What is the Addiction Awareness Workshop?
The purpose of this course is to offer information to help individuals and families whose lives have been affected by issues caused by the use of alcohol and other drugs.
The program consists of educational sessions which will provide understanding of addiction/alcoholism as a brain disease, treatment options, effects on others, 12-Step programs of recovery and the church’s response.
Why Is It Needed?
Substance abuse touches every community, especially with the current opiate epidemic. Statistics suggest that 66% of the population uses alcohol and/or other drugs. Of those individuals, 20% experience major life consequences resulting from abuse (e.g. drunk driving, health problems — just two of MANY problems) and 10% develop the disease of alcoholism/addiction. Every alcoholic/addict affects 4 to 5 other lives.
What Will You Learn?
During each FREE session, speakers will discuss relevant topics including:
- Addiction as a brain disease
- Effects of drinking/using on others
- Treatment and assessment tools
- 12 step programs of recovery
- Resources in the community
- Treatment costs
There is no cost for this program. Donations are welcome.
