Treating young adult men brings its own set of challenges and requires specialized interventions in order to engage those seeking treatment from Substance Use Disorders. Their families also require a unique kind of support. The goal of this workshop is to provide a map for support, engagement and goal setting for young adults. Those paths can include: returning to higher education, improving relationships and developing healthy coping mechanisms for long term recovery. Join us as we embark on a journey to understand practical applications of these principles of recovery, and gain additional knowledge to guide these young men towards a life of achievement and sobriety.
