Overview

Most people who have been hurt with addictions live somewhere between recovery and relapse. This is a vicious cycle that tears at the very fabric of the individual's life and soul, many times resulting in institutionalized behavior as they rotate in and out one rehab center after another. People who are controlled by addictions are one of the largest unreached groups in the world. Most addicts have no idea how to gain true and lasting recovery. If people are going to find lasting recovery from addictions, our methods and message must be based upon the truth that - Christ is the answer! We must see addictions as God sees them, and our addiction recovery methods and message must begin and end with Biblical principles. Although there have been many different approaches to the problem of addictions, the only true cure from addictions is found in the power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We must apply this truth in the life of the addict.

Discovery of Hope is an approach to addiction recovery that emphasizes Christ-Centered, Biblical methods rather than humanistic ones. The methods of the past are not working. We must, begin with God and where God begins, when learning how to overcome life-controlling habits. The proper approach to gaining freedom from addictions is a Systematic Learning of Biblical Principles. This book gives the addict tools for lasting freedom from addictions and is also the textbook for the self-paced online course "Discovery of Hope" offered through Transformed Life University at www.tluonline.com. The TLU learning platform allows the addict freedom to complete the course in the privacy and convenience of their home.
