Addiction and the Brain: Special Event @ PPC

Pennington Presbyterian invited the community to participate in this special event targeting those who are struggling with addiction or care for them.
Pennington Presbyterian Church is hosting a free Science and Faith lecture about “The Brain and Addiction”  on Sunday, February 11 at 3:00 pm. The church is located at 13 S. Main St. in Pennington. Rev. Dr. Sonia Waters will talk about how and why people become addicted, how addiction progressively changes the brain over time, and how individuals, people of faith, and the community can cultivate compassion and care. A Question and Answer period will follow the lecture. The church is sponsoring this event as part of its on-going care for those with addictions and the people who love and care for them.
Sonia Waters, Ph.D,  is an Assistant Professor of Pastoral Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary and an Episcopal priest. She is a volunteer chaplain at Carrier Clinic’s addiction treatment center. She was a case manager in a domestic violence shelter and a hotline crisis counselor for a rape crisis center. She has a new book, soon to be published by Eerdmans Publishing, on addiction.
