Turning Points: Incorporating Ritual in Addiction Recovery
Description Treating addiction is not merely clinical — there are matters of heart which challenge even the most skilled treatment providers to address. This workshop assists clinicians in shaping patient-centered rituals to effect change and enhance motivation and meaning. Ritual opportunities are identified and various examples are given to illustrate the variety of ways patients, families, groups, and communities mark stages, passages, and recovery milestones. Concerns are identified that relate to patient background and preferences – not every ritual suits every need. Finally, a general outline of ritual form and varied examples of ritual content serve as a foundational “how-to” resource for clinicians and patients who seek to enact movement in their recovery through ritual experiences.
