A journey to recovery

Mother and son tell their story of overcoming addiction

It was never something Martha Wegner thought would happen to her family. 

Her teenage son, David, became addicted to drugs, and she was forced to give him a “tough love” ultimatum: get treatment or get out.

“Most people say they could never do that, but we didn’t have any choice. There was nothing left for us to do,” Martha says. “He wasn’t getting the help he needed, and it was really causing havoc in our family.”

This moment was just one stop in David’s three-year battle with addiction. Now, Martha and David travel to area churches talking about their family’s struggle and how they overcame it.
