Description

Historically, various debates can be traced throughout treatment for substance use disorder since the mid-1800s. This workshop will initially focus on two of those debates. The first debate: is addiction (now called substance use disorder) a primary disorder in and of itself or is it simply a symptom of underlying pathology. A second debate: is addiction (substance use disorder) a primary disorder that causes the family to become ill or is it the family illness that causes people to become addicted? These debates continue within the treatment industry and are reflected in the philosophies and services offered. There is no standardization of best practices within the treatment industry as to how or to what extent the family should be involved. This workshop will also examine literature and practices relative to family involvement and basic vocabulary within the industry that might be contributing to the confusion.

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

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. List 2 historical debates that have contributed to confusion within the substance use disorder treatment industry with regards to SUD being a primary disorder and the relation of the family role to SUD.
  2. Explain the opposing views relative to addiction being primary or symptomatic and the opposing views relative to the identified patient’s family.
  3. Analyze ways in which substance use treatment industry vocabulary, such as “treatment”, “recovery”, and “family session” has contributed to the confusion by the patient and the family relative to expectations and outcomes.
  4. Analyze the clinical role of the family in treatment and examination of one barrier to family involvement in SUD services due to how services in the US are financed.
