'Challenges That Face Families with Addictions'


Networking and Continental Breakfast: 8:00 AM to 8:30 AM
Presentation: 8:30 AM to 10:00 AM

Overview: This workshop is designed as a model to empower families that have members with addictions. Strength-based language is used to discuss the roles of families as they face challenges in dealing with their family members' addictions. The presenter will use self-talk to give family members courage to leave their roles, which often promote the continuance of use. Myths and stereotypes will be discussed. Participants will leave the workshop with the following:

  • Increased use of positive language
  • Increased knowledge of ways to provide support for family members
  • Ways to assist families in setting reasonable and realistic boundaries
