Session Description: For many individuals in treatment the isolation and increased stress that the pandemic has brought with it has made the road to recovery more challenging, and for many who unwittingly use alcohol or nicotine to manage mild mental health issues such as anxiety, this has been a difficult time. The prohibition on both alcohol and cigarette sales has also had its impact on many.
Now, perhaps more than ever, under these unprecedented times, it is vital that we are cognisant of the need to connect as EAPA practitioners with those in treatment or struggling with substance abuse.
