Addiction and Families will be presented by Dr. Lynn Kleiman Malinoff, Ed.D. Substance addiction is often described as a family condition. To survive within a framework of chaos, family members often develop roles and defense mechanisms that help them to cope. This program will provide an overview of how addiction impacts each member of a family. The presenter will describe roles and behaviors that family members often acquire when living with addiction, ways in which each family member is affected by addiction in the family, and options for family members to obtain help to cope with addiction in the family. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
