The Cyclone Model of Addiction

The Cyclone Model of Addiction was developed by Sarah Martinez to help people understand substance use disorders, powerlessness over the disease, and the spirit of recovery. Ms. Martinez eloquently articulates how substance use disorders affect the body and the mind, while providing hope for serenity and recovery—both for loved ones and their families. Family members are invited to participate in this virtual session so they may gain a deeper understanding of what their loved one’s have experienced because of their substance use disorder.
