Addictions meeting a huge success

New addictions support group starting in Agassiz at St. Anthony's

 

My thanks go out to the people who attended the excellent presentation given by Dr. Fritz and Wayne Yaskow this past Monday. The session dealt with gambling addiction and was very informative. As a result, Dr. Fritz and other professionals in the field of addictions and depression will now be giving regular sessions each Monday at 3 p.m. at the Agassiz Community Services Building located on Pioneer Avenue. I would invite all those who struggle with mental health issues and addictions of any form.

I also wish to mention that this Thursday, October 20, there will now be regular Thursday evening sessions for those who suffer from depression and/or addictions. These meetings shall be held at the St. Anthony’s Catholic Church located on Morrow Road, Agassiz and will run from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the rear building. Those wishing further information may call 604-997-3071 after 6 pm. Friends and family members are encouraged to attend as addictions usually involve co-dependants and these meetings will be beneficial to ALL who attend.
