“Intervention to Durable Recovery: The Power of Family“ will be presented on Tuesday April 21, 2020; 7:30pm-9:00pm, by Debra Jay and Jeff Jay, best-selling authors, educators and clinicians.(There will also be a book sale/book signing opportunity following the presentation.) Addiction is often described as a “family condition” – but families have often been left out of the recovery equation. Involved, supportive families play a critical role in the recovery process, from initiation through long-term recovery, and families provide an important reservoir of influence and support towards making lasting sobriety a reality. Through extensive work in intervention and family recovery, Debra Jay and Jeff Jay have developed highly effective, detailed Intervention and Structured Family Recovery™ processes that unlock the secrets of lasting sobriety – techniques that help addicted physicians and pilots attain lasting recovery - and make them available to families. The intervention process starts with a concerned family and the Structured Family Recovery™ process ends with a family recovery team that maximizes the potential for a successful outcome for all involved. This presentation will describe how to do an intervention and how to build a recovery team that unites the person with addiction and his/her family in working towards the common goal of sustained recovery. The presentation will provide practical, helpful, hopeful information about intervention and family recovery that will both revolutionize recovery and bring recovery back to its roots. Jeff and Debra Jay are dynamic, highly experienced speakers, whose materials are liberally interwoven with compassion, humor, personal stories and real-life examples. 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.
