Healthy Communities of Clinton County Coalition has a new community support group starting the first Thursday in November from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at St. Matthew called ‘A Better Life: Brianna’s Hope’.
This group is designed for anyone struggling with any addiction, or anyone who has been affected by addiction in their lives. It is open to all. No attendance requirement and individuals can come and go as they please.
We want to be the other choice, an opportunity “for a better life.” It is our goal to help you battle against addiction. Our approach is participant-driven, faith-based and compassion-filled. We offer a judgment-free safe zone where you can be honest and transparent and will not be condemned for doing so. Understand that the others attending can relate to where you are coming from and how hard it is to climb out of the hole you have found yourself in. These fellow strugglers will soon become your friends and family.
Our door is open, you need only walk through it. There are no attendance requirements. Whether we are your first choice or your last hope, we believe we can make a difference in your life.
“Please, Lord, look after me and my family. Please help me to do the right thing and to show people that I am not a bad person inside or out and help me Lord to get through this disappointment again and know I make mistakes but who doesn’t. I don’t do it to do wrong. I do it cuz I feel I have no other choice. I want a better life, Lord, I do. Please help me. Do to me as what you feel is best. I surrender to you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
