Those who grow up in chemically dependent families have strong survivorship skills. Unfortunately, for too many, they continue to present to the world a false self often becoming our "closeted" depressed, angry and addicted client. This workshop focuses on 1) treatment orientation and priorities, and 2) core clinical issues. Due to the managed care environment, experiential focus will be on homework assignments.

Educational Objectives:

  1. To list key foundation recovery issues for a client.
  2. To recognize treatment orientation to meet many managed care/newer health care expectations.
