*Partial and full scholarships will also be available. Please visit our website to request support to attend. We want everyone who is interested in this material to be able to join us.*

Join Jen Stovall for this important two-day class on ways we can best support our clients and community who are experiencing addiction. This widespread and pervasive imbalance is often overlooked and when it is addressed, many of the treatments utilized are harmful and misguided. As herbalists who operate outside of mainstream healthcare, we can play a valuable role in supporting a community of people who are often ignored and stigmatized and therefore, receive poor health care.

Over the weekend, Jen will share tips she's gleaned from over 15 years of working with people experiencing addiction using herbal medicine and the NADA acudetox protocol and will address ways we can do this both on a one-to-one basis, as well as in a community-wide structure. We will unpack the concept of addiction, explore the theory of harm reduction, and examine different substances using an energetic framework. We will cover different tools we can utilize to support folks who are dealing with addiction such as herbs, ear beads, and nutrition. We will discuss which body systems are most affected by specific drugs, what patterns those effects commonly follow, and how herbs and nutrition can mitigate these patterns of imbalance.

Rather than only discussing herbs we can utilize with people who want to quit using, we will also cover ways that herbs can support folks who choose to continue using along with common ailments they might experience that we can address herbally. Join us to discuss this necessary work and explore ways that we as herbalists can best support those in our communities who are experiencing addiction.
