January 20, 2016 @ 2:00 PM - 4:00 PMFREE
The University of Michigan Students for Recovery, University of Michigan Collegiate Recovery Program, Dawn Farm and the Michigan Association of Alcoholism and Drug Abuse Counselors (MAADAC) announce a FREE local video premiere of the soon to be released, “Memo to Self: Protecting Sobriety with the Science of Safety” by Dr. Kevin McCauley.
Early sobriety is a precarious time for recovering people. How do you stay sober, exert good judgment and resist seemingly irresistible cravings when the decision-making function of your freshly-healing brain is still impaired? In Memo to Self: Protecting Sobriety with the Science of Safety Dr. Kevin McCauley presents groundbreaking ideas and practices that provide people with addiction access to the same highly effective, proactive processes of recovery management used with great success by health care professionals and pilots. By framing addiction as a safety problem Dr. McCauley unites the science of mishap prevention with the necessities of relapse prevention. This video will provide our community with access to the latest neuroscientific research on addiction, practical tools for sustaining recovery,… and hope.
Dr. Kevin McCauley is a former Navy flight surgeon and co-founder of the Institute for Addiction Study. He is recognized as an engaging lecturer, creative filmmaker, and innovative program designer whose work makes difficult scientific concepts understandable to all and fosters the acceptance of people in recovery as full and valued members of society. Memo to Self: Protecting Sobriety with the Science of Safety is the eagerly anticipated sequel to the award-winning video “Pleasure Unwoven.”
This event is free and open to all – anyone with a personal or professional interest is welcome! Registration is not required. A certificate of attendance can be provided.
