Open Doors, a family-friendly community event focused on preventing and overcoming addictions, is scheduled for Saturday, May 11th from 11am to 2pm at the St. Michaels’ Community Center and Union United Methodist Church in historic downtown St. Michaels, Maryland. This event is for all ages and will feature great speakers, free food, live DJ, a rock-climbing wall, games and prizes. A prayer group will be on site and available to listen and pray for individuals in need of spiritual healing. Open Doors will feature a wide variety of local and state agencies, recovery groups, healthcare providers, and community organizations specializing in helping people overcome addictions. Several break-out sessions are scheduled throughout the day addressing a variety of addiction-related topics. Individuals seeking freedom from addiction will find resources available for the mind, body and spirit. Help will also be available for individuals indirectly affected by a loved one’s dependency. The event will conclude with a prayer and healing service at Union UM Church.
