In the Doctor’s Office: Recovery Friend or Foe

October 24, 2017 7:30pm - 9:00pm
In the Doctor’s Office: Recovery Friend or Foe? will be presented by Matthew Statman, LMSW, CAADC; U/M Collegiate Recovery Program Manager; and Mark Weiner, MD, D-FASAM. Addiction is recognized as a chronic illness best treated with long-term monitoring and support. Primary health care settings are natural places for this care to be provided, but health care settings can pose risks to people in recovery. This program will discuss the neurobiology of addiction and its implications, concerns related to medications, and ways for health care providers and recovering people to be allies. Part of the Dawn Farm Education Series. Free, open to all; no registration required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. for Addiction Professionals is provided.
