Recovery Across the Lifespan
We all have challenges across our lifespan. How do the
challenges of treating addiction or beating an addiction differ at
each stage in the life course? How do I know whether I need
recovery or not? Do we need different tools for recovery to address
each stage in life? All addictions share certain traits and
challenges. In this presentation and discussion, we’ll explore the
“addict” inside each of us, discuss the core struggle all
individuals wrestling with addictions have in common, and
investigate the challenges recovering individuals face in each
stage of the life course. Whether you’re an individual recovering
from an addiction, a treatment professional, a student, or a person
coping with an addicted family member or friend, all people face
obstacles -- right here, right now -- and we always will. Together,
we’ll explore ways to overcome obstacles in our lives as we
consider new ways to support others as they overcome theirs - no
matter how old they are when they start."
