Our Lady of the Sioux in Oglala, South Dakota is holding Family Wellness Meetings on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 p.m. at the Brother Denny Hall.

"The program is designed to help people deal with drug and alcohol abuse; whether they are struggling with an addiction themselves, or have a family member struggling with an addiction," says program director Matt Peterson. "The turnout and response has been good so far."

“We have some excellent professionals in drug and alcohol counseling available some from Catholic Social Services and some locals such as Basil Brave Heart,” says Peterson.
