About this website

This website was started in response to requests from people wanting information and CE credit for Dawn Farm education series workshops without having to attend the physical event.

All of the course content is available for free at dawnfarm.org and Vimeo. Registration and payment is only necessary if you are seeking CEUs.

We prefer people attend the actual event so we can meet them, answer their questions and they can get the full experience, but many of the people expressing interest are hundreds of miles away. So…we’ve launched this website to fill the gap.

All revenue from this website will be used to support the Dawn Farm Education Series and Teens Using Drugs.

About Dawn Farm

100_3001-e1342272828609-300x166Since 1973, Dawn Farm has met community needs with compassion, creativity and hope. From our humble roots in 1973 to the current array of community programs, Dawn Farm’s plainspoken ideal has always been the same—to be the place where addicts and alcoholics could go for help.

Dawn Farm is a program with unique history, point of view and voice. We know that recovery is possible for even the most troubled addicts–addiction is a treatable illness. We also know that media coverage, research bias, and stigma often obscure this and influence continuing education for addiction professionals.

About the Dawn Farm Education Series

ed-series-chalkboard-195x300The Dawn Farm Education Series is a FREE, annual workshop series developed to provide accurate, helpful, hopeful, practical, current information about chemical dependency, recovery, family and related issues; and to dispel the myths, misinformation, secrecy, shame and stigma that prevent chemically dependent individuals and their families from getting help and getting well. All Education Series programs are free, and all are open to anyone interested in attending.

All programs are free. Anyone with a personal or professional interest in the topic is welcome! The Education Series is designed to help people with alcoholism or other drug addictions to achieve, maintain and strengthen their recovery; assist family members and friends to understand and support recovery in people they care about as well as maintain their own health and well-being; aid professionals and students in various disciplines to work effectively with people with addictions and their families and support their recovery process; and contribute to a community culture supportive of recovery.
