Addiction damages every area of our lives. Total recovery involves learning about and repairing each of these areas. Our renewed thinking about addiction should flow into how we think about all things. Total recovery requires full disclosure.
We practice openness and honesty in all of our affairs. This practice lessens the chances that our addiction to drugs will not simply shift to an addiction to something else. In this way we can recover fully.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. (Romans 12:2 NIV)
