The Disney Channel series “That’s So Raven” star Orlando Brown testifies how he found hope in the Christian church as he battles with drug addiction.

“That’s So Raven” actor

Actor and rapper Orlando Brown, popularly known for his role as Eddie Thomas on the Disney Channel series “That’s So Raven,” has had a very public struggle with drug addiction and mental health. Eddie’s battle with drugs first made the headlines in February 2016 when he was arrested in Torrance, California.

“I went through a lot. I experimented with crystal meth, with weed. I didn’t know what I was doing. I was addicted to the internet. All kinds of stuff,” he said about his battle with addiction.

Eddie Brown

There have been a few tough years for the 32-years-old star. Recently, God provided a means for Eddie’s healing through Rise Church in Abilene, Texas.

“My fiancee told me about this place and when I came it was amazing,” he said. “I had a blast. These brothers accepted me for who I am.”

Rise Discipleship

On Monday, he revealed that he is looking forward to graduating from Rise Discipleship. It is a free 6-month in-patient recovery program for men struggling with addiction and other life-controlling issues.

“We help not only those who struggle with drugs and alcohol, but also those who battle depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Every RISE student will be given a biblical foundation that will assist in character building and the leadership development to approach life in a new light,” the Rise Discipleship website explains.

Testimony

At a recent fundraising event broadcasted on Facebook Live, Eddie testified about his current journey to recovery. Jubal Elrod said during the event that Eddie has been a leader while in the facility.

“He’s completely turned around. He got on this like in his third week, hit it like a man. Now he’s leading classes. He’s actually overseeing discipline and teaching other brothers how to get through it. I’m super proud of you man, proud of you Orlando,” Jubal said.

Prayer

The “That’s So Raven” actor also emphasized that prayer was an important part of his journey to healing.

“Prayer is so essential especially in cases like these where we have a whole bunch of men come off the street and they are doing their thing to change,” he said.
