The Row House: The Roots of Addiction
May 9, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
In 2016, 4,642 Pennsylvanians died of drug overdoses. That’s thirteen human beings each day on average. And the rate of overdoses of all kinds continues to rise. What is at the root of these and other addictions? Mr. Fair will suggest a connection between our experience with attachment in our youngest years and our thirst for satisfaction as we get older. We are a marvelous mess, humans. But there is hope. Drawing on his own extensive experience as a licensed counselor, and considering the work of attachment disorder researchers like Dr. Susan Johnson, Bob will lead us into the mysterious, sometimes painful theater of our emotions. Please join this critical conversation if you or someone you love is battling dependence on opioids, pornography, alcohol, or even “less destructive” behaviors such as gambling, gluttony, and perfectionism. This Forum could literally save a life.
