“Collegiate Recovery Programs: Supporting Second Chances” will be presented by Mary Jo Desprez, MA, University of Michigan Alcohol and Other Drug Policy and Prevention Administrator. The transition to a college environment can pose significant risk to
a recovering student. Research demonstrates exceptionally high rates of academic success and sustained recovery among students who participate in collegiate recovery programs. This presentation will provide an overview of the national and local efforts to
build recovery support programs on college campuses, and provide information about what parents and students should look for as they explore their options for pursuing a degree of higher education. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education
Series. Anyone with a personal or professional interest is welcome to attend! 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.
