All our congregations include people touched by addiction, but few of us have been trained to support individuals and families on the long journey to recovery.  This workshop will increase your ability to assist your congregants and perhaps even save lives.  Topics: Addiction 360°: the relationship between addiction and the brain, trauma, and the social context.  Helping family members.  Understanding recovery; the role of religion and spirituality.  $60 fee includes lunch.  Enrollment limited to 24.  Presenters: Edward Schreiber, Director of Substance Use Services, ServiceNet Northampton and Greenfield; the Rev. Susan Grant Rosen.  For questions and to register, email
