Dominic is 23 years old and has struggled with Heroin addiction for many years until embracing recovery nine months ago. Prior to moving into the Tikvah recovery house, he had attended church one time and had no relationship with God. His last overdose resulted in Congestive Heart Failure and required extensive cardiac rehabilitation. Since moving in ninety days ago, he obtained career-oriented employment, graduated Intensive Out-Patient Treatment (IOP) after fifteen attempts, paid off thousands of dollars in driver license reinstatement fines, obtained his license and then was blessed with a donated automobile!
Friends of Recovery is a Christ-centered ministry and Spiritual development is at the core. Dominic shared last week that “Something is going on inside me every time they do communion.” He said he wants to do it but wants to wait until he is absolutely sure because “it is a huge commitment.” Dominic summed up his past ninety days with us this way: “Today I am a father, son, brother, friend and most importantly, a productive member of society and no longer a burden.”
