Geriatric Mental Health Workshop

May 10 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

There are over 2.5 million aging adults in the U.S. with an alcohol or drug problem. Abuse of these substances in older adults is one of the fastest growing health problems facing our country, yet our awareness, understanding and response to this problem sometimes falls short. In this workshop, we will:

-Explore physical and mental change in the elderly population.
-Gain an understanding of how the aging process can play a role in substance abuse in older adults.
-Get tips on symptoms, diagnosis and treatment strategies for drug and alcohol abuse.
