Opioid Initiative

Hope is Dope

Join us as we discover a revolutionary approach to the understanding, treatment, and successful recovery of opioid addiction.  We are not winning the war on drugs using fear and negative energy.  Hope is Dope offers a fresh and optimistic approach to healing.  Using science and easily understood analogies from the text “Hope is Dope” by Steve Treu, this class provides insights into an alternative treatment plan that offers a clear pathway to recovery.
