"Alcoholics Anonymous: A Panel Discussion" will be presented on Tuesday October 19, 2010, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by panel of people in recovery from alcoholism/other drug addictions. This program will present a short slide show and discussion of the history of Alcoholics Anonymous followed by a lively moderated panel discussion regarding addiction and alcoholism, personal recovery, and participation in 12 Step programs. The audience will hear personal recovery stories, gain an understanding of how A.A. helps alcoholics recover, and learn to become involved with A.A. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful information that supports chemically dependent people in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for friends and family members in relating to addicts whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each workshop. 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.
