Description

As a mental health clinician, you’re more likely than ever before to have clients who use marijuana and cannabis products.

And while the last decade has seen a cultural shift toward acceptance of marijuana use, cannabis has significant addictive potential that you can’t afford to overlook as a mental health clinician. Cannabis Use Disorder can exacerbate your clients’ mental health problems as they self-medicate to avoid uncomfortable emotions, thoughts, and memories.

Even if addiction isn’t the focus of your practice, you need to be prepared when your client’s use of marijuana and cannabis products goes too far!

Watch this webinar and you’ll get:

  • Tools and tactics to identify Cannabis Use Disorder in your clients
  • Techniques for successfully treating co-occurring disorders with marijuana users
  • Evidence-based approaches to manage cannabis withdrawal symptoms
  • The latest on Medication Assisted Treatment

Ensure you’re confident in your ability to provide your clients’ the best care possible and ready to navigate the ever-changing impacts of drug use on your work!
