Supporting Successful Outcomes for People with Disabilities in their Recovery from Addiction
More than 60 million adults in the U.S. report living with a disability. Adults with disabilities often have higher rates of chronic illnesses compared to the general population, and they also report more barriers to healthcare due to factors such as cost and access. (Source: CDC).

Addiction to substances such as alcohol and other prescription and non-legal drugs is a public health crisis that impacts our local families and communities. Too often youth and adults with disabilities may “self-medicate” with substances to help them cope with physical and emotional pain, social isolation, and financial stress.

Join us for a FREE learning series about supporting people with disabilities in their recovery from addiction. This series is sponsored by SAMHSA's Opioid Response Network and supported by Walton Options for Independent Living in Augusta, GA.

All sessions are Thursdays at 2:00 pm ET for 75 minutes and will be hosted by Mr. Stancil Tootle.
