Step 8: Forgiveness – Larry’s Story about Drug Addiction Recovery

Here’s the eight installment in Mormon Channel’s 12-part series about addiction recovery.

It is based on the eighth step of the addiction recovery program, which states:

Step 8 – Seeking Forgiveness: Make a written list of all persons you have harmed and become willing to make restitution to them.

Larry’s drug addiction started when he was a teenager, following a troubled childhood. He decided to run away from his broken home and went 13 years without speaking to his father. His anger at his parents fueled his addictive behavior. Seeking forgiveness for himself and for others was key to his recovery.
