“I found the stop of me.” 

All those are the phrases that CareCenter Ministries Pastor Ty Cotter applied to explain the moment he determined to search for support for his habit to medication 10 years in the past.  

Cotter, who set up Mountain Home’s chapter of CareCenter Ministries, operates along with his brother Dean Cotter and other addicts to help these who have arrived at the lowest place in their daily life.  

The function they do is demanding, demanding not only blood, sweat, and tears but a willingness to have faith in people that culture normally labels as untrustworthy.  

It requires religion. Religion that the broken can be made complete. Trust that the lost can seek out out and obtain intent in their lives.  

Ty Cotter, pastor for CareCenter Ministries in Mountain Home, shows of the men's home's work board. The men's home is run in a "military fashion," with each moment of the day being planned in advance.

“I came from 17 several years of addiction,” Cotter reported. “Being in difficulties all of the time. In and out of county jail, jail, all of those matters. And so, at age 29, I like to call it the place I discovered the end of myself. I did that minimal cry out for assistance, you know, from relatives. And they pointed me to a ministry in Dallas, Texas that they stated would modify my existence due to the fact it was religion-based mostly if I would just embrace it.”
