The 6th annual Flight Attendant Drug and Alcohol Program (FADAP) conference just concluded this week in Baltimore, Maryland. This year representatives from Local Council 6, 7, 8, 11, 12, 21, 37, 42, 60, 62, 64 and 65 and over 350 participants and 27 airlines were in attendance. Participants included Flight Attendants, Flight Attendants in recovery, Employee Assistance Representatives and Airline Management. Over the three day conference some of the subjects covered were:
- New ways of intervening
- Addiction is a brain disease
- Forgiveness: an essential pathway to healing
- Addiction trauma and recovery
- Treating addiction, and co-occurring mental health issues for Flight Attendants
We commend our colleagues who continue to step forward to do this important work on behalf of our Flight Attendant community, and we thank each of them for their commitment as advocates for all Members.
