September events in Dawn Farm’s free community education series
The Dawn Farm Education Series provides free community education designed to replace the myths and misinformation surrounding substance use disorders with practical, factual information – and hope. The 2019 – 2020 Dawn Farm Education Series will kick-off on September 17, 2019 and continue through June 2020 – marking Dawn Farm’s TWENTY-NINTH year of free community education. We’d like to ask your help to inform your followers about upcoming Education Series programs.
The following programs will be presented in September 2019:
“Does Addiction Treatment Work?” will be presented on Tuesday September 17, 2019; 7:30pm-9:00pm, by Dr Carl Christensen, MD, PhD, D-FASAM. Diverse sources claim to define research-supported definitive truths about the root causes of addiction and efficacy of treatment modalities; however, conclusions are conflicting and have been subject to divergent interpretations. Feel confused? Dr. Christensen will review the recent criticisms of treatment for addiction including Twelve Step, residential, and medication assisted therapy, the scientific studies that do and do not support their use and other controversial issues.
“Addiction and Families“ will be presented on Tuesday September 24, 2019; 7:30pm-9:00pm, by Dr. Lynn Kleiman Malinoff, Ed.D. Alcohol/other drug addiction is often described as a “family condition.” This program will describe 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 to cope with addiction in the family.
