addiction to connection

Glen Scammell

When I first got connected to Jericho, I was in a desperate situation with nowhere to live, when an old friend, Doug Sprunt, recommended I seek help with them. I had hit bottom with no money, no job, no car and not a lot of hope.

After entering the program, I quickly learned how dishonest I had been with myself, and how angry and disconnected I was from everything. Yet through being a part of something bigger than myself (community, relationship with God, connection), I start to feel belonging and “part-of”. Where I still struggle is with my pride and my self-will.

For those new to recovery, I would say that an open, honest relationship with Jesus is the best high. And if we give God a little, He will take care of the rest.

I'm grateful that I have been reunited with my daughter, and looking forward in my recovery,  I hope to continue building honest relationships. I love that I am intelligent, technical, a good listener, creative, gregarious and have a good sense of humour.
