UTC 14: Working with Families

Curriculum Icon

This 5-days course provides a comprehensive overview for SUD treatment practitioners working with families who are dealing with substance use disorders.

The discussion covers the impact of SUD on family, its coping mechanisms, recovery issues and interventions that can be implemented with families affected by SUD. This course emphasizes that family’s strengths or support can add to the resource available to increase the chance of recovery. On the other hand, the course discusses that dysfunction in the family can lead to substance use and unaddressed family issues can become barriers for recovery and relapse triggers.
