Alcohol and drug addiction is at epidemic levels in our society. In recent years we’ve heard many tragic stories and seen overwhelming statistics about the rampant use of the highly addictive substance heroin throughout Northwest Ohio communities. This drug is considered one of the most damaging and deadliest drug addictions today; it ruins careers, it ruins families, it takes lives, and it cuts across all socio-economic lines. Tune in to find out how the Church is responding to this epidemic and what role faith-based interaction and treatment plays in addressing this critical issue. You will hear stories, experiences and perspectives from addicts and the treatment facilitators, doctors and counselors from congregations of the Northwestern Ohio Synod, ELCA and Lutheran Social Services of Northwest Ohio who helped them.
