Path to Peace
“Do not fear: I am with you. Do not be anxious, I am your God. I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my victorious right hand” (Isaiah 41:10).
Path to Peace is a peer-support group for persons experiencing problems associated with someone else’s addiction. It is a program that helps restore hope in the future for you and your loved one by centering on God through prayer, meditation, and music. It draws on the rich prayer tradition of the Catholic Church, but persons of all faiths are welcome.
Path to Peace is a 12-week program that follows two books. One book centers on love, mercy, and ways to build a closer attachment to God. The other describes the disease process of addiction as well as communication techniques that have helped guide substance abusers into treatment.
Path to Peace is a journey of prayer and empowerment where you can expect to:
Discover that you are not alone.
Engage in "letting go and letting God," to draw nearer to God.
Learn skills and tools available to enhance the quality of your own life.
Take steps to overcome the feelings of blame, guilt, fear, anxiety, and anger.
Understand addiction as a disease as well as the process of rehabilitation and relapse.
Explore ways to better communicate using positive-communication techniques.
Learn about helpful resources and support agencies
