WEBINAR: The Impact of Addiction Within the Family Enterprise System

April 7 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT

Addiction will impact approximately 45 million individuals and 120 million families in the US, including owners and heirs of family firms. Research conducted by ReGENERATION indicate that approximately 50% of family firms that retain a professional family business consultant have an embedded addictive disorder within their family. Owners and advisors who work with a family enterprise will likely have to address an addictive disorder to prevent chaos in the business. Jim Hutcheson is the recognized leader on addictive disorders in family businesses and has served as Chairman of the largest residential treatment programs in North America.

This Webinar has been created as a forum for the family business community to open the discussion, bring greater outcomes and lasting solutions when encountering addictive disorders

Five-Key Takeaways:

  1. Understand the impact of addiction within the family enterprise system
  2. Understand “Family Systems” practice related to addiction (trust, communication, etc.)
  3. Assist the professional advisor/consultant with the identification of addictive disorders
  4. When necessary, how to start the conversation of treatment (intervention)
  5. Learn about different treatment alternatives (one size does not fit all)
