​Video about starting your own learning center

What type of learning center will best match you needs and the needs of the family/community. There are Four Levels I-IV to consider.  If you educate the family, then we need to also  educate their community.

When we look at the drug epidemic we find it goes everywhere in our community. In order to set up a learning center, we too need to go everywhere, everywhere it goes. Therefore, we provide a learning center concept in such a way with four levels I-IV to consider where is the drug and how to get knowledge laminated into that area. Here is a hint, follow the family as they move through the community.

Video about the programs you can offer

There are several programs that compose the offering of a Family Solution Finder Learning Centers. The reason is we want our families to run into this learning series no matter where they go within the community.  

Very often we see family members that are suffering in our community living with someone who has a substance use disorder. How can we help? Maybe they would like to take some learning seminars that can help them understand the key issues they are likely to face on this journey. We won't know until we ask. It will not be there unless you start a Family Solution Finder Learning Centers. So you see  it all starts with you, not them.  It needs to be made available before it can exist.

Video about community education & collaboration

We need to start to chatter around the topic of the family members and substance use disorders. It needs to become a community conversation and this needs to be done in the public forum, not behind closed doors or at special meetings. The public needs examples of how to have these type of open conversations and it will take local leadership to be the example.
