Roots of Addiction Introduction: Part 1

Join us this week as we begin a new discussion on the topic of addiction…but not addiction as we would typically think. We will discuss other areas of addiction, such as food, social media, shopping, work, sex – areas that meet a “need” but can actually become an addiction in our lives, much like substances can. Today we will focus on setting a foundation for what addiction is and how it operates in individual’s lives. Join MercyTalk hosts, Melanie and Jen, with special guest, Brooke, as they unpack what addiction is and what it is not from a Christian perspective. We hope you will join us as we discuss:

  • A good base-line definition of addiction.
  • How addiction works and why it is such an issue in our culture.
  • Myths and misconceptions about addiction.
  • Practical steps in starting the process of overcoming addiction.
