Chemical Dependency vs Mental Health: What does Behavioral Health Mean for Recovery?
Columbia River Mental Health Foundation (CRMHF) will welcome Dr. Marica Roi of Clark College’s Addiction Counseling Education Department as guest speaker at their 3rd Annual Luncheon and Behavioral Health Community Service Awards at the Vancouver Hilton from 11:30am-1pm.
With over 20 years’ experience in the Chemical Dependency Treatment and Education field, Dr. Roi brings a wealth of knowledge and insight into the topic of addiction treatment and the recent move in the health care industry to a more comprehensive approach to treating addiction and the often co-occuring mental health issues. She’ll help explain why this change in understanding and approach can lead to better chances of successful recovery and provide suggestions on how luncheon guests can help support a loved one living with addiction.
