Description:
The acuity of Substance Use Disorders has recently increased and it is imperative that health care professionals are fully informed regarding 12-Step programs–the most widely attended mutual help groups in North America. Inevitably, addiction professionals will treat clients who are in such programs and ideally, they should be able to include the 12-Step model in client care. Connecting with individual narratives has been an important part of the history of these programs and it is crucial to explore the benefits of this treatment modality. Additionally, these programs possess a unique culture, language and lifestyle—and many common misconceptions surround them. Therefore, health care professionals will gain a deeper understanding than what they may have learned from academia about these unique programs in order to effectively integrate the 12-Step and clinical models and to build ongoing rapport with such clients. During this 3-part workshop both challenges and treatment strategies will be discussed with case examples and video segments.
