The Naked Truth Project – A Christian Charity’s response to a social issue

How do you cope with addiction?

What is a Christian response to addiction?

In his letter to the Christians in Galatia Saint Paul wrote:

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.

This verse speaks of a freedom away from the things of the world that can enslave us. This includes addiction of any type.

The Naked Truth Project is a Christian organisation that works with young people who are trapped in a spiral of addiction.
