As alcohol and drugs continue to be a growing problem in the United States, how can those working to advance the issue help shift the national dialogue to better focus on solutions?

The November session of Hot Topics in Practice will explore how the way we talk about alcohol, drugs, and addiction is crucial to answering this question. The one-hour webinar will review framing principles for those communicating about alcohol and drugs to help practitioners, journalists, advocates, and other communicators tell a new story about this urgent and timely issue.

Register today.
