Dawn Farm Education Series

Grief and Loss in Addiction and Recovery  (5656)

03/25/2014 7:30 PM - 03/25/2014 9:00 PM

Grief and Loss in Addiction and Recovery” will be presented by Janice Firn, LMSW; Clinical Social Worker on the Adult Palliative Care Consult Team, University of Michigan Medical Center; and Barb Smith, author of Brent’s World. The culture of addiction
is rife with experiences of grief and loss for the person with addiction and for family and friends. The nature of these experiences combined with the stigma, shame and general lack of understanding of addiction can make grief and loss associated with addiction
exceptionally lonely and difficult to heal from. This program will describe theories of grief and grief recovery, losses that the chemically dependent individual and his/her family experience throughout the addiction and recovery processes, and how recovery
program tools can help individuals cope with grief and loss. It will include a personal account of addiction-related grief, loss and recovery from a mother who lost her son to addiction-related causes. This program is part of the FREE Dawn Farm Education Series.
