Thank you Barbara for sharing your story.
Julie - thank you for underscoring the importance of collaborative work!
Just wanted to offer up an extra resource that may be helpful, there is an app called the 30 day Alcohol experiment that is focused on the scientific side of drinking with daily lessons and supports that may be of assistance to those living in the community where AA may not be an option. Could prove useful also for the non geriatric population in effort to assist in future prevention from the side effects from Alcohol use as many have been affected with excessive Alcohol use due to the pandemic.
We ask that participants please take a few minutes to complete our post-participation survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/QY369Z2
Upon completion of the survey, a certificate of attendance will be sent to you.
Hi Barbara, Thank you so much for sharing your story! Your story warms my heart. I am wondering what were some of the most helpful things to hear (or questions) from professionals supporting you when you were contemplating change?
