October is National Substance Abuse Prevention Month, and this month youth.gov is concentrating on the young Americans who are abusing drugs and alcohol. However, it is important to remember when any member of a family has an addiction, every family member is sucked in whether we like it or not.

Whether we want to admit it or not.

When addiction is in the picture, we are all photobombing – – – in one way or another. And, trust me, it is no joke.

Have you reached the point where, like me, you are ready to admit you are powerless over addiction that your life had become unmanageable? I pray you respect yourself to take the first step and free yourself from the quicksand of addiction? Place your feet on the solid Rock.

God alone is the mighty rock that keeps me safe, and he is the fortress where I feel secure. God saves me and honors me. He is that mighty rock where I find safety. Trust God, my friends, and always tell him each one of your concerns. God is our place of safety (Psalm 62:6-7 CEV).
