If you feel like it might be a good time to refresh your understanding of your own drinking or drug use, this webinar is for you. We will briefly review the latest evidence regarding known harms, personal risk factors, and neurological pathways that can lead to abuse and dependence. Moreover, this class will explore the ways we use alcohol and drugs – the good things and the not-so-good things about our use – with the aim of helping you think more wisely about how to manage your use, including the decision of whether to quit or not. The class will conclude with practical strategies to help guide you in whatever choice you make and provide resources to support your well-being.
