Josh’s Story (2016)

In 2013, I was at risk of being homeless and as a last resort my family doctor referred me to ICH. I was severely depressed and anxious. I had frequent crying spells. My relationship with my father was strained; I was not able to maintain a job or housing. So I moved into a private room at ICH and things started to change. Being in a clean environment, helped me to deal with my issues rather than bury them with drugs or alcohol. I was using for about 15 yrs on and off. Later on, God helped me to quit smoking cigarettes and video game addiction. I was playing with video games for about 10 hrs a day. After entrance to ICH, I started to attend church regularly and participate with group sessions at ICH. I was invited to worship with the team at a local church and this gave me a sense of belonging. At ICH, I learned to budget my money, accept responsibility and set my priorities in order. I am now employed and I receive a disability pension. This enables me to pay for my food and room independently, give to my church, sponsor a child in a poor country and I have savings. God is so good and He provided for me when I accepted His help. I’ve moved on and God has given me a room with a Christian family near my church. Thank you God!
