Description

Personal Medicine: Becoming Active Agents in Our Own Recovery will be presented on Tuesday November 28, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jerry Fouchey, BS, MA, SpA, CADC; Dawn Farm Outpatient and Personal Medicine therapist. Personal Medicine is any activity a person adopts because it helps them feel better and increases their sense of “Wellness.” Conditions such as sleep disturbance, psychiatric symptoms including anxiety and depression, and chronic pain can challenge the substance use disorder recovery process. Many of these concerns can be effectively managed, at least in part, through behavioral interventions. Personal Medicine is all about “Skills not Pills;” or the behaviors and habits we develop that help us enjoy life and address concerns we have for various areas of our lives. Personal Medicine is effective in addressing many of the concerns experienced in recovery from substance use disorders. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues. Programs are free and open to anyone interested. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services. For information, please contact 734-485-8725, info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series. Programs are presented at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center auditorium, located at 5305 Elliott Drive in Ypsilanti Michigan.
