Drug Court


 

I have been a volunteer at our local Drug Court program for over one year. I have had the pleasure of having 3 different groups during this time. I asked each group 4 questions concerning our ministry. These are their actual testimonies.


1. What was your first thought when you were told that I was going to be reading stories to you about the journey of addiction?


*I thought it was a great idea, especially involving addiction.

  *Very interesting.

*I first thought, no big deal. It sounds corny.

*I thought it was going to be a piece of crap.

*I thought it was going to be a joke. Couldn't help but laugh. 

*Another waste of time.

*I was a little unsure, but after you had our class I REALLY enjoyed it.

*I thought we were going back to kindergarden.

*I thought it was going to be different.

*I really didn't think the journey of addiction was going to be anything,

         but it  turned out good.  

*It was cool. It's always interesting to hear about someone else's addiction.

*Thank God for a CHANGE.I learn more in these groups.

*My thoughts were that I will be able to hear the life of addiction from another 

             view.

 

2.  How do you feel about them now since you have heard several of them?

 

*I think it's the journey of addiction.

*I love them. Very inspiring.

*I've only heard one, but I really enjoyed it.

*They are very interesting and almost everything hits home. I like the way

         Charles teaches them very much.

*I think Brother Charles is doing a great job and I get a lot out of his stories.

*I can tell that you've been down the road and I could relate to your stories.

*I appreciate the time and effort that goes into it.

*I like them.

*I really get alot out of them. I love them.

*I think it's interesting and we can learn from it.

*I like them. I see myself in them.

*I like them. The stories are real good to listen to.

*Good.

*I feel they are very relative to life and are learning mechanism.

 

3. Do the cards help you in your discussion session?

 

*Yes, Some of the cards show how you feel.

*Yes.

*I enjoy them and thought they were very therapuetic.

*Yes. You never know what somebody is going to make of them.

*Very interesting.

*Yes. I can't explain how, but they do help.

*Yes, it helps me remember some of the things I've done and the people 

 I've hurt.

*They help me relate to things going on in my life and see them from a 

 different perspective.

*Makes me pay more attention to them.

*Yes, it helps you find out things you didn't know was in our selves.

*I think they do.

*Yes, because of the view points and different perspectives of the cards. 

 

4. Is our program helping you?

 

*Yes, it's kept me clean and gave me the tools to do so.

*Yes, most definitely.

*Yes.

*Yes, very much.

*Yes. Anything that reminds a person what life in addiction is and lets

 them see now how they have changed helps alot.

*Slowly but surely.

*Yes, alot.

*Yes. so far I'm only in 2 weeks and I love it.
