Engaging in addictions treatment with professionals has great rewards. Depending on the level of treatment, it can be both an easy exercise and a very trying one also. Nonetheless, one has the opportunity to observe growth and eventually the readiness of the client to leave treatment and find peace, strength, hope, honesty and confirmation of their sobriety in the community. This workshop will discuss the rewards and challenges of helping addicted professionals learn how to achieve and maintain sobriety.
Participants in this workshop will:
Learn how professionals can benefit from specialized treatment to address their specific issues, especially in ongoing follow-up care.
Learn about the licensure issues facing addicted professionals whose practices may be in jeopardy, examining the respective policies of various licensing boards.
Understand the clinical issues facing professionals that arise during treatment.
