"In the Doctor's Office: Recovery Friend or Foe?" was presented on February 22, 2011, by Mark A. Weiner, MD; Internal Medicine and Addiction Medicine; and Jason Schwartz, LMSW; Dawn Farm Clinical Director. It's been said that the doctor's office is a dangerous place for people in recovery from addiction. It's also been said that recovering people are terrible patients. This program will discuss whether these statements are fair and why doctors and other healthcare providers are essential allies for long term recovery. This program describes how recovering people can take responsibility for their physical health and how to recruit their health care providers as allies. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series.  The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of chemical dependency services. For information, please contact Matt Statman, LLMSW, CADC, Education Series Coordinator, at 734-485-8725 or info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarm.org/programs/education-series.
