Triangle : 01-28-2017

On January 28th, We were lucky to have Jane E. Albers - The Board President of North Carolina Foundation for Alcohol and Drug Studies - as our speaker in drug addiction awareness seminar. Jane, who has 34-years of practice in the field, shared her experiences with listeners. In her presentation, Jane first emphasized the destructive nature of various substances including opioids, marijuana, and alcohol; then she warned us about the increasing rate of prescribed drug addiction. Jane mentioned the biological impacts of these chemicals on our brain and highlighted the threat of these substances pose to our family and friends. She finished her speech with current treatment modalities pointing out that drug addiction is treatable brain disorder and professional help is always available for patients. After the speech, Jane joined us at our luncheon.
