Church Releases Gut-Wrenching Video: Addict Jumps from Building, Shatters Bones, Rebuilds Life


In honor of National Addiction Recovery Month, the Mormon Channel is releasing a series of powerful and raw videos, which focus on the struggles and triumphs of those overcoming various addictions. Watch the first eleven videos here.

The 12-part seriesfocuses on the personal experience of 12 former addicts who share startlingly honest and real experiences of their fights to overcome drug, alcohol, food, sex, and pornography addictions.

Each video in the series, titled "12 Steps to Change," aligns with one of the 12 steps in the Church's addiction recovery program

This video is the final video in the series, which focuses on the story of Erik. After overdosing on drugs, Erik jumped from the third-story balcony of a building, shattering his pelvis, face, and arm. But Erik has found a way to turn his pain into a tool to help others find healing.
