FAITH NEWS SERVICE – According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, more than twenty million Americans, ages twelve and older, suffered from a substance use disorder related to their use of alcohol or illicit drugs in 2018. Tens of thousands of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous groups meet every day worldwide.** Recovery from any substance is often sought but hard to achieve and maintain.
As Mark Twain once quipped about the difficulty of stopping cigarettes, “It’s easy. Done it thousands of times.”
After a traumatic experience with family member, Britni Boyce promised herself she would steer clear from illicit drugs. At age fourteen, however, she began smoking marijuana, which was the launching point of a ten-year drug addiction. Boyce advanced to stronger drugs and found herself in bondage to opiates and other substances before hitting rock bottom and deciding to stop. She wrote Recovery in Jesus’s Hands to encourage others struggling with addiction.
“My own testimony shows that true freedom from addiction is given through the grace of God; He is the provider of true freedom,” Boyce said. “I want readers to know they are worthy of a new life free from addiction and that God will take them to higher levels in life than they ever dreamed.”
Boyce has remained clean from drugs since she decided to give her life over to the Lord. With the help of Jesus, she reinvented herself—entered rehab, moved to a new state, and earned multiple degrees with honors. Recovery in Jesus’s Hands outlines the steps to living in freedom versus living in sobriety and uses the Bible as a blueprint.
“The most well-known recovery path teaches abstinence and sobriety and living consciously sober day by day, which is a miserable place to be,” Boyce said. “Freedom means we can live fully recovered, never thinking about resuming drugs and alcohol again.”
Recovery in Jesus’s Hands is directed to those in active addiction or recovery.
