â€œHow to Support Recovery and Not Support Addictionâ€ will be presented on Tuesday February 19, 2013; 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Charles F. Gehrke, MD, FACP, FASAM. When all else has failed - what does work when confronted with a loved oneâ€™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 personâ€™s recovery process? These and other questions will be addressed in order to assist participants to find effective methods to successfully support another personâ€™s recovery, avoid enabling another personâ€™s addiction, and maintain their own health and well-being. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful, hopeful, practical information that supports people with alcohol and other drugs addiction 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 family members and friends in relating to people with alcohol and other drug addiction 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 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.
