Addiction and Older Adults

Tuesday, Feb 18, 2020 at 7:30PM - 9:00PM

Ypsilanti, MI , United States of America

Addiction and Older Adultswill be presented on Tuesday February 18, 2020; 7:30pm-9:00pm, by Charles E. Coleman LLMSW, Primary Therapist, Dawn Farm Downtown; and Matthew Cremin, LLMSW; Foreclosure Prevention Coordinator, Housing Bureau for Seniors. Older adults are the fastest growing population in the US. Substance addiction affects this population in a unique way. It’s important to consider the intersection of older adults, their medical care providers, and how value systems can play into addiction. The unique nature of how addiction affects older adults, myths and facts, and available local resources will be discussed. This program is part of the Dawn Farm Education Series, a FREE, annual education series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about substance use disorders, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent people with addiction and their families from getting help and getting well.  All programs are free and open to anyone interested.  Registration is not required. 1.5 hours of free C.E. approved by MCBAP (Michigan Certification Board for Addiction Professionals) is provided. A certificate to document attendance is provided on request. The Education Series is organized by Dawn Farm, a non-profit community of programs providing a continuum of services for people with substance use disorders. For information, please contact Dawn Farm at 734-485-8725 or info@dawnfarm.org, or see http://www.dawnfarmeducation.org.

Location: St. Joseph Mercy Michigan Heart and Vascular Institute auditorium, 5325 Elliott Drive, Ypsilanti Michigan 48197.
