Supporting Youth and Families in Recovery from Substance Use Disorders

Sponsored by BSAS: 
Yes

The Institute for Health and Recovery (IHR) will be leading a series of regional trainings.  These trainings are open to DPH, Bureau of Substance Addiction Services providers as well as other youth serving agencies and departments. 

This training focuses on ways to engage and support family members caring for youth and young adults with substance use disorders. Topics covered include: understanding parental challenges, reframing addiction as a chronic family disease, and identifying family recovery resources at the local, state, and national levels. The workshop also explores ways to engage and support families where there is multi-generational substance use issues, and where parents/caregivers themselves have not yet committed to recovery, as well as an exploration of ways to work with parents/caregivers who are in active recovery.

We will also review what family recovery resources are available to support parents/caregivers of young people with substance use disorders, as well as resources to support youth living in families with parental substance use issues.

This training is aimed towards anyone working with youth and young adults; prior knowledge is not required.

Objectives:

Upon completion of this program, participants will be able to...

To understand how addiction and recovery can impact the family system.
To identify the various challenges faced by parents/caregivers of youth with substance use disorders.
To identify best practices for engaging and supporting family members caring for youth in recovery, including the CRAFT model.
To understand the roots of multi-generational substance use, and how to help break this cycle of addiction by supporting parents/caregivers in their own recovery.
To identify family recovery resources at the local, state, and national levels, for youth and parents/caregivers.
