Description

Attack Addiction
A Presentation Featuring Don Keister of atTAcK addiction

On Sunday, October 28, at 5:00 pm, Don Keister – founding board member of atTAcK addiction – will present an informative program concerning the impact of heroin and other addictive drugs on our local community and, specifically, our youth.

During 2017 alone, 345 people died of heroin overdoses in Delaware...with another 141 such deaths in Chester County, PA. This is a crisis. Nothing less. And one that we must address.

Sadly, the ages of those dying trend younger every year. With this in mind, teens and parents are encouraged to hear this informative drug awareness and prevention presentation that will transport those in attendance directly into the life of a teen exposed to experimentation. The intent is to break the stigma by representing the faces of addiction and to start a conversation about drug and alcohol use between students and parents.

Keister and atTAcK addiction will create a lasting impact on all who attend. Some sections of the program may be emotionally charged, and parental guidance is strongly encouraged.

Part of the church’s Vision 2020 Program, this important event is FREE and open to the community.
