Webinar Description:

Did you know that the opposite of addiction is not sobriety, it is connection? Recovery is hard. It has become more challenging as we live with uncertainty, distancing, and other barriers to connection that have recently occurred because of COVID-19. The coronavirus epidemic  and the stay-at-home safety measures we have been asked to implement create additional challenges that can have an effect on an individual’s ability to maintain sobriety. We invite you to a webinar presented by the National Network of Libraries of Medicine and several behavioral health and addiction support professionals from central Massachusetts as they share strategies, insight and practical ideas for accessing virtual resources, locating the most helpful support and sources of connection, as well as some tangible guidance for navigating the specific situations and circumstances COVID-19 is presenting to those pursuing recovery.
