Challenging Stigma: Helping Friends and Families Understand Addiction

Event Details

Friends, family and community members are invited to this interactive conversation. We will be joined by a treatment professional and an individual in recovery.

Together we will address:

  • Why it is that some people become addicted, while others do not.
  • How to respond when we are concerned about someone’s substance use.
  • How we can challenge stigma and remove obstacles to seeking treatment and support.
  • How we find recovery as individuals, as families, and as a community. Special Guest: Michael Blanche, MSS, LCSW Michael is the Co-Founder of Ethos Treatment, LLC. He is a licensed clinical social worker with more than twenty years of experience providing all levels of direct clinical care in the treatment of addiction and mental health.
