Upcoming M.I.N.D. Institute Event Regarding Substance Abuse

A day-long conference for clergy and congregant leaders on substance-abuse issues will be held in the auditorium at the UC Davis M.I.N.D. Institute in Sacramento on January 13.

The conference planners promise, in a flyer, that attendees will receive “the latest information and strategies on how to educate and provide hope to individuals and families suffering from the impact of addiction to alcohol and substance abuse.”

The conference objectives, listed in the flyer, are to …
  • raise awareness of how addiction to alcohol and other drugs affect individuals and their families.
  • discuss the role of clergy and congregations in offering information, hope and recovery support for those affected by alcohol and drug abuse.
  • review core competencies for clergy and congregational leaders in understanding and addressing alcohol and drug abuse.
Prime sponsors of the event are Clinical Pastoral Services, UC Davis Health System, Interfaith Services Bureau, the State of California Department of Alcohol and Drug Programs, and Sacramento County Alcohol and Drug Services.

The Sacramento Homeless blog thanks Rev. Danny Fisher [who blogs Rev. Danny Fisher] for his timely information. SacHo will be following this story with hope that a great many clergy who care about homelessness in our great metropolis will be attendees at the conference.
