As you can see from the video above, Eric’s entire outlook on the 12-step program, a Higher Power, and recovery have changed drastically all because he finally surrendered to the work and admitted fully he was an alcoholic. It works if you work it! Eric is well respected in The Lake Shore Retreat and the recovery community. Eric’s connection with his Higher Power continues to grow on a daily basis and it’s evident he has accepted spiritual help.
Eric is now a Phase 2 resident and actively going on commitments and working his twelfth step which is “Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.” The drastic change we’ve seen in Eric is directly due to the spiritual solution we offer at The Lake Shore Retreat.
