Seniors and Addiction to Be Topic of Mountainside's Matt Eakin Wednesday

 

Mountainside Executive Vice President, Matt Eakin will speak at Wilton's Kiwanis Club Wednesday, March 1.  He will lead a conversation about how substance abuse is affecting older adults, from struggling with addiction to co-dependency and enabling.  The current opioid epidemic ravaging communities like Fairfield County will serve as a focal point for Matt’s discussion with the audience.

Mountainside is a nationally recognized drug and alcohol addiction treatment center, based in Litchfield County's town of Canaan on 75 acres in the Connecticut Berkshires.   It has recently opened an outpatient facility in Wilton.

Matthew began his career at Mountainside over 10 years ago and came to Mountainside with experience in Sales and Marketing.  He is a multi-talented professional and has helped to create and grow several teams including the Business Development, Admissions and Alumni teams.  In his first role as head of Marketing and Business Development, he was instrumental in developing industry relationships and establishing Mountainside’s reputation as a leader in addiction treatment.  Today he continues to oversee the Business Development team while working on top-level expansion projects.  One such project includes orchestrating the development and opening of Mountainside’s first off-site outpatient services center in Wilton, CT.  In his leisure time, Matthew enjoys spending time with his daughter and playing the guitar and fishing.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Silent Epidemic: Seniors and Addiction
  • Operation Medicine Cabinet
  • Grief and Addiction
  • Co-dependency and enabling “My brother is bleeding our parents into the poor house with his unending demands for money – money to support his addictions
  • Who is Mountainside
