Video: Autism and problems of self-medication, drugs & alchohol

Autism Hangout


Life on the autism spectrum comes with challenges, some more difficult than others. Complicating the situation is falling into the bad choice of "self medication" using drugs or alcohol that can lead to addiction. If you know someone like that -- or that has been you, and you're caught up in ongoing trouble with the law and or jail, there's good news on the horizon. Please welcome someone who has been there and done that with family, author Claudia Curry.
