    Avenues to Wholeness: Understanding Addiction

    "Avenues to Wholeness: Understanding Addiction" Webinar
    November 14, 2019
    9:00 p.m. Eastern/6:00 p.m. Pacific

     
    Addictive behaviors are used to help us manage stress, negative emotions, and difficult social or relational experiences. For women, the challenges of multiple demands, role stress, body image, or trauma may also lead to addictive behaviors as coping strategies. During this webinar, we will explore the dynamics of addiction as a progressive condition that begins as a solution and ends as our biggest problem. But even in the midst of this problem, we are not separated from God. Jesus knows why we started these behaviors and will walk with us into newness of life.  

    Join us for this one-hour free webinar. Webinar will be recorded and available on our website if you’re not able to join us.
