Family Ties: Substance Use Disorder from the Family's Perspective
The effects of substance use disorders (SUD) on families, siblings and caregivers can be overwhelming and often misunderstood. But there is hope. And there is help.

Learn more during The Family’s Perspective, a new, experience-driven webinar from the National Council’s Substance Use Interest Group on Wednesday, March 8 (1-2 p.m. ET).

Joining us to share her personal insights and story is Joanne Peterson, founder and executive director of Learn to Cope (LTC), a nonprofit, peer-led support network founded in 2004.

After years of watching family members struggle with opioid addiction, Peterson was motivated to use her voice to bring about change. In this webinar, she will highlight:

*The challenges family members face living with – or loving something with – an SUD.

*The critical need for support when it comes to family members, siblings and caregivers.

*The importance of education when it comes to SUD and its far-reaching effects.

*The origins of LTC and how it’s connecting people to high-quality care.

Join us for this discussion about Peterson’s upbringing with siblings who experienced mental illness and addiction, and how those experiences inspired her to help others heal.
