ADA Coalition of Connecticut (ADACC) Offers Special Break-out Session on ADA, Addiction and Recovery as part of conference, Virtual
As part of their annual conference, on November 18th at 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. ADACC invites people to attend the break-out session, The ADA, Addiction and Recovery. Knowing your rights, or knowing where to get information about your rights can support a recovery journey. There are thousands of people in recovery from addiction unaware of their civil rights under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The presenters from the New England ADA Center will delve into the ADA and explain an individual’s rights and an entity’s obligations as it relates to addiction and recovery. The ADA ensures that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. This includes people with alcohol use disorder and substance use disorders. Find out how the ADA addresses alcohol and substance use disorders differently. These differences will be illustrated with scenarios about alcohol, opioids, cocaine and marijuana. People with addiction are people with disabilities, too. Registration is required.
