Engaging Family Members Across the Substance Use Disorder Care Continuum

Tuesday, April 2, 2019 (1:00 – 2:30 pm)
The City of Lowell Senior Center, 276 Broadway Street, Lowell, MA 01854

Conversations – April 2019 – Training

 

The Secret Sauce:
Engaging Family Members Across the Substance Use Disorder Care Continuum

 Addiction impacts the whole family. The role of the family in the course of a loved one’s substance use disorder is frequently overlooked and misunderstood. Family members experience isolation, stigma and shame; our current treatment system frequently fails to engage families to improve their own health and the health of their loved one with a substance use disorder. This training seeks to explore and clarify the impact of addiction on the family unit and family members and loved ones as power catalysts for change. Topic areas to be addressed include:

 Importance of engaging family members and loved ones in prevention and treatment of substance use disorder

Stress, the stages of change, and SUD-impacted family systems

Reciprocal relationship between family and individual health

Health risks of family members living with a loved one’s SUD – chronic health and psychiatric conditions

Strategies for engaging and supporting family members of persons living with SUD

Resiliency of families and families as motivators for change

Presenting will be Alicia S. Ventura, MPH, Director of Special Projects and Research at Office Based Addiction Treatment at Boston Medical Center. Alicia has published in numerous peer-reviewed journals on topics including: reproductive health, HIV, consequences of alcohol and other drug use, and recently published a commentary selected as Editor’s Choice in the Journal of Addiction Medicine, “To Improve Substance Use Disorder Prevention, Treatment and Recovery: Engage the Family.”

Social Work, Nursing, LADC, EMS, and CDP (Certified Dementia Practitioner) continuing educational credits are being pursued.

Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) continuing education credits approved by National Council of Certified Dementia Practitioners.
