communication open again.

from Dr. Alexandra Katehakis – Outside Director for SCA :
“We’re living in a disruptive time; pandemics, war, and climate change disasters are on the rise. I don’t
think we’re ever “going back” to what was. As such, I believe we will continue to see an increase in
addiction as people grasp to regulate themselves and find meaning in a topsy-turvy world. Sadly, the
current sociopolitical climate engenders isolation, violence, and deprivation of those in need making
SCA and its services more critical. SCA will remain a beacon of light through inclusivity, a place for
people to find a “home” where they won’t be judged, and caring fellows to soothe and support them.
May you all flourish and be well.”
