Bill Whitson

"I was saved at the age of 15, came from a good Christian background raised in church. Fell away from God, got out of communion with God, tried to replace God with drugs, alcohol, and relationships.

Praise God, his grace is sufficient. No pill, K2, Bath Salt, no synthetic can replace the authentic Jesus Christ."

Brittanie Haynes "I grew up in Church but had let the things of this world overtake my life. Making bad decisions I used marijuana, alcohol, pills and meth. I would do anything to get high. I was nothing but a broken piece of clay but God did not throw me away.

On September 2011, I rededicated my life to God.

 

I could not imagine not being able to go to heaven and see Jesus and hear well done my good and faithful servant.

 

I have been attending small group meetings at Tri-Cities Recovery for support."

"Even though as a young teenager I accepted Jesus Christ as my personal Savior, I struggled with depression, drug, and alcohol abuse. Throughout my life, time after time my lifestyle repeatedly destroyed my family, finances, jobs, and self esteem. I made promises to myself, family members, and God that I would quit the old life styles and become a better person. Each time unable to keep my promises because of the strongholds that the drugs, alcohol, and sin had in my life. Each time lowering my self-esteem and a greater sense of failure as a husband, father and as a person in general.

On October 17, 2010, I attempted to take my own life. The devil had me convinced that it was the only way to be free from the pain I was going through and what I was putting my family through.

I have now chosen to make my Savior Jesus Christ not only my personal Savior but the Lord over my life.

The things I destroyed through the sin in my life are now being restored thanks be to God, my loving wife and children. Tri-Cities Recovery has provided me with support and insight on strengthening my relationship with my Lord Jesus Christ."

 Cody and Amanda

"Our marriage was on the rocks and we had just had a newborn son. I was a very angry person and Cody, a pain pill addict, had just been released from jail. The lies, fighting and dishonesty were tearing us apart.

We had finally had enough of the mess and decided to get in touch with Tri-Cities Recovery. They helped to guide us in the direction of how to accept Jesus as our savior. It has truly been a blessing to go from not having the Lord in our lives, to him being in our lives. And, we give Him our utmost thanks for bringing such joy and peace into our lives."
