It will cover the neurological basis of addiction; mental, behavioral, emotional and spiritual dimensions; stages of change; recovery; motivational techniques and resources.

Special attention will be paid to the effects on the children in the family and discussion will center around strategies and resources to help increase their resiliency and coping skills.
