Live my happy life
Many of Resam's friends have the habit of taking drugs. In one thought, Resam sank into the sea of poison for 15 years. Since then, Resam lived a chaotic life. His life was full of darkness and helplessness. Every day, he lived a life of walking dead, losing control of his actions and thoughts. Resam realized that he had only two choices. He either used drugs till death or sought "Reborn" after detoxification. Over the years, either forced or voluntarily, Resam went through detoxification in a drug rehabilitation center for three times. Unfortunately, soon after returning to the community, he felt difficult to resist the temptation and relapsed again. Community-based detoxification remained a great challenge for Resam.
In 2018, with the help of Yau Tsim Mong Family and Education Centre (YTMFESC), Resam was referred to a gospel drug rehabilitation center for treatment. Resam got a chance to know about Jesus Christ in the drug rehabilitation center and learned a lot of truth in his faith. In the process of rehabilitation, he felt cleansed both physically and mentally.
YTMFESC staff and Resam have been walking together on the road to detoxification. Counseling and support have been provided throughout various stages of treatment, making Resam feel safe and respected. For example, staff conducts fellowship with Resam and other roommates in the rehabilitation center during monthly visits. As time goes by, staff has built good relationship and trust with Resam through regular visits, and has been supporting him along the way. After completing the treatment, Resam has been actively participating in the activities and volunteer services of YTMFESC. He shares his own testimonies to those people who are still addicted to drugs during outreach. He wants them to change their life too, and be a good influence to others as well.
Now, Resam has successfully detoxed for three years. Apart from reconciling with his family, he also started a family and has a good balance between his career and family. Compared to the chaos and darkness of 15 years of life in drugs, Resam is now full of hope for the future and confidently treads the bright road.
