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

“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.

In exactly one month..

Hello my friends,

What’s in one month, on January 16th? The first CRI Quarterly of the new year, that’s what!

Make sure it’s on your calendar, Saturday, January 16th, 2016. We will be meeting at the SW Bible Church, 14605 SW Weir Road, Beaverton, OR 97007 from 10am to 2pm; there will be a light lunch served at noon. This is a great opportunity for anyone to learn all about the CRI programs & people from around Oregon, newcomers are most welcome. Because it’s the first Quarterly for 2016, it will be very important for all current volunteers to be in attendance, we will be setting new goals, addressing some significant improvements to this ministry, & of course, hearing from everyone whats on their heart & mind.

An agenda will be sent out closer to the date but, I’ve attached a flyer which I’m encouraging you to print copies of (or email to someone at your CR who can make copies) & see to it that these copies are placed on the literature table. Ask your ministry leader to show the flyer & announce the Quarterly, inviting all to attend, during the large group announcements.

Thank you all in advance for helping get the word out & I hope you all have a very safe & merry Christmas!
In Christ,
