If you’re addicted to drugs and alcohol, Teri Brown has a story worth hearing!

Teri battled substance abuse for years.  “It started pretty much while a teenager.  I lived in an urban community in San Francisco.  There were a lot of drugs and gangs.  I didn’t know anything about addiction at the time.  I had no one to turn to.  The addiction escalated from my teens into my early twenties.  It kept going until I finally had to realize that I was an alcoholic and I had to change my life.”

But, that was easier said then done.  “I smoked pot as a young teen and then went to crack cocaine.  Alcohol didn’t really play a part until my early twenties.”

So, what was behind the addiction?  “I didn’t fit in and always felt alone.  Alcohol and drugs took away the hurt and pain I carried with me.”

Teri eventually realized she couldn’t stop using drugs and alcohol by herself.  “I’ve always had the notion that I had to be independent—no one can help me.  That’s how I was raised.  If you want anything in life, you have to go out and get it.  I knew that God was always there for me.  I just never utilized that fact.  When I finally did, I was in prison at the time.  I knew I couldn’t keep on living that way I was living.  So, I prayed to God to help me and He did!  I felt this sensation go through me and I knew there was a presence of God that was right there with me. The desire went away—I knew when I walked out of the prison, I would never drink again.”
