  • It Takes a Family: A Cooperative Approach to Lasting Sobriety | Evening | Local Events, addiction, recovery, ree, family
    It Takes a Family: A Cooperative Approach to Lasting Sobriety - “It Takes a Family: A Cooperative Approach to Lasting Sobriety” will be presented on Tuesday June 30, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm (with a reception from 6:30 to 7:30 pm and a book signing opportunity following the presentation.) This program will be presented by Debra Jay, Internationally-known Interventionist and chemical dependency specialist, speaker and trainer; popular media personality; co-author of the best-selling “Love First: A Family’s Guide to Intervention;” author of the newly-released “It Takes a Family: A Cooperative Approach to Lasting Sobriety” and other popular books. Addiction is often described as a “family disease” – but up until now, families have been mostly left out of the recovery equation, which surely contributes to the ubiquitous nature of relapse. Structured Family Recovery™ starts with a family and ends with a family recovery team. It unlocks the secrets of lasting sobriety––those used to keep addicted doctors sober––and makes them available to families. Debra Jay has created a family recovery program that both revolutionizes recovery and brings it back to its roots. This presentation will describe Structured Family Recovery,™ how it is implemented to transform families into recovery teams, and how the newly recovering person is invited to join the team. This will bring PRACTICAL INFORMATION, HELP and HOPE to individuals and families affected by addiction and to anyone who wants to learn about Structured Family Recovery™ from the expert who developed and literally “wrote the book” on this technique. 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.
