Tuesday, April 3 – The Disease of Addiction: A Complex Brain Disease Better Understood and Biological Considerations for Early Recovery
In modern times the disease of addiction remains widely misunderstood by both society and even our helping professionals. The goal of this presentation is to help you better understand the causes and changes in brain structure in an individual struggling with chemical use issues, how those changes keep the afflicted person in the cycle of addiction, and how those changes and the subsequent healing process will challenge the person’s ability to treat their disease as well as implement changes in their life.
Tuesday, May 1 – This Too Can Last
Steps Ten, Eleven and Twelve are often referred to as the maintenance steps. They enable us to maintain our spiritual condition, which in turn, will grant us a reprieve for today from drinking and using. While carrying the message to others, being of service and practicing the principles of the Twelve Steps of our program of recovery is our lifeline to abstinence and recovery. We cannot keep it unless we give it away. Incorporating these three steps into our daily practices can and will assure us that our recovery remains alive and vibrant.
