Join us in praying the Novena for Addiction Recovery!

Many people become addicted to harmful substances or activities throughout their lives. Addictions in our own lives or in the lives of those we love can cause a lot of difficulty. Addiction to a harmful substance or activity can interfere with relationships, with daily life, and even with our spiritual lives. 

It can be very hard to recover from addiction. True recovery from addiction to harmful substances or activities takes dedication and determination, as well as help from others.

But to recover from addiction, we also need God’s grace. God, in His mercy and love, wishes to give us the help we need in every difficult area of our lives. You can ask Him to help you or someone you know on a recovery journey, to give the grace and virtue needed to persevere in the difficult journey of addiction recovery.

Whatever addiction you or a loved one are struggling with, let’s pray the Novena for Addiction Recovery to ask for God’s help!

Why Pray the Novena for Addiction Recovery?

You can pray this novena if you are struggling with addiction and are trying to recover. You can pray this novena for help if you are just beginning an addiction recovery journey or if you have been trying to recover from addiction for a long time.

You can also pray this novena for a friend or family member who is struggling with addiction. You can use this novena to seek help for a friend or family who is at the start of their recovery journey, or if they have been trying to recover for a long time. Or you can pray this novena to seek help for a friend or family member who has not yet acknowledged that they have an addiction problem and that they are in need of help.
