Release from addiction

From the April 2016 issue of The Christian Science Journal

In this audio podcast, adapted for print and originally titled “Addiction—over and out,” Christian Science practitioner Tony Lobl spoke with Audio Producer Rita Polatin.

Today we’re talking about healing addiction, and we’re not just talking about the addictions we often hear about, such as those related to drugs, sex, and alcohol. We’re talking about anything a person may struggle with that destroys their ability to lead a normal life and leaves them feeling powerless and hopeless. So, Tony, as a Christian Science practitioner, someone who has a working knowledge of God and His law of harmony, how can you help someone struggling find a solution?

Rita, as someone who does have a working knowledge of God and His law of harmony, but also as someone who has struggled with addiction in his past, I think the important thing I’ve learned is that we can find a solution. In a lot of systems that approach the problem of addiction, that’s not always the assumption.
