[Insert story title]

After another “episode,” her father called a friend of his, a southern Baptist preacher from Arkansas, who told both Dorothy and her father that she was plagued by “alcohol demons.”  Alcohol was one of the devil’s tools that allowed the demons a stronger hold on her psyche; that’s what the preacher told Dorothy, and is what Dorothy told me.  So working together with her Christian therapist and an Evangelical exorcist, the two helped cast out Dorothy’s alcohol demons.  She told me that she actually felt their claws releasing her through the scars in her arms.
