    - St. Valentine's Day celebrates the feasts of two Christian martyrs of this name. One, a priest and physician, was beaten and beheaded on the Flaminan Way at Rome, Italy, Feb 14, AD 269, during the reign of Emperor Claudius II. Another Valentine, the bishop of Terni, is said to have been beheaded, also on the Flaminian Way at Rome, Feb 14 (possibly in a later year). Both history and legend are vague and contradictory about details of the Valentines, and some say that Feb 14 was selected for the celebration of Christian martyrs as a diversion from the ancient pagan observance of Lupercalia. An old legend has it that birds choose their mates on Valentine's Day. Now it is one of the most widely observed unofficial holidays. It is an occasion for the exchange of gifts (usually books, flowers, or sweets) and greeting cards with affectionate or humorous messages.

    - President's Day observes the birthdays of George Washington (Feb 22nd) and Abraham Lincoln (Feb 12). With the adoption of the Monday Holiday Law (which moved the observance of George Washington's birthday from Feb 22 to the third Monday in February), some of the specific significance of the event was lost and added impetus was given to the popular description of that holiday as President's Day as a day to honor all former presidents of the US, though the federal holiday is still Washington's Birthday. Annually, the third Monday in February.

    - “Collegiate Recovery Programs: Supporting Second Chances” will be presented on Tuesday February 16, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Mary Jo Desprez, MA; Director, Wolverine Wellness, University Health Service, University of Michigan; and Matthew Statman, LMSW, CAADC; University of Michigan Collegiate Recovery Program Manager. The transition to a college environment can pose significant risk to a recovering student and to students at risk for alcohol/other drug problems. Many colleges and universities, including the University of Michigan, have developed programs to help recovering students maintain their recovery, excel academically and have a normative college experience apart from the culture of alcohol and other drug use. Research demonstrates exceptionally high rates of academic success and sustained recovery among students who participate in Collegiate Recovery Programs. This presentation will provide an overview of the national and local efforts to build recovery support programs on college campuses, discuss support that is provided to recovering students by collegiate recovery programs, and provide information about what parents and students can look for as they explore their options for pursuing a degree of higher education. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from getting help and getting well. The Education Series is designed to help people with alcoholism or other drug addictions to achieve, maintain and strengthen their recovery; assist family members and friends to understand and support recovery in people they care about as well as maintain their own health and well-being; aid professionals and students in various disciplines to work effectively with people with addictions and their families and support their recovery process; and contribute to a community culture supportive of recovery. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by NAADAC (National Association for Addiction Professionals) and MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each program. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.

    - “Suicide Prevention and Addiction” will be presented on Tuesday February 23, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Raymond Dalton, MA, CAADC; Coordinator, Dawn Farm Outpatient Services. The prevalence of suicide attempts and suicide completion among people with alcohol/other drug addiction is significantly higher than in the general population, and the period of early recovery from addiction is especially high risk. Family, friends and professionals are often strategically positioned to recognize potential suicidal thinking and intervene to help. Learning about the signs of suicidal thinking and how to intervene when a person may be contemplating suicide can reduce the barriers to suicidal individuals obtaining help and potentially prevent suicide deaths. This program will raise awareness of the prevalence of suicide among people with addiction, describe signs of suicidal thinking, and discuss effective ways to offer support and help to people who may be contemplating suicide. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from getting help and getting well.

The powerful blast left a crater 200 feet wide and several stories deep. The cost for damage to the building and disruption of business for the 360 companies with offices in the Center exceeded $591 million. Fifteen people - the fundamentalist Muslim cleric Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman and 14 of his followers were indicted for the bombing.

  • | NATL - Seasonal
    - In 2016 we add one day, February 29th, to bring our calendar more nearly into accord with the seasons. Under the Julian calendar of 46 BC every forth year was a leap year, on the assumption that it took Earth 365.25 days to orbit the sun. However, Earth's orbit period is actually 365.24219 days. For more than 1,600 years the Julian calendar was used, the calendar got out of sync with the seasons. The Gregorian calendar made just one small change: a leap day is added to the calendar every four years except for century years that are not exactly divisible by 400. Traditionally leap year is a time during which women may propose marriage to men.

    - “Does Treatment Work?” will be presented on Tuesday March 15, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, FACOG, FASAM, CRMO, ABAM. Recent publications claim to define research-supported definitive truths about the root causes of addiction and efficacy of treatment modalities; however conclusions are conflicting and have been subject to divergent interpretations. Feel confused? Dr. Christensen will review the recent criticisms of treatment for addiction including Twelve Step, residential, and medication assisted therapy, the scientific studies that do and do not support their use and other controversial issues. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from getting help and getting well.

    - “The History of Narcotics Anonymous” will be presented on Tuesday March 22, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Chris Budnick, MSW, LCSW, LCAS, CCS, Vice President of Programs for The Healing Place of Wake County; and Boyd Pickard, Research Assistant at the Illinois Addiction Studies Archives. There will be a reception preceding the presentation from 6:30 to 7:30 pm, with snacks, beverages, and an opportunity to meet and socialize. Narcotics Anonymous (N.A.) constitutes one of the most important addiction recovery mutual aid resources. Founded in the culturally hostile environment of the 1950s, NA now carries its message of hope at more than 63,000 weekly meetings in 132 countries, while NA’s unique history, culture, and distinctiveness are routinely obscured within references to “A.A. and other Twelve Step programs.” This presentation will review the history of NA, with a particular emphasis on the role members of Alcoholics Anonymous played in the birth and early evolution of N.A. Join these eminent NA historians to learn about the legislation that led to the criminalization of addiction in the U.S., the unique contributions Narcotics Anonymous has made and the scope of NA today.
