Coming Up: Addiction is a Chronic Disorder. Treat It Like One!

xr:d:DAEftnYLIgg:866,j:757029488155003583,t:24041314

Choice versus disease is a false dichotomy, says Dr. Alex Elswick of the University of Kentucky. The host of our May 2 webinar will talk about why addiction should be thought of as a chronic disorder as well as the need to reduce stigma, the most salient risk factors for substance use, and the community-based policies, practices, and resources needed to support people in recovery.

Thursday, May 2, at 2 pm EST
