Through a Child's Eyes: Understanding Addiction and Recovery
Wayzata Community Church
125 Wayzata Blvd. E., Wayzata, MN
We are excited to host Jerry Moe, an industry pioneer who has been a trailblazer for professionals who work with children impacted by drug and alcohol addiction!
Children have a unique perspective in viewing the world. While itís been long held that alcoholism and other drug addiction are a family disease, there are relatively few opportunities for children to be an integral part of the recovery process. Come learn how children see addiction in their families. More importantly, witness how they embrace the healing journey. There is much hope today when we engage the whole family.
Jerry Moe is the National Director of Childrenís Programs at Betty Ford Center, part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation . He is an Advisory Board Member of the National Association for Children of Alcoholics (NACoA), he is an author, lecturer, and trainer on issues for children and families hurt by addiction. In 2013, he received the Mona Mansell Award and the Father Joseph C. Martin Award. Moe also received the 2005 America Honors Recovery Award from the Johnson Institute, and the 2000 Ackerman/Black Award from NACoA for "significantly improving the lives of children of alcoholics in the United States and around the world."
