8. Christian gathering
Eighth in a row regional conference „ Christian gatherings of former addicts“ was also held at hotel Hollywood in Sarajevo from 28.03. till 30.03. this year. Like the name implies, conference is of religious character, and for eight years in row, it gathers former addicts, representatives of nongovernmental organizations dealing with the issues of addiction, sympathizers and medical workers from the former Yugoslavian region and beyond.
The main organizer of this conference is an association Proslavi Oporavak from Sarajevo , together with the representatives of the organizing committee from all over the region .
Number of participants of the conference increases from year to year, making it highly recognizable among relevant organizations and institutions. This year, the conference was attended by about 180 participants, who came to be encouraged, share experiences, hear testimonies and enjoy the fellowship with friends.
Judging by the positive reactions of the participants, who subsequently arrived at the address of the association Proslavi Oporavak, this year’s conference fulfilled its purpose, and the participants returned to their cities and towns with fresh strength and encouragement, not only to stay sober and “clean” in everyday situations, but to spread a positive influence, encouraging others who are still in the problem of addiction to seek help and make a step towards the recovery.
