Can Prayer Help An Alcoholic Stop Drinking?

October 15th, 2010 – Posted by James W. West M.D. F.A.C.S. in Counseling


Question:  Do prayers help in trying to get an alcoholic to stop drinking?

Answer:  Sometimes, it seems, they are the only things that do.  Hope, and the internal spiritual strengths that respond to prayer, can sustain the person who has to stand by and watch an alcoholic tragedy unfold.
I would like you to call the treatment center in your community and make arrangements to get into their family treatment program.  Also, keep praying.
