501.T Understanding Addiction and Guiding People to Recovery

Most people who suffer from the disease of addiction never enter professional addiction treatment, but are seen in related health, education, corrections, counseling and other human service agencies. This introductory workshop helps professionals in those fields consider ways to address addiction and recovery issues with their clients. It focuses on ways in which a person is affected by addiction so practitioners can recognize, initiate conversations and support recovery efforts within the parameters of their agency's mission and goals.
•Describe the neurological basis of addiction;
•Explain how addiction manifests in various aspects of the whole person;
•Effectively raise the topic of addiction and recovery with their clients; and
•Describe specific strategies that are appropriate for early stages of change.
