CrossRoads of Southern Nevada to Begin Holding Addiction Education Sessions
Sessions will be for families suffering through addiction
Please join us, in person with a mask, or virtually, for CrossRoads of Southern Nevada, Nevada’s largest drug and alcohol addiction center, first in a series of education seminars on addiction, focused specifically on family members who may be dealing with addiction.
Millions of opiates are prescribed every year in Nevada with no real plan to get patients off of them. If you or a loved one are suffering from opiate addiction, education on the proper treatment is essential. At the seminar, we’ll cover with Dr Bradley, the proper treatment of opioid use, including:
Methadone, Bupenorphrine, or naltrexone.
We’ll also discuss Narcan, what is it, how it works, and why every family who may be dealing with opiate addiction should have it. It is available without a prescription thanks to the NV Legislature.
Alcohol and other drugs will be addressed. We will review the disease model as well as how the entire family system is impacted and the role they play. Along with medically assisted treatment, multiple therapeutic approaches will be addressed.
These topics will be broken down to easily understandable components and individually addressed over our presentation series.
WHEN: October 3, 2020. 12-2 PM PT.
WHERE: 1120 Shadow Lane
VIRTUALLY: Zoom link will be sent to RSVPs
If you’d like to attend, please RSVP here in email or to Nicole Christie, at 702-382-7746
