News headlines continue to highlight dire consequences related to abuse of alcohol and other drugs reminding us of the importance of the ongoing search for effective solutions. As parents or concerned loved ones, we often reflect on our personal struggles to either reduce the risk of our children or other family members from becoming victims or, in fact, to cope with an already existing substance abuse problem in the family. St. Malachi’s Samaritan Ministry invites you to a virtual program Abuse of Alcohol and Other Drugs: The Impact on the Family on Saturday, November 4th from 1:00 to 3:30PM via ZOOM to educate you and provide valuable resources in helping you to understand your role in trying to eliminate the consequences of America’s #1 public health problem. Topics to be covered include: Alcohol & Other Drugs: The Problem; What Families Should Know, Understanding What Alcohol & Other Drugs Can Do to the Brain, and Finding Helpful Resources.
The program is free, but we would appreciate donations to St Malachi’s Mother Teresa Ministry, which provides crucial aid during times of extreme need (rent; utilities; transportation) to keep individuals on the verge of homelessness from ending up on the street. You will be able to make a contribution when you register. Thank you in advance for your generosity!
