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

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:

Step 9 – Wherever possible, make direct restitution to all persons you have harmed.

John was leading a double life, but soon his drug addiction took over everything else. In the space of two years, he lost his job, his house, and his family. 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.
