Memorable Cases Part II
Hey Kings and Queens! Thank you for checking out our latest episode. We are winding down the season and getting ready for the holidays so we had to hit you with another Memorable Cases episode. In Part II of Memorable cases we discuss our experience with cases dealing with substance abuse. Although there are times we laugh and joke during the telling of these stories substance abuse is no laughing matter. It is detrimental to the person and most of all the loved ones of the person with substance misuse disorder.
If you need resources in reference to substance abuse please check out please call the National Substance abuse hotline offered by SAMHSA 1-800-662-4357.
Thank you for listening and supporting. Also check out our new book https://linktr.ee/queensofsocialwork . And look out for other projects we have coming out.
