Thrive Talks Speaker Series: What About Us? Family, Friends, and Loved Ones of People with Addictions

7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Main Library
Second Floor - Veterans Room

Event Details

This presentation is for the family, friends, and loved ones of someone with alcoholism or other addictions. This talk will help you better understand how addiction shapes and affects YOU. You will learn that often the very things we attempt to do to help the alcoholic or addict don’t work; in fact, more often than not, they enable their addictions and get in the way of recovery. You will come away from this evening with useful information and suggestions for coping with the exhausting, heartbreaking, and crazy-making challenges that accompany loving an addict. Most importantly you will understand how your own selfcare can make a meaningful impact in helping your loved one get better. Please join us to access the help and promise of hope you deserve! 


Presented by Mary Ann Daly, MA, LCPC
