An Overview of Addiction and Codependency

  • Date: Monday, February 15th, 2016
  • Time: 7:15 P.M. to 9:00 PM
  • Place: Aldersgate United Methodist Church

    On Monday evening February 15, 2016, New Directions welcomes Frann Anderson, LCSW, CADC to give an overview of addiction and codependent relationships.
    She will identify the difference between social substance use, substance abuse and substance dependence. She will define codependency, how it occurs in the family of origin, and how the dynamic continues into adulthood.
    Treatment options and support systems for those affected by addiction and codependent relationships will also be covered.

    Frann Anderson is a licensed clinical social worker and a certified alcohol and drug counselor. In addition to clinical work, Ms. Anderson recently returned to the Division of Substance Abuse and Mental Health as the Director of Alcohol and Drug Services for the State of Delaware

    Unless otherwise noted, support meetings are held on the second and fourth Monday of each month and educational meetings are held on the third Monday. All meetings are open to the public. However, support meetings are only open to persons 18 years of age and older who have depression or bipolar disorder, and their adult family and friends. The New Directions Charter and tax status legally restricts us to adult participants. All meetings are free; to defray expenses, donations are requested but not required.
