Competence Issues

Competence Issues Related to Substance Abuse

Is addiction a disease? What do you think? What do you know? Let’s have an honest conversation about addiction and why it’s not an easy “fix” regardless of the myriad of reasons to stop using our drug of choice. Addiction touches almost everyone. If not you, then you have likely seen the negative impact on friends, relatives, coworkers or clients. Let’s discuss how the brain is impacted by addictions and what can be done to make necessary behavioral changes. If it is indeed a disease, is there a treatment that works? Come join us for the discussion.
