One Size Does Not Fit All: Choices in Recovery

September 23, 2021 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Shaw Neighborhood Library
1630 7th St NW

Are you looking to make a change in your substance use? Have you tried and feel like the treatment you received just didn’t click? Do you have an interest in learning more about the choices that exist to help you make that change? Maybe you have a friend, family member, or know someone that matches that description?

Every year millions of people seek help in their struggle with addiction, each of these people an individual with their own experiences, beliefs, and personalities. However, the vast majority of rehabs and media representation focuses on recovery in a one size
fits all manner. This leaves many behind, feeling that if they are not following the direction given by their treatment center, or recovering in the manner they see in the media that the fault lies with them when the real issue is people are extremely diverse and the options on treating them should represent that.

Please join HIPS and the Humanities Truck September 23rd at Shaw neighborhood library 1630 7th St NW, DC (right by the shaw metro station on the green & Yellow line) at 5 pm for a discussion on treatments options and ideas including 12 steps, Harm Reduction Works, SMART, MAT, Rational Recovery, Sinclair Method and more. We will also be streaming the event —

There will be a panel of speakers who have lived experience and comprehensive knowledge of the plethora of options in treatment possibilities, followed by a Q & A open discussion.
