Listen to "We Need to Talk About Addiction: Live From the Berman"

Like society at large, Jewish families are grappling with how to understand, face, and live with addiction. Moderated by FedRadioDetroit’s co-host Sam Dubin, we’re pleased to bring you the audio from We Need To Talk About Addiction, an informative and important event held last month at the Berman Theatre in West Bloomfield. The panel speakers have experienced the most devastating and most determined sides of addiction. Hear their stories and the audience Q&A that followed.
