Recovery Through Connection: Shifting Paradigms in the Treatment of Substance Use Disorders and Addictive Behaviors
August 19, 2022 | 1:00 to 4:00 pm Central | Live On-line
The medical model approach to treating addictions has been utilized since Substance Use Disorders were identified as Disease processes and therefore require medical approaches and interventions.
This program aims to offer an alternative to our traditional approaches to treating addictions and will cover many new approaches and well-known but less utilized interventions. There is a need to individualize treatment for each Substance Use Disorder and addictive behavior and not rely on just the traditional approaches.
This program does not aim to minimize or discount the benefits of traditional approaches but will offer a shift in paradigms as to how we see addictions and explore new approaches and models.
The value of connection and social recovery will be emphasized, and alternative approaches and methods will be featured. Many in recovery continue to feel disconnected and want more than traditional approaches have offered.
This program will equip the clinician treating Substance Use Disorders and addictive behaviors with new approaches and tools and techniques that will insure better outcomes and prognosis for long term recovery.
After completing this program, social workers, program administrators, and other participants will be able to:

He is currently on the Social work ethics Committee for the Missouri National Association of Social Workers and has provided workshops to Missouri NASW chapter for several years and is a much sought-after speaker.
Mr. Darvell’s number one goal of every workshop and presentation is that the attendee can put into practice what was learned in the workshop quickly and effectively in the work they do with their clients.
