Breaking Intergenerational Patterns of Addictions, Trauma
and Dark Secrets with Individuals and Families

Some people can trace patterns of addiction and substance use related deaths within their family for four or five generations. Sad are the stories of parents who get sober and suddenly find themselves grieving the overdose death of a son or daughter. Or a father and son who meet for the first time while incarcerated. Each arrested for drug related offenses.

In this presentation you will learn strategies to help break intergenerational patterns of addiction. A partial list of topics includes: risk factors and pathways of  intergenerational addiction, unique risks for children  of parents with substance use disorders, Fetal Alcohol Spectrum disorder as a risk factor and intervention strategies, Co-occurring conditions and trauma as risk factors, the impact of siblings on the intergenerational transmission of addiction, parenting practices and  cultural rituals which help reduce intergenerational transmission of  addiction, the role of addictions treatment, persons in recovery and the community in  breaking the pattern.
