The Oct 1st Quarterly is really shaping up…

Dear Friends, Brothers & Sisters in Christ,

Well, this past weekend definitely has let me know that Summer is over, Fall is upon us! The rain is falling & the leaves on the trees are turning beautiful shades of red, yellow & orange; God’s creation is moving on into the next season which is like all those Falls before & yet unlike any we have ever seen. I hope & pray all is well with you & your families.

We’ve updated our Oregon & Washington CRI brochures & attached them here so, if you’d like to print some copies up for your literature table or other uses, you can. Also, attached is a flyer for the Quarterly which I hope you can print & share with those attending your weekly CR meeting. We’ll be sending out an agenda next week but here’s some of what to expect: pre-meeting coffee & pastries, opening worship trio, reports from our 26 ‘inside CR groups’, mini-mony from a CRI ‘satisfied customer’, overview & training on mentorship & transitional needs at the community CR level, short talk on spousal support, CR testimony from CRI volunteer, open Q&A sessions, and of course, a yummy light lunch!

This is a great opportunity to learn about CR Inside, this is a wonderful opportunity to network with CR leaders involved in the mission field behind the chain-link&razorwire, this is a very important meeting for the CR leader to learn about efforts now underway to train-up the community CR group to better serve the transitioning newcomer. All are welcome, newcomer, pastors, those in associated ministries & recovery programs.

This meeting is free, it starts promptly at 10am & is over at 2pm, lunch is served at noon (those with special dietary needs will need to bring the appropriate food).

The Quarterly is held in room #221 at the SW Bible Church, 14605 SW Weir Road, Beaverton, OR 97007.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns & ideas.

Seattle could open housing for homeless where it’s OK to use heroin | The Seattle Times

“For I desire mercy, not sacrifice…” Hos 6:6

Let go let God

http://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/health/innovative-solution-to-homelessness-housing-where-drug-use-is-ok/?utm_source=news.google.com&utm_medium=Referral&utm_campaign=rss_editors_picks_feed_homepage&google_editors_picks=true

“The Heroin Task Force formed by Seattle Mayor Ed Murray and King County Executive Dow Constantine has endorsed opening safe-consumption sites for addicts, which would be a first in the U.S. But some say getting homeless addicts off the streets requires an even bolder move.”

Substance Use Disorder – Treatment Options Expand

Let go let God

“Access expanded for medication-assisted treatment of opioid use disorder.”

CNN circulates the news that the Administration is taking steps to expand treatment and options for Addicts. Buprenophine use expanded in opioid detox. The drug acts on the receptor targets of heroin and morphine but does not produce the same high or dangerous side effects, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

http://www.cnn.com/2016/07/06/health/opioid-epidemic-funding/

HHS estimated that 2.2 million Americans met the criteria for opioid addiction, and about a million of those received medication-assisted treatment, according to Dr. Christopher Jones, director of the Division of Science Policy in the Office of the agency’s assistant secretary for planning and evaluation. Of that million, about 60% to 65% received buprenorphine, and the remainder received methadone.
