Clergy Prevention Handbook
NACoA’s latest publication from The Clergy Education and Training Project® is Preventing and Addressing Alcohol and Drug Problems: A Handbook for Clergy.
This was prepared with support from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Substance Abuse Prevention.
This handbook provides some basic information on alcoholism and addiction, the impact of parental addiction on children, facts about adolescent alcohol and drug use, and prevention strategies.
It also has an appendix with handouts for use with children of alcohol and drug dependent parents.
Clergy Certificate Program
NACoA, in partnership with NAADAC, The Association for Addiction Professionals, has created a new milestone for congregational leaders, a Certificate in Spiritual Caregiving to Help Addicted Persons and Families.
