Tabloids vs. Tough Truths: Real Stories of Addiction and Recovery

Social media sites and tabloid headlines love this story: another celebrity in rehab! Lindsay Lohan gets 90 days! Zac Efron's struggle with cocaine! Along the same lines, the overdose death stories - Cory Monteith, Amy Winehouse, Philip Seymour Hoffman - play out as the tragedies of doomed, excessive stars, while their everyday counterparts occur much more quietly all around us.

What do the sensationalized celebrity stories tell us and what do they miss about addiction and recovery? In the memoir Glass Castle, what are the far less glamorous stories about addiction and its consequences? A panel of faculty and students will talk about these issues and will share their own recovery stories.
