Drs. Roger Barrier and Steve Dowdle discuss how to identify addictive behaviors, how to do an intervention for a loved one, and how to cope with a family member who is in trouble. Churches can provide support as well.
Low self-worth lies at the root of most addictions -- substance abuse, pornography, food disorders, internet abuse. People who miss the beauty of God's creation in themselves often turn to addictions to fill the hole of loneliness. Our communities can impact those who are struggling when we emphasize value to both the popular and the outcast.
