7th Christian Gathering International Conference of Former Addicts
The seventh Christian Gathering International Conference of Former Addicts was held last weekend at the Hotel Hollywood in Sarajevo. United by the same goal, the 150 delegates who attended the conference were previously trapped in addiction, but are now free and useful members of society who were able to take full advantage of the opportunity this conference provided to network, to hear the testimony of others, and- thanks to the second chance they have been given in life- to reaffirm amongst one another that life free from addiction is very much possible. This is a unique conference in the region, since it is specifically organized by former addicts. In our modern times when addiction is a part of society in every place and where drug use and addiction is a generally accepted behavioural norm, it was a wonderful thing to see so many people gathered together who were once on the margins of society and who are today positive examples to all those around them.
