Help Weston on his road to recovery

Weston needs your help:
Wes wants to change, but cannot do it without mental health treatment and an addiction recovery center, both of which cost an outrageous amount of money. If you do not have the ability to make a monetary donation, please pray for him.

Things about drug addiction:
Prolonged exposure to drugs alters the brain in ways that result in powerful cravings and a compulsion to use. These brain changes make it extremely difficult to quit by sheer force of will.
Most experts agree that addiction is a brain disease, but that doesn't mean you're a helpless victim. The brain changes associated with addiction can be treated and reversed through therapy, medication, exercise, and other treatments.

Support is essential to addiction recovery:
When a mental health problem goes untreated, the substance abuse problem usually gets worse as well. And when alcohol or drug abuse increases, mental health problems usually increase too.
Alcohol or drugs are often used to self-medicate the symptoms of depression or anxiety. Recovery depends on treating both the addiction and the mental health problem. People with substance abuse and mental health problems can and do get better. The best chance of recovery is through integrated treatment for both the substance abuse problem and the mental health problem. This means getting combined mental health and addiction treatment from the same treatment provider or team.

Things about Heroin:
Heroin is highly addictive and withdrawal extremely painful. The drug quickly breaks down the immune system, finally leaving one sickly, extremely thin and bony and, ultimately, dead. Drugs equal death. If you do nothing to get out, you end up dying. To be a drug addict is to be imprisoned.

"Always put your complete trust in Heavenly Father, have faith that everything will work out in the end, do everything in your power to accomplish your goal and he will take care of the rest."

"....remember the spirit and how powerful those sacred feelings are.you know What to do wes...you deserve to be happy."

"I'm so thankful I have such an amazing, loving, supportive and strong family. Thank you for the prayers and thank you for having faith in me. I need all the prayers I can get."
