PDS2003: What Does Recovery Look Like?
March 5, 2020, 9:00 am - 4:00 pm$90
The goal of this workshop is to help participants move from an “all or nothing” understanding of recovery to a new paradigm of recovery from different perspectives. By using a person centered approach the presenters will discuss models of recovery including harm reduction and abstinence based models, medication assisted recovery (including the use of Suboxone, Naltrexone, Vivitrol and Methadone), an overview of psychosocial interventions such as motivational interviewing and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and the role of individual factors in recovery. This will include a discussion of dopamine and its role in addiction as well as helping clients learn how to replenish their own dopamine by stimulating personal sources of joy and hope in their lives.
