Event Details

Stigma in Prevention

Symposium 3-5 pm

Networking Reception 5-6 pm

This event is free and open to the public.


Stigma plays a significant role in the field of substance abuse prevention--from asking for help or getting treatment, to being perceived as an addict/alcoholic or the opposite--as not being part of the "in" crowd if one is not using. A panel of experts will discuss these topics and more at the first annual Lillian and Larry Goodman Symposium and Awards Ceremony.

Keynote speaker Neil Steinberg, columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times columnist will share his own struggle with alcoholism and reflect on the role of stigma in his drinking and recovery.

The afternoon will also feature a special ceremony recognizing an outstanding individual in the field of substance abuse prevention by receiving the first annual Award for Excellence in Drug Prevention. 

Roosevelt University, College of Education, is an approved continuing education provider and will offer two (2.0) Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Professional Development Units (CPDUs) for educational professionals and two (2.0) National Board of Certified Counselors (NCBB) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for mental health, prevention and treatment professionals.

Chicago Sun-Times Columnist Bill Zwecker will emcee the event.
