On Sunday, Oct. 23, the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship service topic will be “Neighbors Helping Neighbors,” presented by Meg Dunn.
She comments that, “Using the vehicle of the Accountability Court, Pagosa Springs is building a healthier and stronger community. This organization focuses on participation in therapy where an emphasis of self-awareness, relapse prevention, and gaining new healthy living skills is coupled with increased community interaction, court participation, and an overall sense of accountability, using an incentive/reward and sanction system.”
Dunn emphasizes that, “Our whole community benefits in many profound ways from this extraordinary and important program. Certainly, this service gives recognition to the dignity and worth of every person in the community of humankind, which is a fundamental principle of Unitarian Universalism.”
Meg Dunn has a M.A. in counseling psychology and is a certified addictions counselor with 20 years of Mental Health counseling experience, including six years working with the Accountability Court in Pagosa Springs.
In 2010, she opened the Pagosa Recovery Center on Lewis Street, where building a stronger community and realizing participants’ highest potential is the goal. The Center offers a variety of mental health services, including couples, family and individual counseling, as well as DUI, domestic violence, anger management and substance monitoring.
The service begins at 10:30 a.m. in the Pagosah Unitarian Universalist Fellowship Hall, and child care will be provided. The address is Unit B-15, Greenbriar Plaza. Turn east on Greenbriar Drive off of North Pagosa Boulevard by the fire station, then left into the back parking lot and look for the big sign. All are welcome!
