  • | 6:30pm - 9:00pm | Local Events, addiction, recovery
    - “The Recovering Body” will be presented on Tuesday May 24, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jennifer Matesa; author, educator and speaker. 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. Most discussions of abstinent addiction recovery focus strictly on developing spiritual approaches to life’s problems and challenges. But, this virtually ignores the experience of the body. The facts are that the body undergoes serious changes and damage during active addiction, and many recovering people wind up frightened that they have wrecked their neurology permanently. Full recovery asks us to change the ways we relate to our bodies, beginning with the discipline of resisting the mind’s obsession about external “solutions” and grounding oneself inside one’s body, which lives only in the present. This presentation will explore five approaches to addiction recovery that combine physical practices with the traditional spiritual enlargement of 12-step abstinent recovery. These approaches have abundant scientific research backing them, making them not only a way to gain confidence and “feel better” in recovery but also to prevent relapse and become fit to contribute to society. 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.

  • | 7:30pm - 9:00pm | Local Events, addiction, recovery
    - “In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?” will be presented on Tuesday May 31, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Mark A. Weiner, MD; Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine; 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.
