Regardless of specialization and expertise, behavioral and medical healthcare professionals are increasingly expected to effectively screen, refer, and otherwise work with clients experiencing problems stemming from their use of psychoactive substances. This foundational training is designed specifically for professionals wanting an overview of today’s approach to substance use treatment. The workshop will address the historic and contemporary models for addiction, the emerging language of addiction, screening and assessment of substance use disorders, drug classifications, and a host of other components essential when working with clients challenged by their use of psychoactive substances.
