This reflective evening will explore the epidemic of addiction in our society and our responsibility as followers of Christ in responding to those who are suffering. It is an educational, informational, and inspirational evening that is intended for everyone, including the afflicted and their families and friends, counselors, nurses, priests, deacons, etc., those in the criminal justice system, educators, and anyone who would like to learn more to become part of a solution to the current epidemic.
Each week covers one aspect of the bio-psycho-social-spiritual model of addiction.
This week’s focus is on some of the psychological theories that perhaps best explain the use of substances. Although the full benefit is achieved if you attend all four evenings, each evening is an independent presentation. Please join us even if you cannot attend all four evenings.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
