Families Hurt, Families Heal

Addiction is getting a lot of press lately. But what is addiction, exactly? And why is it sometimes called a, “family disease”?This talk will aim to clarify what addiction is, how it grows, and how it affects families. Just as there are common, predictable symptoms of addiction, there are common, predictable, detrimental family patterns associated with addiction.

Fortunately, we know a lot about recovery too. We know how to build recovery within and around the individual, and we also know how families can recover from the damage to grow stronger than ever. Because recovery is also common, possible and so, very worthwhile. This will be an interactive hour, so please bring your questions.
