Howard is one of our newer residents in the Men's Addiction Program.  He came here because of his meth addiction.  He was dealing marijuana for years but when it became legal, he lost a lot of customers. He and many of Howard’s friends switched to selling meth.  He began using the product and quickly became addicted to it.  Howard was able to keep it a secret for the first five years, but then those close to him became aware of his addiction.  He lost friends and family until his only ‘friends’ left were his customers.  His addiction brought him to some dark places like shooting up meth under a bridge.

 

Howard had tried to quit using for a year without any success.  He even participated in a 28 day program, but as soon as he completed it, he walked across the street to buy some meth.  His sister was worried about him so she told him about UGM. After Howard was almost killed during a raid by a rival gang, he knew he had to get out.  He phoned his sister and she helped him sign up for our program.

Since being in our program, Howard has learned that there is a better road to be on. The road he was on was filled with people who were damaging and hurting each other.  He is now on the road to happiness and meaning. “I no longer feel lonely or depressed.  I’m part of a community with other residents and chaplains who care about me.”  Howard is even having contact with his family member who he hasn’t talked to in four years.

He admits that he is a beginner Christian but he is excited to learn the Bible.  In his struggle to understand Scripture, he is confident that he will grow in his understanding.  Please pray for Howard to learn how to apply biblical truths to his life and to grow in his love for God.  Pray for him to have strength in times of temptation.

Philippians 1:6, “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
