Understanding the Levels of Addiction
Katherine Turfan, M.A., LPC
Location: Waybridge Training Center
10945 Reed Hartman Hwy, Suite 302
Cincinnati, Ohio 45242
Substance use, substance abuse, and substance addiction are terms that are often used interchangeably but in the clinical context are very different ideas. Within this training the clinician will learn the difference between use, abuse, and addiction. Participants will learn to tell the difference and when to refer for further substance use assessment. Using the ASAMs Levels of Care as a standard to understand when it is appropriate to refer clients to higher or different levels of care can be a subtle and difficult feat. Using our clinical training in a different way, seeing substance use as a mental health issue rather than a separate category makes its approach seamless in its treatment with other disorders and issues. Substance use is often a co-occurring disorder and this training will help you to understand how to approach substances not with fear but with understanding and confidence.
-Participants will gain a deeper understanding of use, abuse and addiction.
-Participants will experience the ASAMs levels of care to help clinicians conduct a multidimensional assessment that explores individual risks and needs, as well as strengths, skills and resources.
-Participants will learn the reasons treatment for drug or alcohol addiction are no longer considered to be separate from treatment for mental health disorders and the recommendations for treatment delivery.
3 CEUs will be offered for Ohio counselors, social workers and marriage and family therapist
