  Addiction conversation at Exeter Christian Reform Church
Lost and Found: Alcoholism and addiction are a relentless disease that affects many people we know and care about. One of the tragic aspects of alcoholism and addiction is that both the families and the addict affected often don't get the help they need because it is a subject that we keep secret. Secrets keep us from getting the help we need. Secrets keep us isolated and alone. Our hope is that this evening helps start the conversation, and to let people know they are not alone, that there are resources available for the families and the addicted, and that there is hope. Please come to the Exeter CHristian Reformed Church (332 Huron St W) on January 30, 2015 at 7:00pm for this informational evening.
