Children and families across the nation have been heavily burdened because of continued substance use and addiction. Yet despite the devastation and heartache, substance use continues?  Let’s explore the science of addiction, including the impact of stress and trauma on the brain as well as the use of substances to manage when healthy coping skills are not available.  Participants will walk away with a greater understanding of why this issue continues, even when the consequences are so devastating to children and families.
