Chaplaincy and Addiction: What’s a Chaplain to do?
In October, 2014, Chaplain Joe Herzanek (Changing Lives Foundation, Loveland, CO) was a featured speaker at the annual Wisconsin Chaplaincy Conference in beautiful Green Lake, Wisconsin.
This year’s theme was “Drug/Alcohol Addiction” and we (Joe and Judy Herzanek) were honored to spend 3 days at the beautiful Heidel House Resort, on Green Lake, WI.
Speaker Chaplain Joe delivered three presentations during the conference:
Chaplaincy and Addiction
> Addiction: Disease or Moral Failing?
> Addict with a crime problem or a criminal with an addiction problem?
> What’s a Chaplain to do?
Over three days much ground was covered on the topic of substance abuse and how it impacts the work of a Chaplain. Joe delivered three one hour presentations plus a roundtable discussion for a group of over 60 Chaplains, both men and women, who serve at various facilities in Wisconsin (from hospitals to jails to treatment centers and more).
All sessions were well-received and were very interactive.
â€œThere have been many great presenters over the years, but none that can really hold the folks and engage them in conversation the way Joe was able to do . . . The reviews were overwhelmingly positive.â€Â
