Designing for Addiction Prevention and Recovery

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel is comprised of parents who’ve lost their children to addiction, a parent whose son is in recovery, and individuals themselves in long-term recovery.  We will hear directly from them about their struggles, the impact on individuals and families dealing with addiction, as well as their opinions on where the system could benefit from solutions.  The addiction issue is complex and would benefit from solutions in many areas.  We invite you to join us to hear first hand.
