The Aleutian Pribilof Islands Association (APIA) has started a six-week intensive program for men focused on maintaining a healthy, substance-free lifestyle in Unalaska.
Clinician Delta Bedard is leading the workshop. She said it'll cover 12 topics, including communication, stress management, conflict resolution, and setting healthy boundaries.
"A lot of times with addiction, people live life by default," said Bedard. "They respond to one crisis after another, especially when they're in the throes of addiction. This is going to teach them how to live life with intent."
