Listening Sessions for family members of people who use substances

Listening Sessions for Family Members with a loved one who uses stimulants and/or other substances

Sessions will be held for 1.5 hours in New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Texas. Time and dates vary. Listening sessions will be offered in both Spanish and English. See the schedule below. 

The SSW ATTC received a request from providers in Oklahoma to develop resources for family members with a loved one who uses stimulants and/or other substances. In response the SSW ATTC has partnered with the African American Behavioral Health Center of Excellence and the National Hispanic and Latino ATTC to conduct a series of listening sessions with family members in Oklahoma, New Mexico and Texas.

The goals of the listening sessions include:

  • gathering information about family membersā€™ experiences supporting their loved one
  • compiling a list of questions these family members have about supporting their loved one
  • understanding more about the supports family members are receiving
  • identifying any unmet needs family members have. 

Findings from the listening session will be used to inform the development and dissemination of a suite of culturally adaptable resources for both family members and providers.

The schedule for sessions is as follows:
