Hey, What about Me? I Need to Grieve Too!
This webinar is hosted by NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals
According to the CDC, drug overdose deaths have increased by nearly 5% from 2018 to 2019. Over 70% of the 70,630 deaths in 2019 involved an opioid. Staff, peers, and others who have served and supported those experiencing addictions are not always allowed to grieve when their clients and patients die. They may also find it more challenging to process the loss. Grief is a normal response to drug overdose deaths, and sorrow can happen in response to death and non-death losses. This interactive webinar will explore the various components of grief and loss. It will encourage employers to create “workplace grieving spaces” for employees to grieve when it seems improper. It will also help participants identify healthier ways of grieving, coping, and healing after a loss.
