Great video on how addiction effects so many more than just the one who is addicted.

Cannon County inmates working though the Life Recovery Bibles.  The jail administrator, (Ed Brown), said, "Since the jail was built in 1993, you're the first one to offer any kind of recovery program here".
  There are now several churches, several different denominations, working together to start two Celebrate Recovery meetings.  Cannon County currently has no AA, NA, or Celebrate Recovery meetings.  Because of Lifeline, they will now have these programs offered in the jail and in the community!

RECOVERY SUPPORT ORGANIZATION OF THE MONTH...ANCHOR POINT FOUNDATION

Each month we will be doing a feature story on recovery support organizations....
This Month ...... Anchor Point Foundation

Last night I visited Anchor Point where they meet every Tuesday night,6 pm at Peerless Road Church of God. Director and Founder Russell Coffey invited me out along with special guest Judge Amy Reedy and her husband Bill Reedy along with State Representative Dan Howell  to share what they are doing in the community each week. The meeting starts with  a great meal and then followed by news and updates of people in recovery. Some weeks they have testimonials of how people and families are being transformed.

This night however, I was in for a real treat as I listened to Judge Reedy share with us her experiences on the bench and dealing with addiction issues. Judge Reedy started out with a Bible passage  in 1 Peter 5:8, reminding us to be sober minded and watchful as our adversary the devil roams around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Judge Reedy spoke about encouragement and how she is encouraged when shes able to use every tool she has at her disposal. Tools such as rehabs and treatment centers, she named several including Anchor Point, CADAS, Women at the Well and many others. Reedy stated that over the last several years on the bench the one common denominator that she has seen that truly changes people for the better is their faith in Jesus Christ. She said "Jesus is  the one word that came up over and over" when she asked clients what made the difference in their lives. She said she looks at their faces and listens to  their stories and treats them as people, not cases or numbers or seeing a broken policy. "Stay encouraged" she said, by following the great commandment and the great commission. Loving God and others and carrying the message to the ends of the earth.Also looking for the treasures during trials and tribulations while exercising our faith muscle. Judge Reedy says she sees success not just  people in a  revolving door cycle. She sees faith, hope and expectations. They are good people in a bad place. No one ever  talks about the people that we help,, its not news worthy. People just talk about the bad stuff.



I for one, would like to keep talking about the good stuff. Faith, hope and expectations of a greater recovering community. It really seems like Anchor Point Foundation is doing just what is needed in Bradley County to build and grow recovering  communities by engaging the community with people in recovery.

The Anonymous People - Official Film Trailer from Greg Williams on Vimeo.
The Lifeline Project is established to reduce stigma related to the disease of addiction and increase community support for policies that provide for treatment and recovery services. Project approaches will include establishment of evidenced based addiction and recovery programs as well as educational presentations for civic groups, faith based organizations and community leaders to increase understanding of the disease of addiction and support for recovery strategies.


It takes courage and strength to face up to any type of addiction, whether it’s alcohol, drugs, nicotine, gambling, the internet, or self-injury. But no matter how bad the addiction or how powerless you feel, there is hope and help available. Don’t give up, even if you’ve tried and failed before. You don’t have to wait until you hit rock bottom; you can make a change at any time.
Recovery is a process, and there’s bound to be some bumps in the road. But you can overcome your addiction by learning how to cope in ways that are constructive rather than destructive to yourself and others.

             We encourage you to begin your road to recovery today.
