Virtual* Addictions 101 Presently, the word “addiction” has unfortunately become a common word in the news and millions of households across the United States. The standard disease model of addiction has become the most commonly adapted understanding as the government’s solution to this epidemic is treatment and medication.

Having alternative understandings on addiction can facilitate the engagement of Coach and Recoveree while removing barriers to recovery. * Virtual Training via Zoom.
