Workshop Objectives:

This training will provide an overview on how to best understand addiction including its effect on brain functioning (medical illness or “disease”) as well as, the addicted loved ones’ struggles, experiences, and common behaviors by family and friends associated with addiction. After the presentation, a panel discussion will follow on the barriers, challenges, and opportunities around addiction and recovery in the Hispanic Community.

As a result of this workshop, the participant will gain an understanding of…

  1. addiction as a medical illness;
  2. how addiction affects brain functioning;
  3. responses and reactions by family and friends that help or hurt recovery.
