From Fear to Faith
“From Fear to Faith” will be presented on Tuesday May 28, 2013; by James Balmer, Dawn Farm President; and Jason Schwartz, LMSW, CAADC; Clinical Director, Dawn Farm. In celebration of Dawn Farm’s 40th Anniversary the Farm invites the community to a fun and informative evening beginning with a reception from 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm with food, beverages and the opportunity to socialize with Dawn Farm staff, alumni, families, clients and supporters. The reception will be followed by the final 2012 - 2013 Education Series program, presented from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm. “From Fear to Faith” will describe the evolution of the treatment field over the past forty years, discuss what can be learned from Dawn Farm's successes and failures, illustrate how mission-driven choices have allowed Dawn Farm to survive and thrive, and explain the power of rejecting fear-based program management. Dawn Farm was founded in 1973 by two men with little more than a vision, using the principles of Alcoholics Anonymous, some ideas borrowed from a residential program in Quebec, and a rented farm house in Ypsilanti. From the modest farm house to the continuum of programs that we operate today, Dawn Farm has continued to address the essential needs of the community with creative, community-based solutions and to be a place of help and hope for hundreds of addicts every day. Dawn Farm’s success has been made possible by staying true to our core values and the unwaveringly generous support provided by the community around us. This evening is an opportunity to say thank you to those who have supported us throughout the years and share with you what we’ve learned along the way. This program is part of the FREE, annual Dawn Farm Education Series. Our presentations offer helpful, hopeful, practical information that supports people with alcohol and other drugs addiction in achieving, maintaining, and strengthening their recoveries. The series educates family members on issues relating to addiction and its effect on the family, and offers information that will be useful for family members and friends in relating to people with alcohol and other drug addiction whether they are actively using or in recovery. Professionals and students will also benefit from this pertinent information. 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 offered for each program. 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 chemical dependency services.
