For many, the holiday season is not a time of joy, but a time of violence, fear, unpredictability, grief, or hopelessness. These feelings often predominate in families affected by addictions and mental illness.
The PNWD Addictions Ministry Project helps congregations understand and respond to addictions and mental health concerns – apparent or hidden – as part of supportive family ministry and effective pastoral response. If you would like more information on the program, check out the Addictions Ministry resources.
If you need to locate an addictions or mental health facility near you, please go to the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration locator.
