Awareness Hour Series: Embracing Family Resiliency
Awareness Hour Series: Embracing Family Resiliency will be held at the at the Annenberg Health Sciences Building on Saturday, February 17 2018 from 09:00AM to 11:00AM.
Eisenhower Health is hosting a series of complimentary public lectures in support of The Betty Ford Center, a part of the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation, which celebrate a legacy of recovery wisdom and strength. The Saturday morning sessions share the hope of addiction recovery through perspectives and voices that open the way to new insights, understanding and healing.
Addiction does not discriminate on the basis of race, sex, age or social status. It affects people from all walks of life, and it affects their families, too. Addiction is not caused by a lack of willpower or questionable moral character. It is a biogenetic, psychosocial, chronic disease characterized by excessive use of alcohol and/or other drugs. Despite this knowledge, there is still a stigma attached to addiction.
Alcohol and Other Drugs Awareness Hour programs will be held at the Annenberg Health Sciences Building. Refreshments will be served at 9 a.m., with the lectures beginning at 9:30 a.m. Admission is free and guests are encouraged. For more information, please call 760-773-1304, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Speakers for this event include; Mary Gordon, MA, LADAC II, ICADC, Former Director, Family Program, Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.
