The Discovery House is pleased to announce its upcoming continuing education workshop. The workshop provides continuing education credits to attorneys and professionals that work with individuals affected by drug and alcohol addiction and those that may struggle with addiction themselves.

The workshop is entitled "Substance Abuse in the Legal Profession."
