Oklahoma Mother Thankful To God For Helping Son With Recovery From Addiction

Patti Mellow knows how helpless her son’s drug addiction made her feel. When Spencer Mellow ended up in the hospital after overdosing on mouthwash and over-the-counter pills, his mother knew something had to give.
“I thought he was going to die,” Mellow said, recalling how her son looked lying in the hospital bed. “That’s when I gave up and gave it to God…Spencer had to decide if he was going to get sober. He had to feel the spirituality. I couldn’t do that for him.”
Spencer Mellow listened to his mother and entered a residential drug treatment program. He has now been sober for the past three years and acknowledges that his Christian faith played a significant role in his recovery.
