Relapse Prevention: Dawn Farm.

  community member   < less Dawn Farm Education Series

"Relapse Prevention" will be presented by Erik Anderson LLMSW; Dawn Farm Outpatient Therapist. Addiction has been identified as a illness that requires long-term management. Relapse is a process that begins before alcohol/other drug use is resumed and is usually preceded by a pattern of progressive warning signs. Understanding the relapse process assists recovering people to develop an effective plan to identify and prevent relapse. This program will discuss the dynamics of relapse, signs that may forewarn of relapse, how to develop a relapse prevention plan and strategies to handle high-risk situations. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, and related issues. Anyone with a personal or professional interest is welcome.
