Whole Person Approaches to Co-occurring Disorders (3 CECs-Addiction and Recovery)
Over eight-million Americans meet criteria for co-occurring substance use and mental health disorders. People with co-occurring disorders run the gamut from the executive with obsessive-compulsive disorder, who drinks a fifth of hard liquor a day to a homeless person who smokes cannabis heavily and has been in and out of psychiatric hospitals with a diagnosis of schizoaffective disorder, to the 35-year-old mother with PTSD and a life-threatening opioid habit. What is clear, is that of all people who seek treatment for substance use or mental health, fifty percent or more have at least one co-occurring problem. Sadly, this often goes unrecognized, unaddressed, or under addressed.
This training presents the complex matrix of co-occurring disorders and how to think through both the assessment process and ways to craft effective and integrated treatment, where the focus is on the person in search of help, their goals, priorities, and aspirations.

Holistic Treatment for Co-occurring Disorders (4 CECs-Addiction an Recovery)
Integrated treatment for dual disorders has been proven to be the most effective type of intervention by using one multidisciplinary team at the same facility to assess and treat all mental health and substance use disorders at the same time.

Utilizing a holistic approach that optimizes the body's ability to heal in conjunction with medication enables the person to move beyond illness and symptoms. This workshop will review treatment principles and interventions and include small group exercises.
