This Sunday, December 8th
9:30 a.m. Program: “Substance Abuse and Families: What Parents Need to Know About Prevention, Intervention, and Recovery” by Annas Lefort, Licensed Clinical Addiction Counselor, from DCCCA Inc.
Annas Lefort, a licensed clinical addiction counselor at DCCCA, Inc., will talk about how substance use often affects families. What can parents do to help prevent problematic substance use? How should concerned families intervene? Where can parents get help when needed? DCCCA began in Lawrence in 1974 as the “Douglas County Citizen’s Committee on Alcoholism.” Since then, it has expanded across Kansas, and addresses both alcohol and drug issues. Its website states that “each day represents an opportunity to provide new skills for living.”
11:00 a.m. Spiritual Celebration: “Peaceful Dark, Joyous Light: Sounds of the Seasons” Rev. Jill Jarvis with Worship Associate Julie Loring
