The Samaritan Counseling Center held our first ever community conference on January 18th. Our topic was unfortunately—and tragically—very timely. We discussed the region’s Opiate Epidemic with an audience of clergy. Speakers from across disciplines offered strategies and techniques to help those addicted or families of those addicted. Resources were shared and insights were offered. A recovering addict shared an inspiring message of redemption and hope. Ultimately, the day provided the group with a renewed spirit in ministering to those affected by the scourge of addiction.
Another conference is planned for this coming March.
