Description

Presentation
Addiction, Recovery and the Emerging Paradigm
We are in the midst of a massive paradigm shift in our understanding of addiction and recovery. Simply put, we now know that the "opposite of addiction is not sobriety but connection." This means that addiction is ultimately a socio-cultural issue. This has huge implications for prevention, treatment, and recovery. This presentation will explore this emerging paradigm - we will discuss trauma, AA, the disease model, and recovery in the age of COVID-19.
