We Thirst™ is an inspirational presentation series that educates about the topic of addiction from a Christian perspective. The program consists of five sessions, which are designed for all Christians, including the afflicted and their families and friends, counselors, nurses, priests, pastors, deacons, chaplains, etc., those in the criminal justice system, educators, and anyone who would like to learn more to become part of a solution to a problem that has reached epidemic proportions. 

We Thirst thoroughly explores the nature of addiction and our responsibility as followers of Christ in responding to those who are suffering.
