O blessed Lord, you ministered to all who came to you:
Look with compassion upon all who through addiction have lost their health and freedom.
Restore to them the assurance of your unfailing mercy;
remove from them the fears that beset them; strengthen them in the work of their recovery;
and to those who care for them, give patient understanding and persevering love.
Amen. (Adapted from the Book of Common Prayer - 56)
