"Faith communities can and do make a difference in the lives of
families struggling with addiction problems! Meacham's The Addiction
Ministry Handbook is an excellent resource for Unitarian Universalist
congregations and their lay leaders—for the knowledge found on every page, the
inclusive attention to our broad spiritual foundations and for the practical
tools it provides for caregivers and addiction ministry committees. The author
pays close attention to the pervasive complexity of addiction and calls our
faith communities to a ministry of healing and wholeness. I highly recommend
this handbook for the knowledge, spirituality and skills it offers to people of
all ages and families of all kinds. I encourage every congregation to take up
this important ministry."—Rev. Patricia Hoertdoerfer, Children, Family and
Intergenerational Programs Director, UUA
