Recovery is a process. Even though a twelve-month program may sound like a long time, for some it may be just the start of their recovery journey. Tim knows what it’s like to be stuck in addiction and living a criminal lifestyle. He first came through the Heartland Recovery Program in 2015, but says, “I didn’t really ever surrender my life to the Lord… when I left here I got right back into addiction.”
This time around, though, Tim realizes what a difference it made to have a relationship with Jesus Christ and accountability to others. “Living your life in surrender, you don’t have to carry that burden of messing up…there are people God puts in your life to help you.” He encourages others to seek that new way of life too.
