Need Recovery From An Addiction?

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

There is help for addictions. The first step is to admit you have a habit, turn your will over to God, and ask God through prayer to deliver you from the demon of addiction with prayer. Looking back, I can recall there were times that I prayed, and there were times I tried to do things with my own strength and will, but I did not have much success doing it that way.

It was so frustrating that I could only make it 30 or even 60 days without drugs or alcohol. But I did not give up, even though I slipped several times. I thank God I let God in my life in 1986 and started to follow Him because that is what made the difference. Yes, many people had helped me, but God held me tight and guided me the whole time. Being off of drugs and alcohol was one of the most significant accomplishments and best decisions I have made, and I encourage you to reach out to others if you are battling an addiction of any kind! ~ Bill Greguska

Ephesians 5:18  Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.

Has Society Turned Into A Frog In A Kettle?

In our society, alcohol and drugs have become an accepted way of life. Our community has become like a frog in a kettle. Then the gas slowly turned up, and the water was getting warmer. The frog is unaware of the subtle temperature change, not realizing he should jump out of the kettle. He gets false security in his comfortable water, which turns out to be his death. (if he did not treat his conditions in the pot, as usual, he would have jumped out, just like many in our society with addictions!)

There has been an alarming increase in drug and alcohol problems in the United States alone. The more bad habits that have started because of a more permissive attitude in general of parents due to lack of nurturing and training of their children, coupled with our young people’s peer pressure. It is so evident that many Americans battle with alcohol and drugs for many different reasons.



Many Types Of Addictions!

There are other types of addictions, such as gambling problems, pornography, overeating, and smoking cigarettes. By the way, if you want some resources on quitting smoking, click here. I also borrowed a 12-step program from NA and AA programs to fit my thinking and faith in Jesus Christ. 





Recovery Was Hard

Lord, you have given me free will, and with that freedom, I made costly mistakes. By your grace, you have forgiven me, redeemed me, and set me back on the right path. That path was not always easy, yet it was worth all the effort, and knowing you were always with me made the struggle easier. I went to Alcoholics Anonymous, and later to Narcotics Anonymous. I consider them the start of my recovery. After that, I focused on you and going to church for my support, wisdom, and strength. Lord, it was a blessing to slowly see how you have taken me out and matured me so I could begin to grow out of my addiction. Lord, using that same free will you blessed me with, I chose to become alcohol and drug-free. I went to 30-day treatment centers many different times, but I needed more than 30 days of treatment to fix me.

I am so thankful that I got long term treatment, spending two years at the Gemini House in Winnebago, WI. That is when things fell into place. It was a lot of work, but it was worth all the positive results. Looking back, it was not a hard choice to make since I could see what my addictions did to me, and the option of not straightening out and the consequences were not things I was willing to endure anymore.

Lord, after you led me to long-term recovery, I tapered off of N.A, which I attended for about ten years. I found Elmbrook church in 1989, and I eventually turned to you*. Elmbrook Church and a Wednesday night Bible study led by my friend Pastor Mark Mallwitz were my main supports. Lord, you have been a gentleman with me, never forcing me to do anything. You have not made me a robot. Although I made many wrong choices, you always somehow got me back on track as I have learned to take the high road and narrow path. I know for sure that when I walk with you, Lord, there can be times that are hard to endure, yet with you all things are possible. 

Lord, after you led me to long-term recovery, I cut back on my N.A. meetings and replaced them with church and Bible studies. I am glad Elmbrook Church helped me so much when I started attending in 1989, and I eventually turned to you fully and stopped going to Narcotics Anonymous (NA) and Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) meetings. I really benefited from attending Elmbrook Church and my Wednesday night Bible study led by my friend Pastor Mark Mallwitz. Both church and the study were my main supports after leaving NA and AA.

Openness is the first step toward recovery, addiction remains a secret because of the overwhelming shame associated with it. ~ David Sheff, American author
