Today’s Opioid Crisis | November 2, 2016
Trinity Lutheran Church in Lansdale hosted an important conversation about “Today’s Opioid Crisis: What can we do as a community?”
We had a panel that brought the following perspectives:
- Powerpoint presentation by Executive Director, Kim Rubenstein
- Justin, a young man in recovery from opioid addiction, shared his journey toward a life in recovery.
- Donna, a mom who has found strength and support by reaching out to other parents who have been down the same road.
- Jill Adams, SFW is the Director of Adolescent Partial Programming at Onward Behavioral Health/Rehab After Work in Lansdale. Jill talked about warnings signs and what she has observed through her career in juvenile justice, as well as her current role in the treatment field.
“Having the panel who each represented a different role in addiction was particularly helpful.”
“The support is so important.”
“I appreciated learning about the warning signs.”
“The presentation was concise, but hugely informative!”
“A poignant message: ‘Bondage of self is lifted.'”
“I loved hearing Justin’s experience, strength and hope.”
