Topic: Mental Health
Speaker(s): Steven Goldy, DDS; Matthew Korn, DDS, CDA Well-Being Committee chair & webinar moderator; R. Michael


COVID-19 is creating new challenges for individuals who are struggling with or recovering from substance use. With routines uprooted and social support disrupted, many are turning toward alcohol or other forms of coping mechanisms, and they are finding it difficult to maintain sobriety. Feelings of loneliness, anxiety and boredom can be triggers to relapse. Through a confidential-participation webinar, CDA members can join a peer-led panel discussion about tools to cope during times of hardship.
