Why’s Substance Dependency So Taboo?

February 9 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

We joke about that friend who gets super drunk, like, every weekend. We don’t really talk about the friend who gets high every. single. day. It’s much easier to laugh it off and pretend that they’re probably just doing fine, just getting that college experience. But, at what point does normal culturally-accepted consumption turn into a legitimate problem you shouldn’t turn a blind eye to? In this presentation we’ll talk about the taboo that is substance dependency. We’ll try work against the stigma, by learning HOW to talk about substance abuse, addiction, and recovery and what they look like.
