2021 Kentucky Derby Event

And they're off...  Yes, it might be the pretty dresses, fancy hats, and sharp-dressed men that are getting us excited about this event, but who can blame us?  Don't worry, this party will certainly last longer than 2 minutes.  Join us for some hors d'oeuvres, mint juleps, and time with friends as we celebrate the day and watch the race.  We will have a few awards to give out including best hat, best dressed, and a raffle for a rose bouquet.

Parent Program- Featuring Stephen Hill with Speak Sobriety

 
How does 1 of 4 brothers, all raised in the same home by loving and supportive parents, end up addicted to drugs for over a decade while the other 3 brothers take the positive path to business school and law school without any substance use issues whatsoever? Stephen answers this question by showing parents, through his story, how his personality traits and way of thinking was—and still is—very different from his 3 brothers.
When speaking to parents, Stephen places a great deal of emphasis on prevention through protection. Using his personal experiences with his own parents, as well as knowledge gained through working in the field of prevention, addiction treatment and recovery, Stephen pinpoints potential threats and warning signs for parents to look out for.
Parents never think it’s going to happen to their kid. But when it does, most have no idea where to turn or how to handle it. Stephen’s parents, like many parents who have a child suffering from a substance use disorder, dealt with the emotional and financial hardship as a result of their child’s addiction. Members of their community, friends, and even family labeled Stephen with stigmas that made it increasingly difficult for him to recover, for his parents to confide in others and seek help for their son’s drug addiction.
By sharing his personal experience and his parent’s experiences openly and honestly, Stephen hopes families can avoid some of the costly hardships that were part of his journey. He stresses the importance of parents keeping an open line of communication with their children and how fear of punishment and harsh consequences prevents teens from being open with their parents. Stephen’s presentation will leave parents with a better understanding of substance use disorder prevention, treatment and support.
