Gain a new perspective on alcohol and drug addiction and how it might impact those they are
Identify potential warning signs that someone they love or work with may be struggling with
alcohol or drug abuse.
Learn appropriate conversation starters to have with someone they fear is struggling with
alcoholism or addiction.
In life, we tend to think that the small, seemingly insignificant choices we make on a Friday or Saturday
night will have no real impact on our lives. Archie learned firsthand how that for him is simply not true.
He will share with attendees how a series of choices he made to cover up unbelievable pain he had
inside, led to not only his first drug, but years of “just one more.”
While most attendees will not find themselves in a hospital ICU as a result of a drug overdose, most of
us will know someone who battles alcoholism or addiction. Understanding the why behind their usage
and self-destructive behaviors will allow us to remember to be kind to the person who is battling a very controlling disease.
In this powerful program, Archie will use his own personal journey to show how easily life can go off
track. Participants will also learn how to spot potential warning signs in those they are close to and how to communicate with someone headed in the wrong direction with alcohol and/or drug abuse.
