Withdrawing from ‘Withdrawal’: The Language of Addiction Matters
We need to change language like junkie, addict, and alcoholic if we are to lessen the stigma and negativity that saturates the perception of drug addiction.
We recently met up with Chef Jesse Schenker, executive chef and owner of The Gander and author of All or Nothing: One Chef’s Appetite for the Extreme. We’re thrilled that Schenker will be the VIP chef at our All-Star Tasting event on May 31, 2017 in New York City and are grateful for his honesty in sharing his recovery story with us.
If you’ll be in New York City on May 31, please join us at our All-Star Tasting event where you can meet Chef Jesse Schenker and other all-star chefs and athletes for a night of culinary delights to benefit the Partnership for Drug-Free Kids.
