My name is Jesse Rowland and I am in long-term recovery. What that means for me is I have not used alcohol or other drugs since 1-1-2016 and because of that, I have turned my life around and started a Faith Based recovery meeting called 417 New Life Entertainment.

 

I use to bring dope to the table. Now I bring hope to the table.  The first drug I ever used was Marijuana at age 9.  My drug use progressed to Meth and Alcohol

 

I knew I had a problem when I woke up every day and the first thing I wanted to do was get high before anything. My life was unstable.  I was nothing but a lowlife drug addict, dope dealing convict.

 

What helped me the most was surrendering to God and accepting the fact that I had a substance abuse problem.

 

Recovery has changed my life.  I am now a positive part of the community. I help others out and bring people to the lord. I plant the seed of spirituality and recovery and I am blessed to see the growth of others. I love people now.

 

Today, because of recovery, I have a strong relationship with Jesus.  I fellowship with others in recovery. I do service work and work my steps and go to meetings.  I started my own faith-based recovery meeting at the Springfield Recovery Community Center every Friday night. 

 

Love is the biggest tool to help others find recovery.  I feel being loved on can open people’s eyes to the truth about addiction and that recovery is possible.
