“Recovery in a downtown entertainment business district where there is alcohol should not be. It’s not conducive to what recovery is.”
~ Andy Amoroso
Talking about the new community center that will offer a safe space for recovering addicts who want to develop their artistic ability and entrepreneurial skills.
Read about it...
Let's face it--Amoroso is a declared atheist. He doesn't believe in anything the Common Ground Church does to help addicts to turn around their lives and be productive citizens. He just doesn't believe in church or the good that they do.
Drugs are in our downtown so why not a place where these people can go who are kicking their habit and want nothing more than to be productive once again, a place that will be drug free serving nothing but coffee. Does it matter that it will be across from a nightclub? Will a nightclub that sells booze where people love to go and get a buzz be a bad influence on these people? It's possible that a small minority might slip but the Common Ground Church will be there to help them all.
This community center will not negatively impact our community any more than any other business in our downtown.
Their grand opening is April 8 at 3pm, 21 S J. Street, Lake Worth, FL
