Exploring Techniques to Support Long-Term Addiction Recovery for Clients & Families

Thursday, May 23, 2013
12pm - 2pm EST (11 C/10 M/9 P)
Techniques employed during treatment and early stages of recovery are different than those used to support long-term recovery.  This webinar outlines the differences between professionally directed, long-term treatment planning and patient-directed long-term recovery planning and the role of addiction professionals in long-term recovery of their clients and families.  The presenters will also explore recovery-focused reconstruction of identity, character, relationships, and resiliency marked by spiritual self-transcendence, mutual dependence, humility, tolerance, respect and service to others (“recovery as a process of getting out of oneself”) in comparison to techniques of individual, group, and family recovery that focus on enhancing self-knowledge, self-development, self-assertion, self-control, self-confidence, and self-esteem (“treatment as a process of getting into oneself”).
