The mentality and behavior of drug addicts and alcoholics is wholly irrational until you understand that they are completely powerless over their addiction and unless they have structured help, they have no hope.” – Russell Brand

the Pipe & the Pulpit

The Pipe and the Pulpit took me twenty-five years to write and get published. I had no idea the sweat and tears it would take before the final product manifested itself. There are some personal aspects that are revealed in the book that could not be told until I had a certain amount of recovery. The foundation upon which anything is built must be firm in order for it to stand. I am confident that the experiences shared will open the eyes of the reader to what can happen to addicts and alcoholics.

BUILDING A support

There are untold numbers of Americans who suffer from the disease of addiction unknowingly and Hope Alive Outreach is dedicated to educating all persons , especially families about this epidemic problem in our country.We advocate the use of Spiritual principles found in 12 Step Programs as well as faith based organizations like the church, the temple, etc. to address this Spiritual problem. Addiction is defined as " obsessive , compulsive behavior".  We address all types of addictions, but zero in on drugs and alcohol which are killing God's people in record numbers.
