April 1 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
***Due to COVID-19 precautions, this event has unfortunately been postponed indefinitely. We will update status when available.
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
As the opioid epidemic continues to unfold on the American landscape, our society is experiencing the loss of the flower of a generation. Studies reveal that alcohol use remains an even larger and growing public health problem than opioids. Marijuana use has become so casual as to usher itself into mainstream America, an innocuous choice for some perhaps, but for many others (including the youngest among us) its effects are devastating. Addiction is now a public health concern of epic proportions.
This CEU event is geared towards Mental Health Professionals.
CEU Credit Hours Available: 1.5 Hours
Hosted by Dawanna Andrus, Treatment Placement Specialists®,
