With Returning Guest Rick D'Andrea

Balancing Act of Life – ADDICTION – Part 2, With Rick D’Andrea


Presented by your host  Emilie DeAngelo

Welcome back to Part Two of our addiction talks with Rick D’Andrea!

Mary Margaret and Rick dive deep into faith after addiction. The beginning, middle and the after! In case you missed last week’s here is a quick bio on him! ‘ He has been to hell and back. He has been given such a gift of the Spirit! Without any Schooling, seminary or any formal training! With a life of destructiveness, he turned his pain into passion and now helps men and women overcome addiction.

Ten years ago, people would cross the street so they didn’t even have to see him now people ask for him by name! He shares his stories with self-destruction and finding his faith with us and lets us into the real part of addiction we don’t talk about as a society. He has allowed God in his life to teach him, lessons through life so he could teach others how to save themselves like he was saved! He works in shelters. churches, ministries and other places!

He has seen it all!

Taken from Rick’s Linked In …

“My God My God how you have changed me. Thank you. I would love to make a living at this but will wait to see what happens. I would not trade this life for any amount of money though!! Never!!!

I was laid off after 30 years in casino. What a blessing! It’s where my heart is, helping the sick and suffering of addictions. So, my brothers and sisters will lift me up until then thank you all. My journey in His hands has been so amazing and i have learned that even though I end up in the valley sometimes that not much grows on top of the mountain. It’s cold, icy no trees or fruit its always in the valley where vegetation and moisture and trees and fruits are. AMEN! So, the valley is where I’ve learned to be strong and depend on HIM!!!

Wow what a revelation that has and is going on in my life..I’m so grateful for the hard times in the valley for when I am weak I have found HE is strong in me. LOVE, LIVE, LAUGH, and Praise Him for everything!!! AMEN!”
