Speaker Event

Ozanam House is pleased to present our second annual speaker event:

The Globalization of Addiction: Healing Through Community

“…. the opposite of addiction is not sobriety. It is human connection”

Addictions have reached global proportions in our free-market society, as people are being torn from close ties to family, culture and traditional spirituality. Bruce K. Alexander offers a social perspective on addiction, arguing that modern day pressures toward individualism and competition dislocate people from social life, and addictions provide a substitute.

Bruce K. Alexander is professor emeritus at Simon Fraser University and author of The Globalization of Addiction: A Study in Poverty of the Spirit and A History of Psychology in Western Civilization.

Join us Thursday April 30th at 7pm, Okanagan College Theatre.

Tickets are $20 ($15 for students) available at Ozanam House (2629 Richter Street), Dyck’s Pharmacists (Mission Location) and online at
