Fall, 2020 

You’ve missed the camaraderie? The learning?

The networking? Getting re-energized?

Let’s have a DVPCC MeetUp!

Topic: All the Other Addictions

Substance Use Disorders know no boundaries, affecting people from every conceivable demographic. When combined with serious illness, things can get pretty messy – but we in palliative care love a good challenge, right? Come learn more about the “other” SUDs (e.g. alcohol, stimulant, sedative, etc use disorders) and share practical tips on maximizing QOL while also minimizing risk.
