Sexuality in Addiction Recovery will be presented byJerry Fouchey, BS, MA, SpA, CADC; Dawn Farm Lifestyle Medicine Therapist and Didactic Group Facilitator. Exploring sexuality in addiction recovery can be a challenging pursuit. This presentation will explore the physical effects of long-term alcohol and drug use on sexuality, changes in sexuality that emerge in early recovery, and some thoughts about the processes that promote a return to health. Also, using recovery literature as the starting point, this will be an opportunity to explore a wide variety of thoughts about the pursuit of intimate relationships in recovery.
