One of the ways we determine what content to focus on on Mormon Women: Who We Are is to consider the search topics and keywords that bring people to our site. We’ve had some people searching on drug and alcohol addiction, so we wanted to share some stories from people who have found recovery from such addictions and/or faced the challenge of having a loved one with an addiction to drugs or alcohol.
Mandi Gubler shares that “My husband is an addict. His drug of choice is prescription pain killers. I am a co-dependent which means that my drug of choice is my addict husband. Through many miracles we have been brought back into the ever loving arms of our Savior again. Through his Atonement we have found hope and recovery.” She shares more details of her powerful story here.
Ruth is an LDS woman in recovery from being a drug addict and alcoholic. She also suffered from eating disorders.
All three of these people share how the gospel of Jesus Christ and the LDS Addiction Recovery program have helped them in their journey to recovery and healing.
