Monday, June 12, 2017 from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Imagine that you, or someone you love, has felt the pain of some really harsh consequences – all because of a substance use disorder. Is it possible to move forward, heal, and find hope?
Join us as we find ways to “embrace the consequences”
• While punishment is never preferred over treatment, can consequences such as legal charges be the intervention that ultimately ends the cycle of substance misuse?
• If treatment efforts have not been successful, can families help by changing our response to a loved one’s continued use?
• When our loved one’s consequences have devastated us, can we change our path to find our own peace of mind and recovery?
There is no charge for this event. Not recommended for those under 13.
