CV Mental Health offering addictions workshop

Friday, May 15, 2015 - 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Public Health Cedar Room

The effects of addiction extend far beyond the person with the problem.

The family, friends, colleagues, and employers are also impacted, and these individuals often feel powerless and unaware of what to expect and how to help.

Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance use will be offering a full day education workshop for those who are affected by someone in their life who has an addiction.

The “Addiction and Recovery Education” session will focus on what addiction and recovery are; how people change their behaviour; how to help someone with an addiction problem; self-care; and what is available locally.

This one-day group will be offered on Friday, May 15, 2015 – 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Public Health Cedar Room located at 961 England Avenue. The group is open to anyone, but if the group is nearing capacity, preference will be given to family members, with others placed on a waitlist for the next available group.

Registration is required.  Addictions counsellors Linda Bizier and Lillian Ramsden will present the workshop. Please call the Comox Valley Mental Health and Substance Use 250-331-8524 to register, or for more information.
