Friends, family and community members are invited to this interactive conversation. We will be joined by a treatment professional and a family member.

Together we will address:
• why it is that some people become addicted, while others do not
• how to respond when we are concerned about someone’s substance use
• how we can challenge stigma and remove obstacles to seeking treatment and support
• how we find and support recovery as individuals, as families, and as a community
