Currently, over 24 million people suffer from addiction in the United States, affecting 1 in 3 families. Dr. Springer's presentation will discuss the effects of substance use disorder and the brain, helping to understand why this is a chronic illness and not a choice. This free presentation is open to everyone: families affected by substance use disorder, professionals, people in or seeking recovery, and anyone who wants a better understanding of this illness.
