Drugs & Other Addictions Info Day - Woodvale | Woodvale Baptist Church | Saturday, 06. May 2017

THE INFORMATION DAY THAT WORKS

METHAMPHETAMINE / ICE ADDICTION

Peter Lyndon-James specialises in two things:

1. Showing a person how to change their life.
2. Showing families how to bring the person to the point of wanting to change.

Do you know someone struggling with addiction? Do you want to know how to help them?

METHAMPHETAMINES / DRUG ADDICTION

Get information, hear testimonies and ask questions.
Everyone welcome: old, young, male or female - it can happen to anyone.

RSVP to Peter Lyndon-James at 0404 654 004 or info@shalomhouse.com.au

Come along to the information day where Peter Lyndon-James will teach you how to:

- Never give up on a person, but set boundaries
- Guard your heart
- Bring the truth in live
- Put the ball in their court
- Speed up the process to bring the person to a point of wanting to change
- Help that person when they get to a point of change
- Care for yourself and your family as it all unfolds
- Work out where a person is at in regard to addiction - A, B, C, D or E

A - Just starting out (recreational user) at a fork in the road
B - Weekly user, every weekend, thinks it's ok
C - Won't listen, made their mind up, can't see it's wrong, un teachable
D - Pathway to destruction, using every day, selling assets, life falling apart, lost family
E - Flat out user, lost all friends and family, everything around them is falling to pieces

You will also learn what you do and don't do:

Don't:
- Blame yourself
- Pay debts of any kind
- Do things on their behalf
- Be angry at the person
- Let them back in your home when they hit rock bottom

Do:
- Learn to let go
- Set your boundaries
- Understand the drug

The problem we have:

- We don't have everyone on the same page.
- Too many people take the "do as I say not do as I do" approach expecting it to change something.
- We don't have enough rehabilitation centres.
- In some cases we are taking them from an Illegal addiction to a legal one.
- There are many people who are not serious about wanting to change and we are putting them with the ones who are therefore taking out the serious ones in the process.

We will also be hearing a couple of testimonies from parents and ex-addicts who have come out the other side.

Anyone is invited, male or female, young or old. You will also have an opportunity to ask questions on the day.
