Spirituality in Recovery: The Many Paths to Spiritual Fitness will be presented on Tuesday May 29, 2018, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jerry Fouchey, BS, MA, SpA, CADC; Dawn Farm Outpatient and Personal Medicine therapist. Spirituality is considered a central component of recovery in Twelve Step mutual aid groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, and these groups are common paths to recovery for many people with substance use disorders. ”Spiritual” is not the same as “religious,” and Twelve Step recovery groups are inclusive of people of any and of no religious belief. Twelve Step literature points out that recovering people have "tread innumerable paths" in employing spirituality in recovery. This presentation will encourage participants to clarify a personal understanding of spirituality and understand the role that spirituality can play in recovery. 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.
