Event description

Description

This workshop is designed for case managers, program staff, and addiction specialists who have 3 or more years of experience and a strong foundational understanding of substance abuse and case planning. Basic principles of drugs and their effect on the brain will be covered, as well as how drugs of abuse can mimic mental health disorders.

This full day workshop will focus on brain function, common drugs of abuse and dependence and their signs and symptoms.

We plan to have interactive discussions about interventions that are empirically proven to be the most effective. Attendees are encouraged to bring cases to discuss, questions and challenges they have encountered in their work with clients struggling with substance abuse.

An overview of the stages of change and ASAM will also be included in this advanced workshop.

Please note that this is an all day training! Participants are expected to commit to the entire day. Lunch will be served.

A certificate of completion will be provided to all participants that complete the session. The certificate can be used to apply for CEUs for various disciples such as social work, peer certification and more.
