It has becoming more and more clear that addiction is a huge issue that affects our communities. Recently, several neighbors have passed away from alcohol shock, been arrested for drug use, and still others have expressed a desire to stop using substances.
This past Saturday, September 11, the Thai Peace Foundation and The Well, an organization working with women coming out of bars met to discuss the issue of addiction which affects so many of the people and families we serve.
In the discussion, we began to collaborate on how we can bring more community-based recovery options to our work, especially looking at 12-step recovery models in Thai and training Thai leaders. We’ll keep you posted on progress and additional partnerships we form!!
