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 seventh in the series, which focuses on the story of Holly. Holly seemed to have the perfect life—the perfect house, a good education, an athletic lifestyle. But inside, her drug addiction was eating her alive. After nearly taking her own life, Holly seeks help and finds it in the one source of lasting peace.
