Faith Partners Research in National Journal
Faith Partners published The Faith Community, Substance Abuse, and Readiness for Change: A National Study. This independently conducted research paper includes the results of their nation-wide study on the vital role that faith communities play in addressing substance abuse disorders. The study examines a theory-driven model of congregational readiness (defined as a faith community’s intention and preparedness to address and support recovery from substance use disorders) using a national cross-sectional study of 45 faith communities (composed of 3,649 members). This may give both on-going and newly emerging Faith Partners groups a great deal of professional credibility to leverage in their efforts at developing effective team responses.
