Two speakers who will be part of the in-person 4th Biennial International Conference of Secular AA (ICSAA) - Washington DC, scheduled for October 28-30, 2022 - give us a sneak preview from their 2020 "Addiction, Mental Health and Recovery in thee time of Zoom and social distancing" presentation.
See what they got right about COVID life for people with substance/alcohol use disorder. See what you got right, with the facts and stats presented about those who have struggles + those who have thrived in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic. As it turns out, some of our natural instincts and reactions have been bang-on. This is Brian Gill, MSW and Dr. George Kolodner: keynote speakers December 11 2020 on our first Zoom ICSAA.
Brian Gill talks about recovery in the virtual world and the effect of social isolation on recovery.
Dr Kolodner kicks off with an virtual adaptation of Intensive Outpatient Treatment (IOP), and clinical findings with how people are coping in the early months of the pandemic. Following these two short talks, you'll hear Q&A from the packed (Zoom) house of virtual ICSAA 2020.
