Love Addiction Recovery

QUESTION: Is there hope for love addiction recovery?

ANSWER:

As with any addictive behavior, a person who is addicted to love can have hope that they will recover. But how can this recovery occur? What hope can a person rely on that will see them through their love addiction?

Recovery, Phase 1: Have to Want It – Just as with any addiction, you first have to want to be free from your controlling substance or behavior. Recovery will require patience and fortitude that you may not have on your own. Thankfully, there are professional counselors and programs available to you that can lend you their strength when you feel as through you have none. With their help, recovery is more than possible.

Recovery, Phase 2: Get the Help – Love addiction recovery is just what it says: recovering from an addiction. In other words, it’s serious business. It requires the addict to adhere to certain guidelines in order to break free of destructive behavior. Again, counselors can walk you through this process step by step and be there for you as a tower of strength and support.

Recovery, Phase 3: God’s Gift – Even with the help of every counselor known to man and strictly adhering to every program you can find, the battle against love addiction will always seem endless. . .without God. For believers in God, hope is the standard upon which faith is built. That faith leads to freedom from behaviors that are born out of abused and neglected early years of growth and love.

Do you feel like you’re by yourself? The Bible tells us that God will not fail us or abandon us (Joshua 1:5)! Do you feel that the recovery process is too much for you to handle? “With God everything is possible (Matthew 19:26).

Anything that man can possibly think of, God is bigger, better, and greater. He is greater than any addiction as long as you allow Him into your life. He only wants what is best for you. It’s time to rely on God to do what seems impossible in your situation. Together with counselors, you will be more than a conqueror. You will be an over-comer!

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
