New Normal for Coping and Addiction

New Normal for Coping and Addiction

Pastor Brent Clark interviews Melissa Dale with Celebrate Recovery at Lutheran Church of Hope in West Des Moines about the impact of COVID-19 on addiction and how there is help and hope for any dealing with habits, hurts, or hangups.


As you meet as Ashworth@Home groups or maybe just have conversations with friends and neighbors about the new normal we are all facing, here are some questions you can use to have a spiritual discussion.


  1. What’s been your quarantine indulgence? 
  2. What from today’s interview resonated with you?
  3. What have been your coping mechanisms during the pandemic? Have they been healthy or unhealthy for you?
  4. If something in your life has been an unhealthy coping mechanism, would you be willing to fast from that this week and talk to someone about it? Confess it to God in prayer (or if you are brave, to the others in your Ashworth@Home group).
