On Wednesday, Nov. 20, author Joshua Mohr returned to the Johnson County Adult Residential Center to hold a writing workshop for clients. Mohr first visited the facility in September 2018, and received great response from clients. The author has written several books, including Sirens, which is a relapse memoir. He has a special interest in working with clients in jails and drug treatment programs.
During the Wednesday visit, Mohr worked with 20 clients from the Therapeutic Community, a six-month drug treatment program. His writing workshop focused on using writing as a healthy outlet to deal with the feelings of shame and guilt that come with getting sober.
The visit from the author was made possible by a partnership with Johnson County Library.
