Save the Date – Magellan’s Addiction Awareness Webinar on September 14

What is the difference between an addiction and recreational use? Why are some people more at-risk for addiction than others? What is the difference between ‘helping’ and ‘enabling’ a friend or loved one who has an addiction?

Magellan is pleased to present a live webinar on September 14th on addiction awareness. In addition to the Magellan training staff, a Magellan certified substance abuse professional will co-present to help you:

    • Learn about addictions and their impact
    • Identify potential warning signs of an addiction
    • Find out how an addiction forms
    • Get useful tips for helping yourself or someone you care about
    • Discover resources for additional support

Any addiction, whether to drugs or alcohol, the Internet, to gambling, or any other addictive behavior, has major consequences for the person with the addiction as well as the people who care about them. This webinar is an opportunity for you to learn about addictions and how to help.

Remember, live webinars are offered to you and your family members at no cost through your SMU Employee Assistance Program administered by Magellan Health Services.
