A promise for a better tomorrow

My name is Trisha and I am hoping to raise money for my older brother to get into a program that is actually going to help. He struggles with a lot of trauma from his past causing several mental issues leading to drug addiction. He is 37 and would love to have a family of his own one day to truly enjoy life but his addiction is crippling his ability to do so.  He doesn’t want to waste anymore of his life , he wants to live, love , and work hard. Ultimately, he wants to live a life full of the Lord and once he gets past this his desire or to help others that feel helpless, like him right now, find that hope.  

We have found an amazing Christian based program with a focus on mental health versus addiction (because ultimately he uses because he doesn’t know how to process all that has happened in his life)  that would provide everything he needs in order to come out on top and end his drug addiction. We are asking for help because our family can not pay for the program.

Why do we like this one over the others? This program is an inpatient program and first and foremost, focuses on the Lord. There are several different types of counseling that will help him to process his trauma both physically and mentally. Having him go through it while they help him to have different reactions to it (which will be HUGE for his healing from the trauma). He has a tendency to suppress and when we suppress that’s where we find vices to deal instead of coping in healthy ways. They will help him develop healthy coping mechanisms and one way this is done is by the staff living on site.  They are there to help in EVERY situation that arises as they arise walking him through the hard moments with someone to care for him. Another amazing feature this program has in  that the patient to staff ratio is very small so that the staff can actually be there during those hard times to help the patients. As I said before this program focuses on truly helping the person fully and this program has so much that could be extremely beneficial for him. We are aspiring to raise enough for one month, but if we get more money for my brother to do multiple months that would be ideal!

It would be so amazing to have your help in a success sorry of redemption. My brother accepted Christ 6 years ago. He has been in and out of jail since he accepted Christ. Once the temptation of the drugs are around he has a hard time resisting them, it doesn’t help that he keeps being released  to the very place that his addiction started. He would benefit so much from this program and also from moving out of his home town to have a new life in our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He wants this, he wants to win the battle from the demons that keep trying to take over his mind, the ones that want him to continually fail. But I know Hour God does not want him to fail but wants his story to be used for the kingdom and the Glory of God.
