“Co-Occurring Eating Disorders and Addiction: Implications for Recovery” will be presented on Tuesday February 26, 2019; from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Tiffany Schultz, LLMSW; Dawn Farm Outpatient Therapist. Co-occurring Eating Disorders and Substance Use Disorders often converge in several complex ways. We know that addiction to substances is a primary, chronic, and fatal disease if left untreated; research also tells us that when these two disorders co-occur, treating them simultaneously is the best course of action for the individual seeking help, and that long-term recovery from both disorders is possible. However, finding a program able to treat both conditions effectively is challenging. This presentation will explore the ways in which these two very serious conditions intersect and how those intersections impact the course of treatment and recovery for the individual. 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 substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with substance use disorders 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 substance use disorders services.
