What is the AAS program? 

The AAS program seeks to start conversations about alcoholism in our families and communities. We are creating support, education, and discussion groups for those in recovery and their families.

Alcohol does not only affect the individual, but entire families and friends. We are meeting weekly on Zoom for 10 consecutive weeks to discuss topics around addiction, shame, depression, boundaries communication, and more. Our heart is with all the brave individuals and families that are suffering. We will be on this journey together.

How far along are we on the project?

At this time we have completed a 10 week session in Stanislaus County. We had two social worker professionals that led these important conversations. We have worked with over 20 families that are currently impacted by this disease, whether directly or indirectly.

With your support, we wish to expand to beyond one county, and make this a state-wide program as we know this problem isn't limited to only one county in our community. We even plan to expand some of the programming to in-person. 

How can you help?

We are asking for the Sangat's support for this new program. We have already seen the postive impacts of this program in a short period of time, and wish to continue serving the panth.

In order for us to be successful, we need your genorosity. By supporting AAS, you are not only helping the families and friends of those who have been impacted by alcoholism, but are also investing proper resources that the community needs to fight this disease.

We have received an initial small grant from Stanislaus County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services. However, we are seeking the support of the Sangat to complete the investment and help create a long-term program for the community. The funds you donate here will be alllocated specifically for Jakara to expand the impact that a program like this can have within the community.

    AAS Part 2: From Virtual to Local

    With the generous support of Stanislaus County Behavioral Health and Recovery Services, and Sangat members as yourself, AAS will be supported for a second round. Due to COVID-19, AAS was held in a virtual format. We are excited to hold AAS Alcohol Support Groups in person and local to the Stanislaus County region. 

    Under the guidance of an Advisory Board [and lessons learned from our Social Work Facilitators], we are in the process of developing content, structure, logistics, and hiring process.

     

    More soon, Sangat ji!

    In Chardi Kala,

    Manpreet Kaur
