Coming to Grips with Death from Addiction

June 4, 2018, Adrian, Michigan – Dealing with the death of a loved one is difficult, but when that death is the result of an addiction, grief can be complicated. Grief is often accompanied by anguish, anger, confusion, embarrassment, shame, intense doubt, and questions about what you “might have done” to save your loved one.

Joan Ebbitt, MSW, spiritual director and clinical social worker, will discuss this complicated grief, drawing on her experience counseling alcoholics, other addicts, and family members who lost them. Her workshop, “Coming to Grips with Death from Addiction,” will be offered from 7:00 p.m. Friday, June 29, 2018, through 5:00 p.m. Saturday, June 30, 2018 at Weber Retreat and Conference Center.

The cost for the program, including meals, is $125 for single occupancy, $80 per person for double occupancy, and $50 for commuters. To register, call 517-266-4000; email webercenter@adriandominicans.org; or visit www.webercenter.org.
