One Client’s Daily Struggle
Johnny M has been fighting a drug addiction for most of his life. After nearly 15 years of sobriety, he had a moment of relapse. This was the beginning of his downward spiral. His addiction resulted in marital problems and subsequently Johnny was homeless.
Miserable and hungry, Johnny M sought CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread for help. There he received a hot meal, nurturing care and genuine concern for his well being. His recovery began after his initial evaluation and discovery that he also suffered from a bipolar disorder with suicidal tendencies.
With the correct balance of medication, Johnny completed treatment, and currently lives in a transitional living facility. He expresses his gratitude for the education, counseling, 12-step meetings, meals and emotional support provided by CHRISTUS Our Daily Bread.
