Description
Individuals often avoid seeking treatment despite the catastrophic consequences of untreated mental health and substance use disorders. The general feeling is that there is an easier way to get better without entering a treatment facility. In this presentation, participants will gain valuable insight into the addictive brain and general patterns of active addiction and work towards understanding how one makes decisions while actively using psychoactive substances or experiencing an active mental health crisis. Participants will learn the language of mental health and addiction and learn how to speak to individuals who are actively using it effectively. With these skills, participants will understand how to move active users into a safe setting so they can heal.

Drew Horowitz, MA, LADC, LPCC, CIP

Drew Horowitz brings vast expertise in working with and overseeing clinical teams. He gained a wealth of knowledge through his recovery, extensive training, and a master’s level education from the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation’s Graduate School of Addiction Studies. Drew did his undergraduate degree at Hofstra University in NY, where he focused on psychology and human development. Drew also became a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor capable of diagnosing and providing mental health treatment. Within his decade-plus of experience in the field, he has worked with many populations, providing consultation, intervention, coaching, and counseling. Drew is most well-known for his mastery in conducting clinical interventions. Over the past several years, Drew has gained significant experience traveling the country and internationally to assist individuals accessing treatment. The intervention process, according to Drew, must be done with compassion, empathy, and a strong understanding of the pain individuals are experiencing while active in addiction. A background and training in motivational interviewing, cognitive behavioral therapy, and client-centered care shaped Drew’s intervention and coaching style.
