Presentation on “Understanding Addiction & Recovery” open to everyone May 14 in Waukon

Allamakee Prevention Advisory and Helping Services for Youth & Families will be hosting a presentation on “Understanding Addiction & Recovery: Information for Family, Friends, and Caregivers” Tuesday, May 14 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. in the Community Room of Robey Memorial Library in Waukon.

The training is supported by the State Opioid Response Grant (SOR3) grant administered by the Iowa Department of Health and Human Services, funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

At the end of this training participants should be able to:
• Define what addiction is and how the thinking has evolved, based on science;
• Visualize the recovery process (Readiness, Entry, During, and Long term);
• Clarify the roles that family/friends/caregivers play in support as well as self-care, and available resources.
