Navigating Grace: Sustaining Recovery through Grief and Loss
October 27, 2015 @ 6:30 PM - 9:00 PMfree
“Navigating Grace: Sustaining Recovery through Grief and Loss” will be presented on Tuesday October 27, 2015, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jeff Jay; best-selling author and counselor. 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. Twelve Step recovery programs address the individual’s spirituality and refer to a “Power greater than oneself” and “God as we understand God” as a source of personal change and support. Participants in Twelve Step recovery programs find their spiritual connection helps them to sustain recovery when challenged with difficult situations. This presentation by best-selling author and clinician Jeff Jay is based on his new book, Navigating Grace. It will describe the spiritual foundations of recovery and discuss how spiritual connection helps recovering people navigate through adversity. The presentation will include inspiring personal testimony to the power of grace in one’s darkest hours and the miraculous moments that change one’s life forever. 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.
