Addiction Recovery Program offered

An Addiction Recovery Program (ARP) program is being held at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (207 South A Street in Hawthorne.) It is open to all, members and non-members alike. Elder and Sister Bruni will be the facilitators. The ARP is for those who desire assistance in overcoming anything that interferes with the living of their lives. Addictions encompass food, alcohol, medications and illegal drugs and anything that adversely affects the quality of our lives. In keeping with most recovery programs, confidentiality is a cornerstone.

The program is held on the first three Tuesday’s of each month from 7 to 8 p.m. in the Sunday School/Relief Society room. For anyone unfamiliar with the church, one enters through the back door and additional directions will be inside. Their gold Highlander will be parked at the door.
