Topics will include a discussion of how to begin dealing with the issue, both in families and in the community; signs and symptoms of addiction; how to seek treatment; and how to support those who have lost loved ones.
The panel discussion will be moderated by Gary Montgomery and will include experts in the fields of addiction, treatment, recovery and spirituality.
