Substance abuse relapse seminar set for Thursday

The Alliance for Substance Abuse Progress and Columbus Regional Health are hosting a workshop on opioid abuse relapses from 5:30 to 7  p.m. Sept. 27th at Mill Race Center.

Dr. Teddy Saddoris will lead the presentation. The goal is to help limit the frequency of relapses. It will help identify triggers and cravings that could hamper recovery and also talk about how to cope with stressful situations.

The session is intended for those already in recovery from a substance abuse disorder, their parents, friends and others who care about them.

The workshop is free.
