This webinar gives us an inside look at what sobriety looks like in the entertainment industry and beyond.

The Hidden Epidemic


The Hidden Epidemic – In recent years, the rise in overdose deaths has less to do with increases in the rate of addiction and more to do with exposure to fentanyl and other synthetic opioids. Why is that? Interestingly, many people who died from an overdose were never addicts. They simply did not know that their drugs contained fentanyl, how harmful this substance can be, and/or what to do in a fentanyl-induced emergency. In this educational webinar, Deidre Fitzpatrick and Dr. Mario San Bartolomé will provide the most up-to-date facts regarding fentanyl and synthetic opioids as well as discuss how harm reduction and prevention techniques can aid in this ever-growing hidden epidemic. Furthermore, they will share how people can easily test drugs for fentanyl and how to reverse its effects if someone is overdosing.

Not Your 1980’s Marijuana


Not Your 1980’s Marijuana – What are the facts about the marijuana of today? We know it contains over 100 potentially psychoactive ingredients, and only a few of them have ever been studied. So, what is the risk or reward when it comes to our youth and young adult population? Many people assume treatment programs hold a rigid line on total abstinence, yet there is a lot of gray area. In this webinar, clinical psychiatrist & Medical Director at Yellowbrick, Dr. David Baron presents the latest medical and scientific research, and Director of Client Services at Hired Power, Brandi Bradbury presents case studies as well as what treatment providers, parents and the community at large need to know to gain confidence and understanding.

Together, Nanette and Dr. Reedy explore the myth of cause-and-effect when it comes to our relationship with those we love, the ways in which we inadvertently reinforce dynamics that we don’t want to see continue, and how attachment wounds and patterns from childhood often provide faulty templates for current relationships. At the end of this webinar, Dr. Reedy and Nanette answer questions from our live webinar audience.
