Meet William

Hope in the Midst of Pain

By Jeannie Thrall

Before William was incarcerated, he was told us needed to enter an alcohol and drug recovery program before his court date. Although William received several one on one counseling sessions at the Lamb Center about necessary steps to recovery, he not only failed to enter a recovery program, but also missed his court date.

From behind bars William wrote that he had about six or seven weeks left before completing a recovery program there. He said he had “never actually looked at alcohol or drug abuse as a disease” and that “threw him for a loop.” William went on to write,

“Thank you for all the help and support that you have always given me and other Lamb Center guests, I just could not recognize and would not take hold of the life raft that you were throwing out to save me until I came to jail. Tell others my story and pray they will grab the Lamb Center raft to recovery.”
