Chemical dependency affects all members of the family, not just the person with the alcohol or other drug addiction. "Chemical Dependency and the Family" will be presented on Tuesday October 30, 2012, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Lynn Kleiman Malinoff, Ed.D. This program will provide participants with a basic understanding of how addiction impacts each member of a family. The presenter will describe the roles and behaviors that family members often acquire when living with addiction, ways in which each family member is affected by addiction in the family, and options for family members to obtain help to cope with addiction in the family.
This program is part of the annual Dawn Farm Education Series. All programs in the Education Series are FREE and open to anyone interested in attending – no registration is required.
