PROVO, UTAH -- "He Did Deliver Me From Bondage" is the workbook used
by LDS Family Services to support families and individuals who suffer
from addiction to drugs and alcohol. In addition the book serves to
assist recovery from addictions such as overeating, overspending,
unresolved childhood abuses, etc. It is also a book used by a Twelve
Step support program especially for LDS people, Heart t' Heart.
Like A.A. (Alcoholic Anonymous) and the LDS Family Services Drug and
Alcohol program, Heart t' Heart uses the basic principles of the Twelve
Steps to put God squarely into the center of the participants' lives by
utilizing these same values and principles, translating them into LDS
terminology and concepts, based on LDS scriptures. Though Heart t' Heart
is not affiliated with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints,
it teaches nothing contrary to LDS Church doctrine. In fact the Heart t'
Heart program encapsulates those Church doctrines and teachings and
positively affects the life of any person having difficulty living by
those same values and principles.
Members of support groups from all over Utah and the nation, as well as
other countries abroad, are invited to attend its 9th Annual Conference
entitled "No Other Name..." The conference will be held August 25-26 at
Utah Valley State College, in Orem, Utah, Friday from 6 pm to 8 pm,
and Saturday from 9 am to 6 pm. Dinner Friday and lunch Saturday are
available with advance registration. Three hundred people are expected
to attend. Last year's attendance approached 200.
Deanna Edwards, Dr. Mark Chamberlain PhD and Kenneth Cope are featured
speakers, and/or musical entertainment throughout the two day conference
Tentative workshop titles are: "Twelve Traditions--Antidote to
Codependence," "Infinite Atonement--Key to Recovery," "Lean Not To Thy
Own Understanding," "Capturing Truths from the Scriptures," and other
