Silver Tsunami

How to Help Seniors Navigate the Road to Recovery

In providing this e-book, I hope to help educate and bring awareness to what I call the Silver Tsunami of aging and substance abuse. This guide is for everyone. Whether you are a sufferer of substance abuse or mental health, or you are a supportive family member, social workers and healthcare professional, this book is created for you.

Shame and stigma are just two of the reasons this growing issue remains invisible and goes mostly untreated. Yet, the research is compelling: seniors who are willing to seek treatment have better outcomes than younger adults facing the exact same issue. That’s why it is imperative that we continue to highlight this issue and work together toward recovery.
