The Spirituality Initiative works to build opportunities for clients/consumers, family members, providers and community members to collaboratively explore, increase awareness of, and support spirituality and its relationship to health and well-being, especially for those with or at risk of co-occurring alcohol/drug addiction and mental health challenges.
