Thomas Higdon, Baltimore Ethical Society (BES) President and a survivor of substance use disorder, spoke on September 24, 2017 at BES about “Addiction, Relapse, and Recovery”.
Substance use disorder (SUDs), more colloquially known as addiction, impacts the lives of millions of people. Alcohol alone claims the lives of over 88,000 people in the United States each year, making alcohol the fourth leading preventable cause of death in our country.

Thomas will give a general introduction to SUDs and then discuss his personal experience with addiction, relapse, and recovery.
