Tobacco Cessation and Addiction Recovery

“Tobacco Cessation and Addiction Recovery” will be presented on Tuesday May 27, 2014; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Anna Byberg; Program Coordinator, Dawn Farm Spera Recovery Center; and Aaron Suganuma, BSW; Dawn Farm Residential Therapist. 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.

Relapse Prevention

“Relapse Prevention” will be presented on Tuesday June 17, 2014; 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 high-risk situations. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
