Understanding addiction: A crisis in our community

Umbrella is pleased to offer a series of community conversations that will address and deconstruct the many facts and fictions about addiction.

During the five sessions, registered participants will be challenged while we learn, discuss and share about a range of topics, including our belief systems, the cause of addiction, community impact, harm reduction, impact on family, recovery, and what we can do collectively to address this crisis.

These learning series are designed for adults who want to learn facts and dispel myths, break down the stigma of addiction, network with other engaged community members and be a part of the addiction solution. Feedback from our two previous sessions has been very positive with participants citing an increase in connection, knowledge, resources and community.

The next session, our third, is scheduled to run in the fall of 2018.
