On Sunday morning, October 20, 2019 at 9:10 AM, St. Edward’s Episcopal Church will be holding a very informative and relevant presentation by Doug Cwienk, a Certified Family Recovery Specialist, on the Opioid Crisis. The event will take place in the parish hall at St. Edward’s.
Doug is a co-founder of a support group for families dealing with addiction called, “Storm Riders.” Doug will speak about the chemistry of addiction and its effects on the brain, and also about the effects of addiction on the family and loved ones of an addicted person. Doug brings to the table his strong background in science, his expertise as a trained recovery specialist, and his experience with addiction in his own family. His son, Nate, died of an overdose in 2017.
