CEASe will be meeting Thursday, May 5, NOTE TIME CHANGE of 1-2 pm, at the COLLINS FAMILY CENTER, after
National Day of Prayer on Courthouse Lawn
Abuse of alcohol and illicit drugs is costly to our Nation, exacting more than $417 billion annually in costs related to crime, lost work productivity and health care. It is estimated that less than 1% of the people that would benefit from services related to drugs and alcohol abuse actually receive help.
For many, asking for help and seeking recovery from an alcohol or drug problem turns out to be the best decision of their lives. The benefits of recovery are not limited to the individual; a person’s recovery benefits everyone, including family, friends and community. For those seeking recovery, The Progress House offers a long-term, 12-step oriented, peer run social model recovery program for men.
For fifty-four years they have been providing transitional housing, counseling, and a sober living environment for men who struggle with alcoholism and drug addiction. Their residents learn how to work together to recover from substance use disorders so they can re-enter society with a new approach to life.
Find out HOW from Darrell Mitchell, the Director of Outreach with the Progress House. He will be speaking at the Thursday CEASe Meeting. Please feel free to bring your own lunch. CEASE TREATMENT AND PREVENTION COMMITTEE CHAIRS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO PRESENT THEIR COMMITTEE REPORTS AFTER THE BUSINESS PART OF THE MEETING.
