The Link between Trauma and Substance Abuse: Causes, Signs, and Treatment Indications

ID: 5041

This workshop is designed to educate both the substance abuse counselor and mental health professional on the prevalence of substance abuse and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, and importance of cross education for themselves to ensure the best outcomes for their client. The workshop begins with an overview of the long history of specific populations who are most often diagnosed with both disorders and the poor treatment outcomes when the attempt is made to treat each separately and not concurrently. The chemical reactions created by both traumatic stress and substance abuse are discussed and the research linking them. Finally, some successful treatment models are discussed with experiential exercises participants can use in early stages and later treatment with this population.
