ve completed the program and are continuing to succeed. It’s very sad because the men in “The Bridge” can begin to feel hopeless or like outcasts amongst others in their environment. I know because I’ve been there.
I enjoy staying involved by going to “Regeneration” and meeting the new guys. I believe we can all encourage and support these men not only financially but emotionally as well. We have all made mistakes and we all have words of wisdom we can share. Don’t be afraid to reach out. Your help has helped change my life and will continue to change the lives of others. Thank You!
