SESSION OVERVIEW

Alcohol, Substance Abuse and Prescription Medications in the Community
With a global pandemic still raging across America, resulting in separation from loved ones due to social distancing, as well as growing unemployment rates and economic uncertainty for many, it is perhaps no wonder there has been an increase in the need for help. With disruptions to many of our social lives, it may be difficult to reach out for help during this time, which can lead to people restraining their emotions and keeping them inside.
