From My Own Prison to Redemption: Healing for the Wounded
By: James S Horkey
About the Book
A story of survival and victory, From My Own Prison to Redemption: Healing for the Wounded follows the diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of a man who was led to drug and alcohol addiction and dysfunctional interactions as a coping mechanism resulting from trauma suffered as a child.
If you or someone you love is suffering from drug and alcohol addiction, know you are not alone. There are hundreds of thousands of untreated people in addiction or just living in pain and suffering from the trauma inflicted on them as children.
Determined to break the cycle and help others as others have helped him, James S Horkey’s honest and heartfelt memoir offers hope to those suffering—be it the addict or their friends and family—that there is life beyond addiction, and no one is out of reach when God is invited into our lives to perform His miracles.
Inside, discover the steps Horkey took to find sobriety, from finding the courage to acknowledge his disease and seeking healing to living a joyful, prayerful, peaceful life in recovery; and perhaps, if you’re ready, begin a healing journey of your own.
