An evening with Steve Grant

Date: Tuesday, October 19th, 2021
Time: 7:00pm CST
Cost: $25 per person
Location: LIVE Video Webinar

Loving someone who is struggling with substance abuse can be terrifying and that fear can be as isolating for family members as the addiction is for the person struggling. In his book Don’t Forget Me, Steve Grant shares what he learned during his own difficult journey to encourage and guide others who love someone struggling with substance abuse. Steve’s two sons, Chris and Kelly, took distinctly different paths to the same outcome: death by overdose. Steve will share his personal story as a father before moderating a panel of local Kansas Citians with shared experiences. Steve offers time-tested, practical suggestions to assure family members and friends of those struggling with substance abuse they have not lost their minds and encourages them to find hope—even on the darkest days.
