Description

America is facing an epidemic of substance misuse, but there’s a major obstacle to getting people the help they need: There’s simultaneously a nationwide lack of training in addiction treatment for professionals as well as a massive need for people with this training. These problems are severe; many future mental health providers are graduating without ever completing a single course in substance abuse treatment.

But substance abuse is very much part of the real world of mental health treatment – even if that’s not why your clients came into your office. Be prepared to recognize substance use and get your clients the help they need.

Watch Paul Brasler, LCSW in this intensive two-day recording and he’ll walk you through numerous proven strategies and interventions that you need to effectively recognize and treat substance use disorders.

Watch this program, and through a combination of the latest addiction research and clear examples of treatment, you’ll learn:

  • How to differentiate between casual misuse and addiction
  • Who you should treat and when you should refer out
  • Techniques to improve client engagement and treatment compliance
  • How to modify your interventions for use with special clinical populations, including veterans

Best of all, this training meets the educational requirements when applying to become a Certified Addictions-Informed Professional (CAIMHP) through Evergreen Certifications. Certification lets colleagues, employers, and clients know that you’ve invested the extra time and effort necessary to understand the complexities of treating addictions in clients. Professional standards apply. Visit www.evergreencertifications.com/caimhp for to get started!
