 BRIGHTON HOSPITAL PROGRAMS IN FEBRUARY TO FOCUS ON SUBSTANCE ABUSE
 AND THE FAMILY
 BRIGHTON, Mich., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- On Feb. 4 and 18, Brighton Hospital will host two free programs on the impact of substance abuse on the family.
 The hospital specializes in treating chemically dependent adults and adolescents. It serves communities throughout Michigan with both residential and outpatient services.
 "Substance Abuse: It's All in the Family," the first session on Tuesday evening, Feb. 4, will focus on how the entire family is affected by the drinking or drug use of a loved one.
 Barbara Judge, one of the hospital's family therapists, will lead the discussion, field questions from the audience, and point out some of the treatment and self-help options that are available to family members.
 Four helpful booklets will be available at this session: "Alcoholism in the Family," "Cocaine and the Family," "When Cocaine Affects Someone You Love," and "Someone You Love Is Addicted." The free publications are also available directly from the hospital's Community Relations Department.
 The topic on Feb. 18 will be "Adult Children of Alcoholics & Recovery: Breaking the Cycle." This program will be of special interest to adults who are in relationships with chemically dependent people or who were raised in chemically dependent homes. The Feb. 18 session is a joint effort of Livingston Counseling and Assessment Services and the Women's Resource Center.
 Both programs will begin at 7 p.m. in the hospital's chapel. The meetings are open to the public, and reservations are not needed.
 Brighton Hospital is located just off exit 151 of the I-96 freeway and just west of Kensington Road.
 For additional information or copies of the free brochures, contact the Community Relations Department at 313-227-1211, Ext. 276 on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
