What is Addiction? training

Posted by Rutgers University on September 17, 2018

Please join us on Tuesday, September 25th from 12:00 – 1:30 on the Rutgers-Camden campus for a powerful conversation on the root causes of addiction and how you can better support those you love and those in your community who may be suffering.

September is National Recovery Month which focuses on increasing awareness and understanding of mental and substance use disorders and celebrate the people who recover. In an effort to better understand the root cause of addiction the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps Black Commissioned Officers Advisory Group will offer a 1 hour training session titled “What is Addiction?” to members of the community. During the hour community members will come to understand the science, learn how to combat stigma, and expand their understanding of addiction as a health condition. At the end of the training session, community members will have gained the knowledge and resources needed to better understand substance use disorders and be provided assistance on how to address addiction in your home and community.

The presentation will be led by LeAnn D. Brodhead, PharmD, MPH – LCDR, U.S. Public Health Service in the Rutgers- Camden Campus Center located at 326 Penn Street, Camden, NJ 08102 in the Multipurpose Room. Please feel free to share this event with your networks.

Refreshments will be served.

Please rsvp to Nyeema C. Watson, associate chancellor for civic engagement at ncwatson@camden.rutgers.edu.
