The following testimonial from a C2ST supporter demonstrates the scope of our programming:
“A few years ago you hosted a talk called “The Science of Addiction”…I am a mother of a son who has been battling heroin addiction (substance abuse disorder)…As a person who taught and believed in science, I was frustrated going to family meetings where I was told repeatedly we were powerless. Then I attended the lecture hosted by C2ST and asked the question of what we could do to help support their research…Thank you so much! This lecture gave me direction and helped me feel like I had a purpose.”
