Personal Medicine: Becoming Active Agents in Our Own Recovery will be presented on Tuesday November 28, 2017, from 7:30 pm to 9:00 pm; by Jerry Fouchey, BS, MA, SpA, CADC; Dawn Farm Outpatient and Personal Medicine therapist. Personal Medicine is any activity a person adopts because it helps them feel better and increases their sense of “Wellness.” Conditions such as sleep disturbance, psychiatric symptoms including anxiety and depression, and chronic pain can challenge the substance use disorder recovery process. Many of these concerns can be effectively managed, at least in part, through behavioral interventions. Personal Medicine is all about “Skills not Pills;” or the behaviors and habits we develop that help us enjoy life and address concerns we have for various areas of our lives. Personal Medicine is effective in addressing many of the concerns experienced in recovery from substance use disorders.
