Course Description

"Recovery" means: to bring back to a normal position or condition; to find or identify again; to save from loss and restore to usefulness. People become dependent on substance and alcohol for many different reasons. Their stories are all different, however, the emotional and physical effects are similar. The goals in treatment are to identify the source of the deeper issues and work through them to enable recovery.

This training will address the following stages of substance/alcohol usage: use, misuse, abuse, dependence and addiction. Additionally, interventions, counseling approaches and steps to recovery will be addressed.
