Trauma, Chemical Use and Addiction
January 21, 2020
St. Joseph Mercy Hospital Education Center
This event will be presented by Dr. Tana Bridge, PhD, ACSW, LMSW, ACTP; Professor of Social Work, Eastern Michigan University.
Current research highlights a strong relationship between substance use, substance addiction and trauma.
This presentation will review events involved with trauma exposure, trauma specific symptomology, the impact trauma has on the brain and on coping and subsequent substance use, and how to aid individuals struggling with trauma and substance addiction.
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.
