As a result of the overwhelming response to our first “Conversation Forum” we offered another opportunity to hear from a panel of students and young adults who provided insights into the challenges confronting them in today’s world. In addition to the young adults in recovery, we also heard from an often-overlooked segment of our community . . . young people who have a loved one struggling with addiction. Young members of Alateen added depth and dimension to the conversation about the effects of alcohol or other drug addiction. By sharing their personal experiences, we had an opportunity to have a candid discussion about some difficult topics, without the emotional impact of a personal relationship.
