Deliverance from Addiction for young Men 17 to 25

WisdomLiving-Page1-3col

Addiction is a serious problem in Upstate South Carolina and throughout our society. Many lives are destroyed by addiction to alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs, to name a few. Addiction takes its toll on families and taxpayers. It is virtually impossible for an addict to become free from addiction on his own.

A proven solution is available to all who seek it; however, most pursue popular, politically correct avenues of treatment  without lasting success.

There are many drug treatment programs. Some substitute legal substances for the illegal drugs. Some use various psychological techniques. Any one of these programs may provide temporary relief, or an illusion of relief, but the individual remains an addict with a craving for the drug.

Hollys-Parents_Page-16Dale and Shirley Roberts, grandparents of The Time Examiner columnists Heather and Raquelle Sheen, recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Dale is a native of Texas and Shirley hails from Oklahoma, but they were married in Lewiston, Idaho--the first wedding held in the very-new Orchards Baptist Church. In fact, the church 'building' was still simply a large tent.

With five children and their families scattered literally from coast-to-coast, a family celebration and reunion was held at a beautiful lodge in Mineola, Texas. This was the first time in years that the entire family had all been together. Everyone made it!
