Topic: Building Resilience in At-Risk Youth
What builds resilience among at risk youth? Resilience is defined as the ability to overcome a difficult environment and thrive amidst surrounding chaos. Decades of research demonstrate that all of our youth are at risk for substance abuse and other behavioral addictions. There are a number of specific things we can do as a faith community that build resilience in our youth and aid recovery for those that have gotten involved in substance abuse.
