If you have never walked the path of addiction with a loved one, friend or co-worker, it will be hard to understand the literal hell that everyone faces down this path of destruction. Anyone of our lives could be forever changed, in an instant, by the use of drugs or alcohol, just as anyone of us may suffer the damaging effects that the addiction may bring upon innocent others.
There is HOPE from the ravages of addiction! The Hope comes when the addict or alcoholic realizes they have a problem, they truly want help and they have the unwavering prayers, love and support of people who are walking this path with them. God is the God of second chances, never forget that.
As the President of Serenity Tea Sips, LLC, I have personal knowledge of these organizations and encourage you to prayerfully support them through monetary donations or volunteer work if you are in their areas. While addiction may lead to crime and incarceration may result as restitution for the crime(s) committed, incarceration is not the answer long-term in helping a man, woman or child build their life back to become a strong, capable functioning member of society.
Please, prayerfully, consider a monetary donation to the charities that we also support.

Nexus Recovery’s mission is to serve as a link to sobriety, independence and dignity for low-income women and their families affected by addiction. We inspire hope, offer respect, and honor the unique differences of female addicts. This Dallas non-profit is at the forefront of specialized substance abuse services for females. Nexus offers programs for adult women and adolescent girls ages 13 to 17, including those pregnant or accompanied by children.
Continually striving for excellence, Nexus has been accredited by The Joint Commission since 2006. This accreditation is common for private centers, but rare in the non-profit sector due to the high standards required to earn and maintain. Nexus believe that ability to pay should not dictate the quality of care received.
