Addictions :: LDS addiction recovery video: Holly's story about drug addiction

In the seventh video of "12 Steps to Change," a 12-video series produced by the Mormon Channel and LDS Family Services, a woman named Holly shares her struggle with a drug addiction and the important role humility played in her recovery.

Holly is one of 12 individuals featured in the series who discuss their addictions and the hope they found through the LDS Addiction Recovery Program.

In the video, Holly explains that she threw away everything in her life for drugs. She eventually turned to her brother for help and embraced the seventh step of the recovery program, humility.

"I asked Heavenly Father to remove my shortcomings," Holly said in the video. "Something very, very powerful and spiritual and sacred happened. I felt my Father in Heaven's arms around me, and I felt his love, and I knew that everything was going to be OK."

The Mormon Channel promoted the video Monday and will promote another video from the series each day during the first two weeks in September, which is National Recovery Month. Each video focuses on one step of the LDS Addiction Recovery Program.
