Beating heroin addiction in prison – One inmate’s story [VIDEO]

Heroin addiction. For some 1.5 million American’s, heroin addiction is an everyday nightmare; even a lifelong sentence. It’s tough to beat as the chemistry of the drug takes over cells and controls one’s life. Actually, the deeper issue is what psychologists would call an “addictive personality”, which simply means one has personality traits predisposed to addictions that keeps the addiction in place.

Can prayer and spiritual study alone heal someone with an addictive personality? Can it heal a daily drug addiction? From personal experience the answer is yes. Absolutely. When the heart is transformed spiritually—that is when one begins to loath their life and is willing to do anything in their power to turn their lives over to God—that’s when the chains are broken. When one’s relationship to God becomes the focus of their life the relationship to addiction, along with the addiction itself, fades.

In this inspiring story told by Chaplain George, you’ll hear about a woman with a heroin addiction. And she beats her addiction in prison when her heart is spiritually transformed and freed of her addictive personality and the trail of hurt it causes. It’s a story of redemption. And no matter where we are in our lives we can all seek to be redeemed of something standing between us and God.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we did videotaping this wonderful story.

Blessings,

    Beautiful healing! It brought Christ Jesus’ words to mind from Luke 17 “And when he was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, he answered them and said, The kingdom of God cometh not with observation: Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.”

    This is a great example of how nothing can stop healing even in the most helpless situations. It’s true that some people are labeled as having an addictive personality or are vulnerable to negative influences. I love how this video shows that we can beat the pull to addiction-whatever the scenario. This truly is a testament to all things are possible. Wow.

    I really loved this healing. In my family there have been healings of drug addiction, alcoholism, smoking and overeating. I was just talking to a neighbor today about the possibility of being healed of alcoholism and smoking. These are two issues that she has been struggling with. The way that I have seen healing take place has been through the absolute conviction ” that all things are possible to God”….as the Bible states.
