In this time of the opioid epidemic entrapping so many of our loved ones, our webinar will seek to address the ways that members of a faith community can prepare to accompany families in their community captured by drug and alcohol addictive processes. As EIC's Marie Gallo Dyak mentioned in the prior webinar in this series: "It is the faith leaders we trust, and trust is very important when talking about addiction and treatment. Are faith leaders prepared with good information about treatment and recovery?" This preliminary preparation process for congregations is often overlooked with the result that the church’s efforts are at worst useless and at best shallow. We hope to reach those who will take the steps to prepare to go boldly into this much-needed work.  

 This is the last webinar of a four part series brought to you by the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA), with Co-Sponsorship from the American Association of Pastoral Counselors (AAPC), the Association for Clinical Pastoral Education (ACPE), the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence (NCADD), National Alliance for Drug Endangered Children (DEC), and with support from the Substance Abuse Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
