Walls of witness
Houses of god take 12-steps in creating family wellness in the face of drug and alcohol abuse
Unfortunately, most of our common knowledge about drugs—to include alcohol—has little or no ability to protect our faith community. All are at huge risk because we don’t even know what we don’t know about drugs today. “Common” drugs such as, marihuana, cocaine, heroin, and LSD have worse consequences than before. New drugs like “O.C.s,” “Roxies”, “Fruit Salad”, “Pharming”, ”Salvia”, “K-2”, “Spice”, and “Backpacking” are foreign to those of us who are expected to protect our kids. Based on your knowledge now could you help guide the members of your faith community either by preventing the use of or dealing with the ramifications of the use of these drugs?
Bob will talk about the old drugs we used to use that have been revitalized and the new drugs that most adults have never heard of….. Are we winning the drug war?
What is happening in our Middle Schools, High Schools, and Colleges?
Who are the drug users?
