Community Reinforcement and Family Training (CRAFT) begins May 5!
Into Light Anti-Stigma Project - Pennsylvania Exhibit - March 5th through March 26
Theresa Clower, a bereaved mom and artist, founded the nonprofit Into Light with the mission of erasing the stigma of substance abuse disorder. Into Light pairs sketch portraits and narratives of people that have lost their lives to substance use disorder. The exhibit lets viewers see the beauty, humanity, and complexity of each individual life. According to Clower, the drawings are “all made up of light and dark — we all are. No one should be defined by that darkest moment.” The Into Light exhibit runs at The Ware Center in Lancaster from March 5-26. The Pennsylvania exhibit includes sketches from two of our OASIS families... Ben Miller (son of Rhonda & Jerry Miller) and Chris Deckman (son of Brenda & Doug Deckman). You can view the exhibition video below:

The Angels of the Valley Banner Project aims to raise awareness of the issue of drug overdose and reduce the stigma associated with people who have lost their lives due to substance use disorder. This project also recognizes the grief felt by families and friends in our community who have lost a loved one as a result of drug use. The banners signify the passing of someone cherished and send a message that the tragedy of substance-related death is preventable, and those who are suffering should feel no shame in asking for help. Banners are displayed at ArtsQuest's SteelStacks campus in south Bethlehem, from August 31 (international overdose awareness day) through September (National Recovery month). New submissions accepted in July 2021.
