What is the Samaritan Ministry Program
The purpose of this training is to provide individuals with the tools to help sub-stance abusers and their families who are experiencing problems in their lives due to alcohol and/or other drug use-related issues. The program consists of educational sessions, which will increase participants’ awareness of the possible consequences associated with alcohol and other drug use, deepen understanding of the brain disease of alcohol and other drug addiction, and strengthen the church’s ability to minister to individuals who are experiencing problems related to the use of alcohol and other drugs.
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, 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
There is no cost for this program. Donations are welcome.
