Road to Recovery

Friday, May 29 - Sunday, May 31

A retreat that will examine the disease of addiction to alcohol, drugs, and other behaviors and its concurrent effects on the human brain. Addiction is multi-faceted disease involving the body, mind and spirit. Modern neuroscience has clearly demonstrated the biological/biochemical underpinning of both addition and recovery. Together we explore the process using the 12 Steps and mindful practices. Yoga sessions will also be available. Bring your yoga mat.

Facilitators: Rose Foley, LMSW,  CASAC;  Diana  Dow-Edwards, PhD. in Neuroscience with over 30 years of  research experience on the neurobiology of addiction and Jane Colgan, MA, AC,  retired Health Educator and certified yoga instructor.
