The focus of this workshop will be to provide clinicians with a general understanding of the disease of addiction; the process of how to assess and diagnose clients using the DSM 5 who present with co-occurring disorders, i.e., substance abuse and mental health. Finally, we will discuss various treatment modalities that are evidence-based in their effectiveness of the treatment of substance abuse and addiction. This workshop will incorporate lecture along with a role play to provide education and model an intake assessment.
This workshop will be led by Jacqueline (Jackie) Juarez, LCSW, and Stephen Knight, LCDC.
Registration Fee is $50 and eligible for 3 CEUs for LMSW, LCSW, LPC, LMFT, LCDC.
