Freedom From Addiction was written specifically to meet the needs of Christians with addictive behavior in recovery. Many Christians are locked in a cycle of addiction, particularly in the areas of alcohol and drug abuse. Many have turned to 12-Step programs for help but have found the "higher power" undefined. We know that Jesus Christ is the Higher Power. In a positive, non-condemning way, Anderson provides an alternative model of recovery for substance and alcohol abusers a model that will also work for individuals struggling with other kinds of addictions. We are saints according to God's Word (Ephesians 1), and true freedom comes from realizing our identity in Christ.

Many Christians are locked in a cycle of addiction, particularly in the areas of alcohol and drug abuse. Many have turned to 12-Step programs for help. But, where is the incredible power of Christ in this process? In a positive, non-condemning way, Anderson provides an alternative model of recovery for substance and alcohol abusers, a model that will also work for individuals struggling with other kinds of addictions. The first half of Freedom from Addictions tells the unbelievable story of Mike and Julia Quarles, and how Mike overcame a debilitating addiction to alcohol. He achieved success by applying the principles that make up the central theme of Dr. Anderson's message: that we are saints according to God's word (Eph 1) and that true freedom comes from realizing o ur identity in Christ.
