WEST LONG BRANCH: The following is a press release from Family Addiction Network:
The Family Addiction Network, a volunteer organization which reaches out to help individuals and families dealing with addiction through the program's non-judgmental, passionate and receptive environment has M. Miles Logan form The Fresh Start re-entry program based out of the Long Branch Free Public Library as the Network's March speaker.
The next meeting of the Network is March 21, 2017, from 7:00-8:30pm at the West Long Branch Community Center. There is no charge and light refreshments will be available.
The Fresh Start program first established in 2012, has been re-launched through the help of a partnership with Monmouth University School of Social Work.
The values behind the program are that every individual deserves a second chance and recognizes the challenges and obstacles of creating a stable life while living with a criminal record.
Many seeking to overcome addiction today face problems of having a criminal record from the past. While they have struggled to bounce back from addiction they seek employment and recovery that is very difficult; some are not able to deal with the challenges while they are alone. The Fresh start program gives aid and support through resume writing, job searching, referrals and interview preparation. At the same time the individuals may encounter a society that has an unfavorable view of the past of individuals, and impairs they're not getting hired.
Mr. Logan has worked on a program that includes networking experience and contacts, government services and community activities to develop resources that can help these ex-offenders to find a way.
Today he is a United States Infantry veteran and currently a Sergeant in the Army Reserve. He is pursuing a Bachelor degree in Social Work at Monmouth U with plans to move forward with social work in communities and especially as he may have opportunity to serve veterans and active duty service members, with the idea to continue in social work as his profession, with a degree of concentration in criminal justice reforms and assistance.
The Family Addiction Network holds monthly meetings attended by family members and individuals seeking help. For more info on their work go to familyaddictionnetwork.org or firstname.lastname@example.org. There is also Google Voice (862) 803-0288
