Intervention to Durable Recovery: The Power of Family” will
March 29 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PM| free
“Intervention to Durable Recovery: The Power of Family” will be presented on Tuesday March 29, 2016, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Debra Jay and Jeff Jay; best-selling authors and counselors. 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, and a book signing opportunity following the presentation. Addiction is often described as a “family disease” – but up until now, families have been mostly left out of the recovery equation. Involved, supportive families play a critical role in the recovery process, from initiation through long-term recovery. Through extensive work in intervention and family recovery, Debra Jay has developed highly effective, detailed Intervention and Structured Family Recovery™ processes that unlock the secrets of lasting sobriety – techniques that help addicted physicians attain lasting recovery – and make them available to families. The intervention process starts with a concerned family and the Structured Family Recovery™ process ends with a family recovery team that maximizes the potential for a successful outcome for all involved. This presentation will describe how to do an intervention and how to build a recovery team. The presentation will provide practical, helpful, hopeful information about intervention and family recovery that will both revolutionize recovery and bring recovery back to its roots. Jeff and Debra Jay are dynamic, highly experienced speakers whose materials are liberally interwoven with compassion, humor, personal stories and real-life descriptions. 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.
