Intervention

“Intervention” will be presented on Tuesday April 21, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jeff Jay and Debra Jay; Intervention specialists, chemical dependency therapists and trainers, and best-selling authors of “Love First: A Family’s Guide to Intervention” and other books. Intervention can be a highly effective technique for initiating the recovery process in individuals suffering from chemical dependency. Through the intervention process, people who care can learn how to use love and honesty to break through the denial that keeps a person with addiction locked in the downward spiral of his/her disease and create a moment of clarity that allows a person with addiction to accept help. This program will describe how the “Love First” process of Intervention can help chemically dependent people find recovery. Key elements of the “Love First” intervention model developed by Jeff and Debra Jay will be discussed. This program by dynamic, highly experienced speakers will bring PRACTICAL INFORMATION, HELP and HOPE to anyone who cares about a chemically dependent person, and to anyone who wants to learn more about the intervention process. 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.

Relapse Prevention

“Relapse Prevention” will be presented on Tuesday June 23, 2015; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Erik Anderson LLMSW; Dawn Farm Outpatient Therapist. Addiction has been identified as a illness that requires long-term management. Relapse is a process that begins before alcohol/other drug use is resumed and is usually preceded by a pattern of progressive warning signs. Understanding the relapse process assists recovering people to develop an effective plan to identify and prevent relapse. This program will discuss the dynamics of relapse, signs that may forewarn of relapse, how to develop a relapse prevention plan and strategies to handle both everyday and high-risk situations. 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.

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.

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.
