Saturday addiction event to feature faith-based road to recovery

A Saturday morning event at Yes Cinema will allow recovering addicts to explain their path to sobriety through faith.

Whitney Budd, with the Students Fund of Hope, said that through her work with students in need, she has found that many of those households have been affected by drug addiction.

Budd explains the goal of the event is to let people know that they are not alone, that others are struggling with the same issues.

Jacob Kessler, Chuck Fields and Michael Phelps will discuss their recovery. Budd said Jacob is her brother and all have ties to the town of Hope.

There will also be inspirational music, and information presented from the Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress in Bartholomew County, Sheriff Matt Myers and area recovery groups.

The You Are Not Alone Recovery event will start at 10 a.m. Saturday at Yes Cinema on Jackson Street  The program is free but seats are limited. You can reserve a seat online at
