Center City, MN

Follow your spirit—and spend your Sundays with us once a month.

Second Sunday Banner

Revitalize your recovery with friends and families who share the journey.

Welcome to Second Sunday, your opportunity each month to:

Addiction can be thought of as a relational disorder. This has been carefully documented in recovery literature for decades. Individuals whose parents suffered from active addiction may have had to face psychological, emotional and/or relational impacts resulting from this illness. This lecture will examine developmental impacts of growing up with active addiction. Included in this discussion is recognition of common protective behaviors, resiliencies and the necessity of healthy self-care.
