WEBINAR: How the Trauma Informed Approach can Help Treat Substance Use Disorder
March 28 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
People who experience trauma- especially Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs)-are at an elevated risk for substance use disorders, mental illness, and physical disorders.
Trauma-informed care (TIC) is an evidence-based approach to deliver healthcare in a way that recognizes and responds to the long-term health effects of the experience of trauma. In the 2014 Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) 57, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) addressed trauma-related prevention, screening, assessment, intervention, and treatment issues and strategies, providing a framework for organizations that wanted to take a trauma informed approach.
