WASHTENAW FAMILIES AGAINST NARCOTICS PRESENTS

From the Front Lines: Military Veterans and the Fight Against Addiction

LIVE VIRTUAL FORUM | Monday, March 8th @ 7 PM EST

As our nation wages an ongoing war against substance misuse, U.S. military veterans are fighting their own set of challenges that can often lead to addiction. The March Washtenaw FAN Family Forum will address the unique difficulties that veterans face related to addiction — both during and after the military — and the journey to recovery.

This dynamic panel discussion will feature Sazha Alexandra Ramos, founder of Recovery Organization Resources; Eric Fretz, Ph.D., director of Michigan State Selective Services; and Jamaine Atkins, founder of Any Lengths Sober Living and recipient of the 2020 Michigan Department of Health & Human Services Hometown Hero Award. Learn more about this month's speakers here.
