praying handsThe Salvation Army’s Clitheroe Center in Anchorage, Alaska provides professional drug and alcohol addiction treatment for adults through culturally-relevant, evidence-based programs.

Cecily is a current resident at Clitheroe who’s not only struggling with addiction, her husband is dying, and her son is at home taking care of himself. Her addiction was so powerful that it was ruining her life and the life of those around her.

The staff is amazed at her transformation and calls her “incredible.”

While in treatment, Cecily wrote an allegory about addiction – published with her permission below – which describes it as a torch, passed from prior generations, with the power to ruin or to heal.

Please keep Cecily, her husband, and their son in your prayers.
