“In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?” will be presented by Dr. Mark A. Weiner, MD; Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine; and Matthew Statman, LMSW, CAADC; University of Michigan Collegiate Recovery Program Manager. 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
