Providing SUD Recovery to Church Members and Local Community
The presenters will describe how their church became aware of the need to address substance abuse in their congregation. Having a passion for serving their local community, in addition to its members, the church is taking big strides to expand its role in recovery later this year. The presenters, one of which holds a key leadership role at the church in this effort, will detail the need for substance abuse recovery in the congregation, the church’s role in de-stigmatizing the issues, and how the church’s new initiative will address the issue on a larger scale than in the past.
