Nicole Odom-Hardnett: Shedding the Stigma of Addiction

Addiction is a taboo topic but one that needs more light shed on it. Recent worldwide statistics show that 5.5% of the population aged 15 to 64 have used illicit drugs at least once in the past year. Drug abuse is highest among those who are 18 to 25. She is the CEO of Focus Point Solutions, which operates four Focus Point Behavioral Health clinics in the Baltimore area. Nicole Odom-Hardnett works with individuals who struggle with substance abuse. She sheds awareness to destigmatize addiction, anxiety, depression, and other diagnoses that are too often ignored. She also specializes in working with blended family dynamics. Nicole has written and published three books on dating and blended families.
