Trauma and Addiction Recovery: How to Work with Couples

12/1/2021
3PM - 5PM Eastern Time
Description: We know that relationships impacted by addiction have divorce rates four times higher than average. Even after beginning recovery, relationships are still at risk. Trauma history is likely to play a key reason. Partners impacted by addiction often have a long history of trauma that may precede their relationship. Added to previous trauma, there is the trauma of addiction and the trauma of recovery, an often overlooked dynamic. This webinar provides tools for addiction professionals to assess and address trauma from a relational perspective by providing three interventions designed to help couples to identify, normalize, and manage triggers. Helping couples manage trauma increases the likelihood of greater relationship stability which correlates with successful long-term recovery.

The Challenges of Polysubstance Use

12/2/2021
3PM Eastern Time
Alcohol is involved in over 20% of opioid-related overdose deaths, and co-occurring alcohol use disorder (AUD) significantly increases the risk of all-cause mortality among opioid use disorder (OUD) patients. Co-morbid opioid and alcohol use can be a potentially dangerous combination that can damage a person’s brain and body. Additionally, treating co-morbid opioid and alcohol use can lead to greater treatment complications compared to the treatment of either substance on its own. This webinar will discuss the use of medications and other integrated care strategies to improve treatment for co-morbid opioid and alcohol use disorders.

Presenter: Sarah Kawasaki, PhD, Director of Addictions Services, Pennsylvania Psychiatric Institute (PPI) Assistant Professor of Psychiatry and Internal Medicine at Penn State Hershey Medical Center.

Walking Alongside: Strategies to Support Parenting in Recovery

12/15/2021
3PM Eastern Time
Description: This webinar invites a new approach to the practice of focusing on recovery before parenting. Healthy and safe parenting within the context of a supportive community is a means of achieving and sustaining recovery. Participants will hear from a mom who will share how motherhood was a catalyst to her recovery. The presenters will describe strategies that substance use treatment and recovery services can adopt to simultaneously increase both recovery and parenting capital through individual and group approaches. The webinar will also address the benefits and how-tos of developing and sustaining a peer recovery workforce cross-trained in parenting support, along with the introduction of a specialized toolkit.
