Step 9: Restitution and Reconciliation – John’s Story on Drug Addiction Recovery

- Advertisment - Save on Great LDS Gifts

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

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

When he finally faced the damaged he had caused in his life and the lives of those he loved, he wondered if there was any hope for the future. Because God helped him make amends, there was.
