Dawn Farm Education Series

In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?  (2717)

03/20/2012 7:30 PM - 03/20/2012 9:00 PM

"In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?" will be presented by Mark A. Weiner, MD; Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine; and Matthew Statman, LLMSW, CADC; Dawn Farm therapist and Education Series Coordinator. It's been said that the doctor's
office is a dangerous place for people in recovery from addiction. It's also been said that recovering people are terrible patients. This program will discuss whether these statements are fair and why doctors and other healthcare providers are essential allies
for long term recovery. We will describe in detail how people in recovery from alcohol/other drug addiction can take responsibility for their physical health and how to recruit your health care providers as allies. This program is part of the annual Dawn Farm
Education Series. All programs are free and open to anyone interested. Registration isn't required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by the 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
