"Make your heart the strongest muscle that you've got."

Those words are part of rapper IN-Q's "Addiction Poem," which narrates the video above. The powerful three-minute clip was posted to YouTube by Burning Tree, a long-term treatment program for substance abuse.

The video contains a universal message of hope -- a reminder that we're not alone and that there's always a light at the end of the tunnel.
