Description

The Substance Use Disorder Prevention, Treatment, and Recovery Industry struggles to move past the false narrative of being a paraprofessional entity, relying only on personal experience to aid those served. As we struggle for acceptance as professionals in the eyes of other behavioral health practitioners, this presentation takes a hard look at some of these issues and recognizes that most are of our own doing. This workshop will ask uncomfortable questions, challenge the status quo, and open up conversations about how those in the field can begin to reckon with these issues.

Target Audience
  • Counselors
  • Addiction Counselors
  • Social Workers
  • Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists

  4. Define post-care outcomes.
