Description

As today’s adolescents and their parents and caregivers face growing societal and personal challenges, addictive behaviors are appearing in many new forms and to extreme degrees:

  • technology and video game addiction,

  • social media dependence and overuse,

  • alcohol and other substance abuse,

  • opioid addiction,

  • and much more.

Join us for an open discussion about all aspects of these issues, including warning signs to be aware of, risk factors and behaviors, parenting tips, and resources available in our communities.

Panelists will include: Kym Laube, Executive Director of Human Understanding and Growth Services, Inc. (HUGS); Linda Ventura, Founder of Thomas’ Hope Foundation; Noam Fast, M.D., Medical Director of the Mather Hospital Chemical Dependency Clinic; Jason Bleecher, Licensed Master Social Worker & Substance Abuse Therapist; and Carissa Millet, Licensed Clinical Social Worker.
