What Graduates of Columbus Women’s Rehab Have to Say




 

“I grew up in a very loving Christian family. I was very involved in church. In my senior year of high school, I started to hang out with the wrong group of people. Once I entered college, it got worse. One drug consumed my life: OxyContin and any pain pill I could get my hands on. I lived for this drug day and night. My husband and I started to use this drug together. Even when I found out I was pregnant, the drug use just got worse and worse. I was so depressed I had no hope. Eventually, I overdosed and ended up in a psych ward. We both decided to come to the substance abuse treatment center at Columbus Teen Challenge, and God has just completely changed both of our lives. I have hope and a future now. I know that my son’s going to have godly parents now.”

“God has delivered me from the bondage of addiction, anger, fear, depression, and self-loathing. Teen Challenge in Columbus, GA, allowed me to lift my head with real hope for the future. I used to depend on the bottle in my hand for survival, but now I’ve thrown the bottle away, and I’m holding on to Jesus.”

–Tori

“I was not brought up as a Christian. Intelligence and education were stressed as the most essential things in life, so I became an outstanding student and had big goals for myself. At age 13, however, I was sexually assaulted. I then became rebellious and started experimenting with drugs, which became a lifestyle for me. By age 24, I started using heroin, which led to a 20-year addiction and a lot of psychological problems. All of my dreams faded away, and I was dying of my addiction. I lost my will to live and was completely broken.

At age 44, I had hit rock bottom and decided to go to Columbus Teen Challenge. After a few months there, my life was permanently changed. I finally felt God’s presence there and accepted Christ into my heart. Today, I never wake up sad or depressed. I’m happy to be alive and have dedicated my life to serving Christ.”

–Lisa

“I was lost. I had no direction in life, no meaning. The life I knew was failing me. The things I loved to do became useless. I had begun selling myself as a prostitute to support my addiction. Accepting nothing but abuse my whole life, I knew I was worthless. I was searching and experimenting and finding nothing but hurt and self-affliction, so I covered it up with the drugs.

After coming to the Teen Challenge for Women in Columbus, Georgia, I am filled with the joy of the Lord. I know my stains are wiped clean. Surrendering entirely to Christ has been the best choice I’ve ever made. Everything I ask Him for help with, He has taken care of… most of all, He has restored me.”

–Callie

“I grew up in a blessed home with parents who loved and supported me. When I left for college, I rebelled. I wanted to be accepted so badly that I did anything to fit in. My priorities went down the drain, and I failed my first year. So, I joined the Coast Guard to escape my problems, but I got arrested twice and fell harder into my addiction. I moved back home and got into a toxic relationship; two months later, I found out I was pregnant, and the father fled. I was so lonely and lost and never thought I could have joy again. But I was wrong.

I came to Teen Challenge in Columbus and now have a relationship with God. He has shown me His faithfulness and is restoring my relationship with my family. I can now say that I have hope and a new outlook for the future!”

–Melinda

“I was adopted literally and figuratively. First, at age 3, I had a family that I felt never really accepted or approved of me. I felt different, unwanted, unloved, and unimportant. I thought of myself as a mistake and never good enough. My mother was never pleased with who I was. Everything she tried to force me to be or do, I did the opposite. I started making bad decisions and fell into a life of partying and drug addiction. Then, one night, I cried in bed, feeling sorry for myself. I heard the Lord speak to my heart, telling me I am more than this.

After coming to the Teen Challenge rehab center in Columbus, GA, I now live and breathe for God. I have a reason to get up in the mornings. Now, I am a woman with a purpose, and that purpose is to live for HIM. I need his approval because on Christ the solid rock I stand.”
