The discussion will include general background on substance use; how feelings of anxiety, fear, stress and/or worry during the current global pandemic may contribute to increased use; resources and coping mechanisms that may help; and treatment and harm reduction strategies that could help those struggling with addiction; as well as time for questions and answers with all attendees.
