“Addiction and Families” will be presented on Tuesday September 25, 2018; from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Lynn Kleiman Malinoff, Ed.D. Alcohol/other drug addiction is often described as a “family condition.” Each member of the family unit is affected by addiction within the family and often family members have challenges in supporting each other and taking care of their own health and well-being. To survive within a framework of chaos, family members often develop roles and defense mechanisms that help them to cope. This program will provide participants with an overview of ways in which each family member is affected by addiction in the family, roles and behaviors that family members often acquire when living with addiction, and options for family members to obtain help and cope.
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; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from GETTING HELP and GETTING WELL. Programs are free and open to anyone interested in attending, including people with a personal or professional interest – ALL ARE WELCOME! Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is offered for each program. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services.
