Conference Series

Presenter: Jason Snyder, BA

Director, Drug and Alcohol Division of Rehabilitation and Community Providers Association (RCPA)

Interweaving a personal narrative with research, Jason Snyder will tell the story of how addiction has affected his immediate and extended family. He will discuss the evidence supporting genetics, environment and mental health as underlying causes of addiction in his family. Recounting his two brothers’ deaths, his own recovery from addiction and the impact of addiction on his extended family and subsequent generations, Jason will offer suggestions for using this information more broadly in treatment, prevention and intervention efforts.
