Addictions Workshop

April 27 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

For those that are addicted, and those who try to help them, there is a struggle and yet, there is hope.

Addiction is a disease of the brain that impacts every facet of life, often times our spiritual life.  Helping people get centered or re-centered on that aspect of their lives is a key to recovery.

This informative workshop will look at the

  • Origins of addictions and the brain’s neurobiology
  • Eight things that are impacted by addiction in people’s lives and things they can do to help the brain repair itself
  • Best Practices on what helps and what does not
  • What are good boundaries and how recovery is an ongoing process
  • The soul and the impact of addiction

Presented by The Rev. Stephen Rodgers, LPC, LMFT. Steve is an Episcopal priest and a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist.  He has worked with addiction for 40 years and has worked at an addiction/psychiatric hospital as a therapist for the past 7 years. He authored a book on addiction with the Medical Director of the hospital, Dr. Brian Esparza.
