Free Film Screening Event at The Meadows Outpatient Center

On Tuesday, May 10, 2016, The Meadows Outpatient Center in Scottsdale, Arizona will host a free screening of Memo to Self: Protecting Sobriety with the Science of Safety, a documentary film by Dr. Kevin McCauley, co-founder of the Institute for Addiction Study.

Addiction is a potentially fatal illness but it is also eminently recoverable. Certain professionals struggling with substance use disorders enjoy phenomenal success rates getting through early sobriety and into long-term remission of their addiction problems. What do they do? And what can we learn from them?

In this film, Dr. Kevin McCauley re-lives his own precarious early sobriety-negotiating hazards such as hostile prosecutors, treatment programs with divided loyalties, and his own craving brain. Following the advice of the Addiction Medicine experts who helped him, he replicates the sobriety habits and success of recovery pilots and health care professionals. By framing addiction not as a problem of moral choice but as a safety/risk management challenge, Dr. McCauley explains how recovery is neither rare nor random—with the right kind of support, it can even be expected.

This film will prove a valuable tool for therapists, counselors, recovery coaches, and clinicians to introduce audiences to the concepts and practices of Recovery Management, and for people in early recovery and their families learning how to survive the first year of sobriety.
