Addiction Recovery Supports: Supporting Youth and Young Adults
Youth and young adults in or seeking recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs) often do not have access to recovery support services in their communities. Only 1 in 7 young adults who need treatment for SUDs receive it, and many who do receive treatment return to environments and social networks that put them at risk of using. Youth and young adults, in particular, are more likely to have a SUD than any other age group, making youth-specific recovery support services crucial. Behavioral health providers can strengthen their impact by informing clients about the array of recovery support services available and helping them achieve life in sustained recovery. Join Tim Rabolt, Project Coordinator at Altarum, who will explore how behavioral health providers can engage youth in recovery support services and examine the impact that recovery support services have on health outcomes of youth, helping providers ensure that they have the tools and resources to support youth in recovery.
Emotional Dimensions Of Health Care: A Prescription For Better Health
In a time when life expectancy is going up in many countries, a strange phenomenon is happening in America. Despite better access to health care and new technologies, our life expectancy has gone down as people are sicker more often and dying sooner. As a nation, we spend more and get less than most developed countries. Why? David Woodlock, CEO of the Institute for Community Living, Inc., proposes that we have long neglected the emotional dimensions of health. Adverse childhood experiences and toxic stress across the lifespan have been profoundly underestimated as drivers of chronic disease progression.
Clinical Aspects of SBIRT
One conversation can change a life. In the past year, 26 million people ages 12 and older were diagnosed with a substance use disorder (SUD), yet only 14 percent received treatment. A single conversation, as part of the evidence-based Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT), can move people toward getting help. SBIRT uses tools like Motivational Interviewing to identify those at risk for developing an SUD and help those who already have an SUD. Generally, SBIRT increases an individual’s chance for early intervention and access to treatment. Join us or a webinar highlighting the clinical implementation of SBIRT within primary care settings, including a strong focus on Motivational Interviewing.
