Event Educates, Unites Families Impacted by Addiction

Burlington Labs, partnering with the VT Department of Health and the United Way, hosted the first annual Families Impacted by Addiction event on Nov. 10 in South Burlington, VT.

Nearly 60 people attended the event, which featured a panel discussion with people in recovery and their family members, as well as a presentation about how addiction impacts decision-making skills. The day also gave attendees the opportunity to connect with others who are also supporting a family member battling addiction.


Mrs. Vermont America 2013, Hannah Kirkpatrick, and her husband Chris spoke about how a couple can support each other through addiction and recovery.

It was a successful event that we hope to build on in Burlington and in other communities we serve throughout the country.
