The origination of the idea behind 'A Practical Guide to the Complex Issue of Addiction' was to approach battling addiction from a non-medical practitioners experience and view of addiction and those suffering from addiction.
The session painted a broad picture of addiction locally, around the country and around the world to set up the question, 'What do I do about it?'
From there, we discussed practical signs and symptoms of someone battling addiction and action steps for those wishing to help.
In the midst of this, we discovered that truly helping someone battling addiction oftentimes requires some of the most difficult decisions of your life. Through real-life examples, attendee participation and practical application, hopefully attendees and listeners can find a nugget of hope in the midst of the devastating effects of addiction.
