Let's Talk About Treatment

A professor, an ex-addict, and a mother of 4 walk into a movie theater.

I have no clue what the punchline is to that joke, but that’s the line up we have for September 26th!

In our last event of the “Let’s Talk” series, we are ending with a bang!
After all the topics we have covered that surround substance use and addiction, we are tackling treatment. We know addiction is out there, and it’s rampant. So what do we do about it? What can we do? Multiple accredited speakers will address different aspects of treatment from the clinical perspective. We will also hear from Dr. Kent Dean about how treatment for substance abuse has evolved over the years and the state of treatment in 2019!

Join us on Thursday night at 6 pm at the Robinson Film Center to hear this wonderful and informed discussion! There will be good food, good friends, and lots of knowledge to be shared.
