"ENOUGH" ADDICTION MINISTRY HOSTS P.R.I.D.E.

Project P.R.I.D.E. brings minimum custody offenders into schools, clinics and other community forums to speak about decision making and how it impacts society.  During their visit the offenders are under the direct supervision of Senior Correction Officers.

The goal of Project P.R.I.D.E. is to educate the audience on the harsh realities and consequences once poor choices have been made.  The messages of the offenders are used to encourage the audience to make responsible decisions as they start to encounter critical stages in their lives. The topics of conversation will cover a variety of issues, including, but not limited to, alcohol and drug abuse, drinking and driving, negative peer relationships, disrespecting authority and bullying. They stress the fact that “THE WORST THING THAT ONE CAN DO IS TO ESTABLISH A CRIMINAL RECORD – AVOID IT AT ALL COSTS”.

P.R.I.D.E presentations also provide an opportunity for parents and other community members to experience firsthand accounts from the offenders so they will become better equipped to recognize the early warning signs and provide additional resources which may be used to combat some of these negative behaviors. A moderator will lead this candid discussion which will be followed by a question and answer period with the audience. 

We invite parents,  grandparents, children (min. age 13),  family and friends to attend this session with the hope of educating and providing resource information to help those in need and to fight the war on drugs that has inflicted the young and old in our communities.  Please come and join us to spread the word that we have had “ENOUGH” of this dreadful epidemic.
