Join MusiCares, Clinical Operations Manager of Monument, Sabrina Spotorno, LSW CASAC, and author and public speaker Janet Pfaff for an honest conversation about reaching out, connecting and offering hope and solutions to someone you love who may have a drinking problem. If your loved one is struggling with alcohol use, it can be challenging to figure out how to help them. This discussion will highlight the signs and symptoms of unhealthy drinking and alcohol use disorders, and tips on how to approach the challenging conversation with your loved one to best support them while caring for yourself, too.

MEET OUR PANELISTS:
SABRINA SPOTORNO LSW, CASAC
Sabrina Spotorno is Clinical Operations Manager of Monument and a therapist trained in several modalities, including Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavior Therapy and Narrative Therapy.
