When all else has failed - what does work when confronted with a loved one’s addiction? What does not work? What can others do to help? What does not help? What role does an individual play in supporting another person’s recovery process? These and other questions will be addressed in order to assist participants to find effective methods to successfully support another person’s recovery, avoid enabling another person’s addiction, and maintain their own health and well-being.
"How to Support Recovery and Not Support Addiction" will be presented on Tuesday, May 15, 2012, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Dr. Charles F. Gehrke, MD, FACP, FASAM. This program is part of the annual Dawn Farm Education Series. All programs in the Education Series are FREE and open to anyone interested in attending – no registration is required. All programs will be presented from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center auditorium, at 5305 Elliott Drive in Ypsilanti.
