Addiction & Recovery 101


Welcome to Addiction & Recovery 101, Units 1-3!

Addiction is now the number one public health issue in the United States. Addiction can tear apart individuals and families and destroy lives. As Christians, God wants us to be His instruments of healing and restoration for those caught in the chains of addiction. The good news is that with today’s incredible medical and scientific advances that have refined the way we understand addictions, and with the application of spiritual transformation and renewal, we can offer real hope. This comprehensive course includes five units, each containing 6 lessons, complete with worktext and exams.
