i was recruited to help addiction recovery efforts.6 yr AA veteran. I assist in small groups leadership and prayer. i share what strength and hope and fears i have and how i overcome through my walk with God. celebrate recovery is used as a loose framework.more strict adherence to the framework and study would be beneficial.signage at the church ,exterior, to promote this ministry as addiction recovery/Thursdays may help increse attendance.a more formal hierachy of sponsorship could be investigated..love the meal before although i never partake its a good bonding and integrating of offenders into a family setting. this program meshes with a stronger AA for my sobriety.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
christamas gifts and parties for families of inmates , support and hope for ex offenders and their familes ,work in side prisons to offer hope and prayer and a spiritual answer to life in prison ,recovery stories from addicts
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
analyze the name tag situation and its function
more community outreach and outside functions(picnic,bounce house)
Volunteer & attended thursday nights and counseled addicts.
