A program has been developed over the past decade to help those who suffer from the devastating effects of various addictions. The church says results have been impressive.
According to LDS Family Services, there are currently nearly 1,000 addiction recovery groups in the United States and Canada and others in Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, England, Germany and Mongolia. Many other areas are planning on starting addiction recovery groups, including a servicemen's branch in Afghanistan. More than 2,000 church-service missionaries and volunteer facilitators serve as leaders in the program.Approximately 25 percent of these meetings focus solely on addiction recovery from pornography. The others are general-focus groups addressing drug, alcohol, food and other addictions.
