Substance Use Disorders, Suicide, and Recovery: Beyond Shame and Stigma


Shame and stigma are examined as significant predisposing factors to increased suicide risk in individuals currently struggling with or in early recovery from substance use disorders. Tying in principles and methods from his recent books on recovery resilience, Bob Weathers, PhD, CMHRS, explains how nuanced physiological changes that occur in the addictive brain often contribute to increased suicidal ideation. Finally, he incorporates cognitive-behavioral and mindfulness strategies, along with creative process and relational neuroscience, into a more advanced set of resources to aid in sustained and successful recovery while at the same time reducing suicide risk in this vulnerable clinical population.
