Presentation Description

According to Phil Lovin who has been working in the field of addiction recovery and ministry from the past many years, addiction can be extremely isolating. He says that your world becomes smaller as you give up more of your life for making room for addiction. You distance yourself from people who ask you to quit addiction and get closer to those who encourage you to go for it. Asking for help with addiction is probably one of the most difficult parts of dealing with the problem. Most people try to overcome addiction on their own, wanting to prove that they’ve got full control over themselves. However, addiction recovery isn’t as simple as they believe, and involves reaching out & asking for help. Phil Lovin believes that the stronger your circle is, the faster your recovery would be.
