Alcohol and Drugs and Incarceration

Alcohol and Drugs Ruined My Life

I had everything going for me. At one point I was a wealthy physical therapist and had a beautiful family, ranch, horses, and ponds on my property. However, I made many small compromises that led to great disasters. I allowed the stress of my life to lead me to alcohol and drugs.

My Incarceration

I was arrested 13 times for drunken driving, the last of which nearly cost the lives of many people. When I woke up in jail, which was not uncommon for me, I soon found myself revoked of my driving license and my license to practice medicine.

My Desperation

When I hit rock bottom, I discovered the RU Recovery Program, which turned out to be a lifeline for me. I started attending their meetings while incarcerated, and after my release, I continued to attend them at Grace Baptist Church in Ohio. Even though my legal situation was dire, with a potential two to five years in prison, I was granted an opportunity to join the Men’s Discipleship Home in Rockford through a miraculous court order. I’m grateful that I was able to participate in this program and turn my life around. However, I realize that recovery is an ongoing journey that requires dedication and support. That’s why I’m considering enrolling in an intensive outpatient program NJ, which will allow me to continue my recovery while balancing my other responsibilities.

My Deliverance and Restoration

That was 2002. Today, I work full time in this wonderful Christian ministry. I have a beautiful home, beautiful wife and family, and have gained full privileges to drive again. The day after I miraculously received my license back, my wife shot a hole in one at a golfing event and won a prize—you guessed it, a beautiful Cadillac! I have finally came to realize God is so good, and I am so unworthy. Won’t you give God the same opportunity! I have personally seen Him do these things in the lives of hundreds of other people just like me?
