Abstract:

 In recent years harm reduction model in substance abuse treatment has become more widely available and may rival abstinence-based treatment in many communities.  This workshop is intended to provide counselors with a basic understanding of the evidence supporting each model, benefits and limits of the models, and a basic understanding of both approaches.

Learning Objectives:

    1. Participants will develop a basic understanding of the philosophy of, evidence for, and treatment techniques of harm reduction based approach to substance abuse and addiction
    2. Participants will develop a basic understanding of the philosophy of, evidence for, and treatment techniques of abstinence based approach to substance abuse and addiction.
    3. Participants will be better prepared to consider both approaches in recommending community resources and making referrals for patients with substance abuse and addiction diagnoses.
