Join Dr. John Kelly, the first endowed professor in addiction medicine at Harvard University, for a program focused on addiction treatment and the recovery process. Dr. Kelly will help us to understand substance use disorder, addiction, remission, and recovery. We will learn about stigma and discrimination in addiction, their causes, consequences and solutions. The topic of recovery from addiction will be looked at through the lens of both culture and science. We will also explore recovery milestones to understand who needs what, when, for how long, and at what intensity.
Offered as 2 satsangs and 2 workshops (subject to change).
