The New England ATTC hosted this webinar which focused on how the ADA applies to addiction services in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  Today, 30 years after the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), thousands of people in recovery from addiction are unaware of their civil rights under the law. The ADA insures that people with addiction to alcohol, and in recovery from opioids and other drugs have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. Find out how the New England ADA addresses alcohol and substance use disorders differently. This session also introduces how the ADA applies to addiction in three phases of employment: pre offer, post offer, and employment. These differences are illustrated with scenarios about alcohol, opioids, cocaine and marijuana. Objectives of this webinar are: #1: Understand the ADA’s definition of disability and how it applies to addiction and recovery. #2: Distinguish how the ADA applies to people with addiction to alcohol, and those in recovery from opioids and other drugs. #3: Learn which protections the ADA provides in access to: employment, state and local government services and places of public accommodations. #4: Learn about does and don’t during the three stages of employment (interview and application, post offer and pre-employment, and during employment).

This webinar, featuring speaker Alan Muia, M.Ed. from New Earth Recovery, discussed the unique attributes of recovery residences and how they change the odds in recovery success. Residences vary significantly in terms of level of care, recovery philosophy, and physical environment, but all offer much-needed support, accountability, and connection to people in all stages of recovery. While the COVID-19 crisis has presented complex challenges to recovery residences, people who live within are thriving in caring communities now more than ever. We discussed how providers have responded to the crisis and how residents have been making recovery work. Download slides

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.

Motivational Interviewing awakens one's inner sense of purpose and enthusiasm for the hard work being done during this health care crisis. Objectives: Describe the characteristics of influential people; Become aware of compassionate listening and its impact on suffering; and Discuss the impact of difficult judgement of others

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials.
