Rooted 2017: Sharon Hersh on the Anatomy of Addiction

Whether it’s drugs, alcohol, pornography, or just the incessant use of social media and smart phones, addictive behavior is all around us. In fact, recent studies suggest that there is not a family in America that is not affected by addiction. In this workshop from Rooted’s 2017 conference in Dallas, Sharon Hersh examines the physical, emotional, and spiritual anatomy of all addiction and how that can lead us to the possibilities of redemption. Hersh discusses ways to understand and serve teens who demonstrate addictive behavior or who have family members who struggle with addiction. There is not greater context in which to understand freedom than in looking at the lies and truth about addiction.
