The Ignored Pandemic of Substance Abuse
Session Date and Time
Wednesday, August 18, 2021, 6:00:00 PM UTC
Substance abuse is both a cause and effect when considering the breakdown of the family unit. Regardless of economic status, it's an all-too-common problem as a great number of homes and families are destroyed because of the use of both legal and illegal substances. A positive and well-structured home is extremely beneficial in preventing the abuse of alcohol and drugs in our homes, communities, and society.
