“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, LMSW, CAADC; Collegiate Recovery Program Manager, University of Michigan Health Services. It's been
said that the doctor’s office can 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 recovering people can take responsibility for their physical health and how to recruit health care providers as allies. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. The
Dawn Farm Education Series is a FREE, annual workshop 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.
