This day is for families (adults) of people in addiction, including family members in recovery. It will focus on helping all members to understand addiction and how it impacts on a family.
We will seek to explain how family members adopt coping mechanisms in order to absorb the impact of the addiction on the family and explore new ways of managing the addiction.
Throughout the day there will be an emphasis on the spiritual dimension both to addiction and to the solutions.
Mick Devine MA is a therapist and has been an addiction treatment practitioner for over 20 years. He is the Clinical Director at a leading addiction treatment agency based in Cork. He has a particular interest in the role of the spirituality of the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous in the treatment of addicted persons.
