IBS launches new program to help addictions.

By May 26, 2006

International (MNN)–The International Bible Society just launched an effective program to combat addictions. Addictions affect approximately 20-percent of Americans.

According to IBS, more than 50 million people in the U.S. are addicted to sex, alcohol, drugs, an eating disorder, or gambling. The latest statistics estimate that every household has contact with at least one person with an addiction.

IBS offers the voices and faces of actual recovering addicts. ‘The Journey of Recovery’ New Testament and ‘The Journey of Recovery’ DVD provide the stories and faces of recovering addicts, and offers a type of discipleship journey help.

The recovery program includes a time-tested 12-step program, self-tests, references to specific resources, and tips to find a recovery group or treatment center.

Pray that the uniqueness of the Gospel opens doors to seeing changed hearts and lives.
