The United States is the most medicated country in the world. More than 1.7 million Americans are struggling with addiction to prescription painkillers, fueling the opioid crisis that claims more than 140 lives every day. The trouble isn't just the drugs--it's that we don't know what to do with the people addicted to them. Not as a country, not as the church, not as a community. The opioid crisis reaches into our homes and challenges everything we thought we knew about the roots of addiction and what it means to be in recovery.Drawn from current research and the personal experience of the authors, The Heart of Recovery calls us to set aside judgment and to mend recovering addicts and their families with the stuff God uses to heal: compassion and community. It's a call to serve the ones who cannot repay, to continue to forgive, to fling the door wide open to the prodigal, and to remember the purpose of grace.A supportive community--family, friends, the church, and more--encourages and sustains long-term recovery. Learn how, through deep compassion, we can bring hope for healing.
