Individuals with addictive diseases suffer from the negative effects of a traumatic experience at a much higher rate than the general population. This workshop will explore the complex and sometimes fatal relationship between post-traumatic stress disorder and addiction. Participants will gain insight into the causes, signs, and symptoms of this debilitating disorder as well as the methods of treatment.
This training is sponsored by the Council on Chemical Abuse and the Department of Drug and Alcohol Programs.
This training is important for all human service and mental health professionals who work with individuals who have experienced traumatic stress in their lives.
For more information about future training opportunities with the Council, please contact the training coordinator by phone at (610) 376-8669, Ext. 101.
