Gateway to Recovery
Gateway to Recovery is a free educational series on Addiction and Recovery. It is offered as the first step in helping people find and begin the healing process. If you, or someone you love, are looking for help with overcoming addiction, please join us on the 1st and 2nd Wednesday of each month from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. (except December).
The first Wednesday class focuses on the topic of “What is Addiction?” and addresses use, abuse and dependence of drugs and alcohol, the bio-psycho-social-spiritual aspects of addiction and the stages of change and recovery.
The second Wednesday class focuses on the topic of “Help and Hope for the Family.” This seminar addresses addiction as a family disease and how it impacts each member of the family. We also talk about enabling behavior and codependency and survival roles and rules.
The class is taught by Mary Boone, LCSW, LCDC. Mary has worked in the field of chemical dependency for over 25 years with adolescents, adults and family members in the areas of prevention, intervention and treatment. She has been an adjunct faculty at Austin Community College, presents regularly at the University of Texas School of Social Work and to other groups by invitation. Mary maintains a private practice in Austin, Texas.
