The Rev. Winn Henderson said those who read and follow his book "Freedom from Addiction 3" can often successfully break everything from opioid dependence to alcoholism to overspending.

"I've put in over 30 years researching this problem, and I know from my research the addiction problem is getting worse," said Henderson, who is also a medical doctor. "It's not getting better."

"I wanted to be Scarface, like the movies, and sell as many drugs as possible and had done some of them myself, " recalled 27-year-old Corey Frady.

He said he read every page of Henderson's book.

Henderson, of Jackson County, wrote that addicts must want to get well, believe they can recover and put in lots of work toward self improvement.

"When your self-esteem is increased, the addictions go away," insisted Henderson.

"You can become a new man if you want it because of Christ," said Frady, who has found new purpose and aspires to be a minister to inmates.

Henderson added, "My life is dedicated to try to help people have a better life and not die earlier than they would have otherwise."

It's a perspective from an emergency physician turned author, minister and counselor.
