Cultural Considerations in Addiction Treatment

Overview:

With the large number of immigrants in this country it is imperative that providers examine the challenges faced by clients and staff from different cultures who work together. The goal of this training is to help providers be more culturally competent. This interactive and dynamic presentation will first challenge participants to acknowledge the severity and impact that cultural differences may have on how clients respond to providers and the entire treatment experience.  We will discuss how being a member of a minority group might influence a person’s cultural, social, legal, psychological, educational and Spiritual development. We will explore how addiction may effect different minority groups and the additional toll its taken on that culture. Participants will have an opportunity to consider their own personal experiences with racism and be able to identify their own bias and prejudices.

We will examine how the addiction treatment community has responded to minority clients and offer some practical solutions as well as specific counseling strategies that will improve treatment outcomes and client retention rates. We will approach these issues in solution oriented proactive manner that seeks to empower and encourage the clients and participants.

Day Two 25, July 2019

Understanding and Helping the Chronic Relapser

Overview:

Addicts and alcoholics are prone to relapse. However there are some addicted people who are able to get clean and sober but unfortunately are unalbe to stay clean and sober. For many of them life becomes a vicious and discouraging cycle of getting clean and relapsing, over and over again. This training will help the participants to understand and help the chronic relapser. Treatment programs frequently fail to identify the relapse warning signs and high-risk situations that threaten the clients Recovery. Actually many addicts don’t fully know their own triggers until they are released from treatment and placed back into their own daily routines. It’s easier to learn the “tools of Recovery” than it is to practice them. Most addicts leave treatment full of optimism and insight, with big plans and lofty goals only to discover that after a couple of months their Recovery has taken a “back seat” to their daily grind. They discover that problems in the workplace, family, relationships, finances, and social life become time consuming, overwhelming and take precedent over their Recovery. Addicts tend to get too busy to attend support groups and when they do attend they don’t get involved. They procrastinate and become spectators rather than participators in their own  Recovery Process.

The first few months following treatment are critical to the maintenance of a life long Recovery program.  A relapse prevention plan works much like the maintenance schedule of a new car, after a few months you bring the car in for a check-up, verify that all systems are working as expected, fine tune those that aren’t and look for problems that previously hadn’t been identified.

A relapse prevention plan gives clients an opportunity to have their Recovery programs evaluated, they will identify specific relapse warning signs, develop warning sign management strategies and develop a revised Recovery plan. They will identify what’s working and what’s not working, what do they need to do more of and what they need to do less of.

This presentation will give the clinical skills you need to inspire hope and help the chronic relapser to maintain long term recovery, and to develop a Recovery Plan that helps avoid repetetive relapses.

Participant Objectives:

At the conclusion of the training participants will be able to:

  • Develop a individualized relapse prevention plan.
  • Assist clients in creating a Relapse Warning Sign List.
  • Develop strategies for stopping the pattern of repetitive relapses.
  • Evaluate and measure the strenghts and weaknesses of a clients Recovery Plan.
  • Describe how a client can transition from stable recovery to a return to substance use.
