Trauma Integrated Addiction Treatment

The Substance Use and Mental Health Leadership Council of Rhode Island - New England Region 1: Trauma Integrated Addiction Treatment

9:00am - October 4, 2021
New England ATTC
Registration Deadline:

An abundance of research has pointed to poor treatment outcomes for people with co-occurring trauma and addiction.  Traditional addiction treatment has ignored the significant impact of trauma on personal recovery and subsequently people have continued to struggle as a result.  With recent advances in understanding the impact of trauma, it is time for a change in the approach taken toward trauma and addiction.  This interactive and experiential presentation offers an overview of the impact of trauma on the recovery process from a social, biological, psychological, and spiritual perspective and will provide clinicians with skills to work with people affected by trauma throughout their recovery, as well as, understanding the conceptual framework of trauma-informed practice.
