  • The Girl in the Mirror: Behavioral Health Challenges of Adolescent Girls MD

    03/13/2014 3:00PM - 4:30PM
    Adolescence is a time of transition with unique challenges and pressures for both girls and boys. This webinar series turns our attention on how these challenges and pressures affect adolescent girls. One in four adolescent girls is experiencing a behavioral health problem, but research shows a gap in services, support, and important behavioral health care for adolescent girls—the very tools that help girls successfully transition into adulthood. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is launching Girls Matter! a webinar series addressing adolescent girls’ behavioral health to bridge this gap by providing professionals with information about the critical needs of girls today. This six-part series features professionals from multiple fields and specialties who share a passion for helping teen girls thrive. Continuing Education Hours NAADAC and NBCC CEHs are available through the ATTC Network Coordinating Office.

  • Grief and Loss in Addiction and Recovery MI

    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.

  • Understanding the Role of Peer Recovery Coaches in the Addiction Profession VA

    05/01/2014 3:00PM - 4:30PM
    The addiction profession has a strong foundation of peer involvement. In fact, the earliest addiction professionals were the first peer recovery coaches informed by Alcoholics Anonymous. However, recent shifts within the workforce has led to some discomfort and questions about where the newly arising peer recovery coaches will “fit” into the overall services of the addiction treatment and recovery spectrum. This free webinar will provide a comparison between a modern addiction counselor and peer recovery coach in regards to current roles, scope of practice, career ladder, ethical considerations and supervision needs. The presenter will also discuss different models of peer recovery supports, including details about how they are delivered, by whom, where, and reimbursement. Presented by Phillip Valentine, Executive Director for the Connecticut Community for Addiction Recovery (CCAR)

  • Recovery Reads Loud and Clear PA

    I am promoting my recent self published journal in order to raise enough money to be a bronze sponsor at the 2014 recovery walk. Amongst the many titles she holds, Tonia Renae has most recently become an author who gained her education and expertise through lived experiences. Battling the disease of addiction for almost 20 years has afforded her a wisdom that can only be gained through active participation. Through vivid narration, Tonia pens insight to what it was like suffering with mental health and substance abuse disorders, and how she now lives a life free of the afflictions. Like a child who has found her voice, Tonia’s recovery has given her a freedom that she acknowledges as a gift available for anyone willing to receive. Her spiritual background and trainings have afforded her the ability to reach out through faith and spiritual based counseling. She utilizes this credential with the utmost sincerity as she shares her truth about finding who you are and letting go of who you were taught to be. One could ask what qualifies her to speak so adamantly on these subjects and she would humbly say that her validation lies within a single statement: “Who am I not to."

    We tend to spend much of our lives in an over active, stressful existence. Meditation has been used throughout the ages to connect oneself with the inner self consciousness.

With regular practice, the heart and mind become purified leading to a state of moderation and balance.
