Description:

 

As a recovering alcoholic with years of sobriety, Romero tells his story of moving from denial to acceptance and encourages participants to tell their own stories; wherever they are on their own journeys with addiction.

 

Not only for those with a past of substance abuse themselves, this workshop can also help those with friends or family members who have suffered from addiction come to terms with it and gain a better understanding of what they may be going through.


Purpose:

 

This workshop seeks to help participants find root causes for addiction and solutions through writing and discussion. This workshop presents therapy and sobriety as possible alternatives to substance abuse.

 

CATEGORIES: PERSONAL, THERAPY, WRITING, DISCUSSION
