    Please join Compass Health Network, Preferred Family Healthcare, and Lindenwood University, on November 7th, 2019, 7:00pm at Lindenwood University Harmon Hall, for a free screening of "Not my Child." This documentarty explores different paths to recovery and looks at the disease of addiction. We hope that by watching this film families will feel more equipped to address substance use in their children, foster more open conversations surrounding substance use and find hope that recovery is possible. There will also be a short Q A with integrated health staff present.
