Recovery is Possible

Some people consider addictions to only be bad habits that can be conquered by willpower alone, but many people become so dependent on a behavior or a substance that they no longer see how to abstain from it. However, through Jesus Christ and His Atonement, you can recover and enjoy all the blessings of the gospel.

Join in studying and applying the principles of the gospel of Jesus Christ. If you follow this path with a sincere heart, you will find the power you need to recover from addiction. The Savior will strengthen you and you will come to “know the truth, and the truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

Support in Recovery

Receiving love and support from others is also essential in helping you overcome destructive habits (see Support in Recovery: sources of support for participants and family members).

Heal the Spirit, Mind, and Body

Addiction harms an individual's Spirit, mind, and body. True recovery focuses on healing all of the different aspects of ourselves that make us who we are. It is only through the Atonement of Jesus Christ and His gospel that we can be fully healed and freed from the bonds of addiction. Watch all three videos on healing the spirit, mind and body.

"I testify to you that your body, mind, and spirit can be transformed, cleansed, and made whole, and you will be freed."
