May 7 workshop helps families deal with substance abuse

Rosecrance invites you to “What Can I Say to Convince Them to Quit?: Why Families Wait to Intervene on a Substance Abuser,” a workshop that will be held May 7 from 7 to 8 p.m. at Oak Park Township Senior Services, 130 S. Oak Park Ave., Oak Park, IL.

The workshop will be hosted by David Lee, founder of Indiana-based Intervention Services and Technologies, Inc. Lee has more than 10 years of experience in interventions, addiction counseling, family systems and recovery. These workshops are for family members and others who are concerned about a loved one’s substance use and want answers to vital questions, including “Why is it so difficult to get a loved one to stop abusing drugs and alcohol?” and “What can a parent do in advance to prevent serious problems?”

Attendees will learn new ways of interacting with a loved one regarding their use of substances. Participants will hear a personal story of addiction and recovery;
learn what to avoid when talking with a loved one who abuses drugs or alcohol; and connect with helpful resources for intervention and treatment.

Admission to the workship is free, but seating is limited. For more information, email us here. To register, click here.
