Addiction Issues in the St. Croix Valley
March 27 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm$20.00
St. Croix Valley Foundation puts its mission to work through convening – gathering individuals to address community concerns. The Conversations of the Valley luncheon speaker series (Sponsored by First State Bank & Trust) brings people and causes before our community to spark discussion and – potentially – action.
This is the 3rd of 4 topics presented in the Conversations of the Valley ‘Talking About Tough Issues’ speaker series.
Dr. Stephen Delisi is a professor of Education Solutions at Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation and Assistant Professor with the Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies. Dr. Delisi will share information on addiction as a disease and the biology behind it. He will discuss the primary drugs of addiction affecting the St. Croix Valley region and delve into how stigma can become a barrier to treatment. Dr. Delisi will leave us with information on resources available to all of us.
We thank First State Bank and Trust for their sponsorship of ‘Conversations of the Valley.’
