"What’s a Town to Do About Addiction? A Conversation with Maia Szalavitz, Author of Unbroken Brain: A Revolutionary New Way of Understanding Addiction” will be held in Blacksburg, Virginia on Wednesday, August 3, 2016 at 7:00 PM at New River Valley Community Services, 700 University City Boulevard, Blacksburg, VA. The event is free and open to the public and will include a time for questions from the audience for the author.

Unbroken Brain braids together three narratives: Maia Szalavitz’s personal story, what the science reports about addiction, and a call to action to change belief-based addictions treatment to evidence-based treatment.

If you could be a member of the audience, what question would you ask Maia Szalavitz?
