GATEWAY FOUNDATION PRESENTS FREE MEN’S HEALTH WEBINAR

Free

Becoming a “Real Man” in Recovery Webinar Will Focus on Addiction Issues
and Overcoming Fears in Treatment

WHAT: Gateway Foundation, the nation’s largest nonprofit addiction treatment provider, will
host a free online webinar, Becoming a “Real Man” in Recovery, during Men’s Health Month on June 29. Addiction expert, Anthony Campobasso, LCSW, CADC, CIP, will discuss the stigma and fears that men often encounter in an addiction treatment setting.

WHY: Men frequently turn to drugs or alcohol to self-medicate when facing a mental health
issue. They also tend to suffer from substance use disorders longer than women with an increased risk of overdose. Waiting longer to seek treatment and experiencing strong withdrawal symptoms are also common among the male population. The webinar will address a common myth that “real men” can’t express themselves openly for fear of rejection. Additional topics will explore the need for wellness while encouraging men to surrender their defenses and embrace vulnerability.

WHEN: Wednesday, June 29, 2022 at 12:00 pm CT

WHERE: Register here for the Becoming a “Real Man” in Recovery webinar.
The webinar is presented by Gateway Foundation at no charge to mental health and medical professionals, and anyone interested in learning more about substance use disorders.
