Addiction Awareness Workshop: Solutions for Families

The Nantucket Community School & the Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention presents

Family Awareness Program For Individuals and Families Who Suffer From the Impact of Addiction

This Two Day Course Sponsored by Alliance for Substance Abuse Prevention and The Community Foundation of Nantucket is FREE of charge.  
Pre-registration is appreciated but not required through the Nantucket Community School.

25% of the USA population is part of a family that is affected by someone with an addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. 90% of those active with addiction live with a family or a significant other. In families with active addiction you will see a significant amount of morbidity (illness) and mortality (death) for the members in the family.

Many believe that those who suffer from addiction should be able to “stop” using drugs and/or alcohol and should be able to “stay stopped”. As a result, families become extremely frustrated, bewildered, angry, frightened when their loved one continues to use drugs and alcohol despite warnings, threats, consequences and even treatment for the addiction.

Families play a large role in assisting the individual’s addiction to continue by enabling the loved one, although they do not realize they are doing this. Family education and treatment as part of the addiction treatment has shown to improve outcomes both for the one with addiction as well as the family.

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

A two-day program designed to help those who suffer from or love someone who suffers from addiction.

DAY ONE - Friday, January 25th, 2019, 5:00pm - 8:00pm (snacks will be provided)

DAY TWO - Saturday, January 26, 2019, 10:00am - 2:30pm (a light lunch will be served)

The presenter, Janina Kean is an internationally recognized expert and spokesperson in the field of behavioral health disorders with a specialization in management and treatment of substance abuse that co-occur with mental health disorders. She introduced treatment for opiate addiction in China's Yunnan Province Opiate Triangle of the World, taught treatment for alcohol addiction in Saint Petersburg, Russia, and converted a 12-step treatment program in the United States to an evidenced based medical model for substance use disorder. She now comes to Nantucket to help Families and their loved ones who suffer from behavioral health and substance abuse disorders.

Pickleball

Originally invented as a backyard game for children, Pickleball has become the fastest growing sport in the United States. Pickleball is a racquet sport, combining the skills of badminton, ping pong and tennis, that is played on a court similar in size to a badminton court.

Pickleball was created to accommodate all ages and all skill levels and is quite easy for beginners to learn. A very social and quick-moving activity, Pickleball can also be played competitively and has great appeal for more experienced players wanting a fast-paced athletic challenge. For more information about the sport, its history, and videos of players at all levels visit www.usapa.org, the official site of the USA Pickleball Association. 

Players will want to wear sneakers and comfortable workout or gym-style clothes. If you have your own racquet, please bring it.  Otherwise, some equipment for play will be available for use.

 

Choose to pay the Drop In Fee of $5 per class or a monthly pass. Session I begins on Wednesday, January 16th, 5:30 to 7:30 PM.
