Addiction affects most of us, either personally or through someone we know. It has a major and increasing impact on our communities and nation.
Drug, alcohol and other addictions invariably result in physical and mental health problems, relationship and family breakdown, poverty, debt, homelessness and unemployment. For some this leads to violence, criminality, imprisonment, hopelessness and early death. Fear, guilt, shame and denial stop many from seeking help.
Recovery Communities aims to help Churches provide effective support for people and families struggling with addictions. To match compassion with competence.
