Event description
Project 180 & Boxser Diversity Initiative present an exploration of the disease of addiction with implications for criminal justice reform.

About this event

The disease of addiction may be the most misunderstood disease of our time. Parents, children, and trusted friends of those who suffer from the disease express their bewilderment, disappointment, and anger at their loved one's behavior. My son was such a strong person; what caused him to self-destruct?

Addiction is a metabolic brain disease that is chronic and relapsing. It causes intense craving and reduced executive decision-making functioning while incurring psychological dependency on one or more substances that advance the disease. The 2022 Strong Voices season will explore the symptoms of the disease, life during active addiction, and the transformative power of active recovery. For the first time in the history of Strong Voices, Project 180's residents are taking an active role in crafting the content of the series.

With thanks to Verizon Foundation, major sponsor for Strong Voices 2022.
