The Dawn Farm Education Series is a FREE annual education series providing helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery and related topics. The series is designed to reduce the myths, misconceptions, prejudices, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with alcohol/other drug addiction and their families from getting help and getting well, and to help create a community culture that supports recovery.
The series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit organization providing a continuum of addiction treatment and recovery support services. The programs are presented by Dawn Farm staff, physicians, social workers, therapists and other locally and nationally-experts. The presentations are designed to have broad appeal and are geared toward diverse audiences. People with alcohol/other drug use disorders, people in recovery, people interested in recovery, friends and families of people with substance use disorders, students, professionals, and anyone interested in any topic are all welcome!
Programs are presented on Tuesday evenings (usually on the 3rd, 4th and 5th Tuesdays of the month) from September through June, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; usually at the St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center at 5305 Elliott Drive in Ypsilanti, Michigan. (Please see the schedule to confirm the topics, dates, location and other details.) All programs are free and open to anyone interested. 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.
