Света через год после прохождения программыMy name is Sveta. I am now 23 years old. I spent six of those years in a narcotic hell. I thought I was so cool when ...

I smoked my first cigarette, then a joint, then tried the first track of heroin… And once I got that syringe in my hand, I did not let go of it for a stretch of three months; at this point, I became genuinely frightened … I immediately began looking for help, but no one could help me. The endless hospitals, both paid and free, diagnosed me to death with treatment plans and psychological programs, but nothing helped.

В день поступления в реабилитационный центрI didn’t know what to do and I went to my mother’s. When she saw me she wanted to slam the door on me; I had caused her a lot of pain. But I begged her to help me. My mother said that nothing could help me anymore - that we had tried everything, but she also said that that day she had gotten an announcement about a Christian center and if they agreed to accept me, she would take me there. At that moment I was willing to do anything. My mother called and talked to them, but they told her that they would be able to tell me whether I could go to the center or not in the morning. My mother’s friend didn’t want me to spend the night inside since I was all dirty and beaten up, so my mother carried out a mattress and two old coats for me, and I lay down at the top of the stairs.

Светлана с мужем и ребенком. Осень 2007.While I was lying in this bed my mind began to wander – how did I reach this point: lying like a bum in the doorway. In the morning we went to my mom’s workplace, and from there my mom called the center and they said that they could take me that day. When I was in total despair, God himself reached out his hand of help to me. After staying four days at the center, God touched me and I repented.

Now it has been almost two years since God changed my life. Now I have a darling husband, my son Vanechka, new friends, and a new life. God gave all of this to me. HE CAN GIVE THIS TO YOU TOO!
