  • Tobacco Cessation and Addiction Recovery | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Special Interest
    Tobacco Cessation and Addiction Recovery - “Tobacco Cessation and Addiction Recovery” will be presented on Tuesday April 28, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Anna Byberg, LLMSW, CAADC; Program Coordinator, Dawn Farm Spera Recovery Center; and Aaron Suganuma, BSW. Despite downward trends in the prevalence of tobacco use in the general population, tobacco use remains a significant problem among people with alcohol/other drug addiction. Research has demonstrated that tobacco cessation has positive effects on recovery and relapse rates, and a smoke-free policy does not adversely affect treatment retention. This program will describe the prevalence of tobacco addiction among people with alcohol and other drug addictions, the relationship between tobacco use and recovery, and information on tobacco cessation techniques targeted to people with alcohol/other drug addiction. 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. For information, please contact Mark Albulov LLMSW, Dawn Farm Education Series Coordinator, at 734-485-8725 or info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.

  • In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe? | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Special Interest
    In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe? - “In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?” will be presented on Tuesday May 26, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Mark A. Weiner, MD; and Matthew Statman, LMSW, CAADC; University of Michigan Collegiate Recovery Program Manager. Addiction is widely recognized as a chronic illness best treated with long-term monitoring and support. Primary health care settings are natural places for this care to be provided, and studies have demonstrated improved outcomes when people in recovery receive regular health care delivered by recovery-proficient providers. However, health care providers are often poorly equipped to meet the needs of this population and iatrogenic relapse is not uncommon. It's been said that the doctor's office is a dangerous place for people in recovery from addiction. It's also been said that recovering people are terrible patients. This program discusses whether these statements are fair, and why healthcare providers are essential allies for long term recovery. The program provides a basic overview of the neurobiological of addiction and its implications for health care consumers and providers, lists specific concerns related to medications, describes ways in which people in recovery from alcohol/other drug addiction can take responsibility for their health and discusses how health care providers can assist with sustaining recovery. 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. For information, please contact Mark Albulov LLMSW, Dawn Farm Education Series Coordinator, at 734-485-8725 or info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.

  • How to Support Recovery and Not Support Addiction | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Special Interest
    How to Support Recovery and Not Support Addiction - “How to Support Recovery and Not Support Addiction” will be presented on Tuesday June 16, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Charles F. Gehrke, MD, FACP, FASAM. The course of an individual’s alcohol/other drug addiction may often be influenced by family members, friends, employers and others. The disease of addiction is often poorly understood, and the behaviors of a person with addiction are often bewildering to family and friends. Well-intentioned but poorly-informed individuals may inadvertently act in ways that can enable addiction to progress. When all else has failed - what does work when confronted with a loved one’s addiction? What does not work? What can others do to help? What does not help? What role does an individual play in supporting another person’s recovery process? These and other questions will be addressed in order to assist participants to find effective methods to successfully support another person’s recovery, avoid enabling another person’s addiction, and maintain their own health and well-being. 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.
