GOOD CATHOLIC. GREAT STORIES.The Spiritual Side of Fighting Addiction by Keaton Douglas

If you know someone who has a problem with addiction, you know what a terrible cross it can be. “Much of the addict’s suffering is spiritual,” says Keaton Douglas, head of the “I, Thirst” program which is based at the Shrine of St. Joseph in Stirling, New Jersey. The initiative seeks to give people in recovery the spiritual tools they need to stay sober and lead the faith-based fight against substance abuse disorders, especially the ever-growing opioid addiction.

Today we speak to Keaton Douglas and learn what brought her to become the head of this program. Keaton lovingly and wholeheartedly believes in the innate dignity of the human person and in this interview with her we see her passion for helping those who struggle with addictions.
