Red Ribbon Week

A Week About CONNECTION – Connection is the Opposite of Addiction

Much of what we thought we knew about addiction is wrong. Researchers now understand that addiction is not about the pleasurable effects of substances; it’s about an inability to connect in healthy ways with other human beings. It’s not a substance disorder, it’s a social disorder.

Red Ribbon

We have chosen to focus red ribbon week on building resiliency, mental health, and connection. Each

day will have a theme. ❤No One is an Island. ❤Mindfulness is a Superpower. ❤Courage to Care. ❤Be your Best Self: cinch by the inch, hard by the yard.

Haunted Halls Of Hillside, October 25, 7:00 - 8:00 P.M
