Navigating the Abyss: Considerations for Addiction Treatment
Lunch & Learn presentation, sponsored by Recovery Works – Merrillville, of the Pinnacle Treatment Center Network.
Seeking addiction treatment can be a challenging endeavor with numerous options and conflicting information. Addiction not only affects the individual but also has a profound impact on families, friends, co-workers, and communities. Understanding treatment options such as levels of care and how to identify evidence-based treatment can improve one’s ability to find the treatment most likely to result in positive outcomes. This presentation will discuss several evidence-based practices utilized in addiction treatment, including motivational interviewing, cognitive-behavioral strategies, and medication-assisted treatment (MAT).
