Being a Parent In Recovery will be presented by Mary Jo Desprez, MA; Director, Wolverine Wellness, University Health Service (UHS,) University of Michigan; and Amber Horwitz, B.S., MSW candidate, Founder Proud Parents of Loss. The entire family unit is profoundly affected by the active addiction of a parent, often through generations. The challenges and healing that go along with recovery of a family member also exert a profound influence in the immediate family and future generations. Parenting is challenging under any circumstances; parents in recovery from substance use disorders face additional challenges in balancing the work of recovery with the responsibilities of parenting, and with healing damages accrued during active addiction. This presentation will discuss the importance of maintaining a strong recovery program while parenting; explore "parenting skills 2.0"; and include a panel. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series.
