For the one struggling with addiction:
There is a strong AA community within Longview. They are currently meeting through zoom as well as in some carefully controlled, socially distancing small groups. Zoom groups are available Tuesdays at 5pm; Wednesdays at noon.
AA also has sister programs for gambling, sex and narcotic addictions.
In the Rooms.
This is a service built to offer online help that has been around a long time.
. Especially for men with sexual/porn addiction, paired substance/sex addiction, and intimacy disorders
(East Texas Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse). A strong local resource.
For loved ones/family members of those struggling with addiction:
. Your loved one may or many not be ready to receive help; you can still help yourself. Al-Anon is a support group for relatives of addicts (of any kind) to help you on your own path to healing.
Though it may not always seem like it, sin will always end up destroying you; and - GOD IS BETTER THAN YOU CAN IMAGINE.
You are loved. You are forgiven. You are not alone. Help is available.
With living hope,
