About This Webinar Recording

Treating Addictions.  Why does a person abuse himself with alcohol or other drugs? What drives them to tolerate so many negative consequences? What if the person does not want to quit drinking or drugging? How do we help them?

One of the most important aspects of treatment that is missing from much of addictions treatment is the pursuit of the client’s motivation to use. This seminar will help you to discover / discern the client’s motivation to use alcohol and other drugs, and how to help them correct even the most stubborn irrational motivation. Correcting the underlying cause will eliminate their problematic use of substances.

What You Will Learn

  • How to identify the client’s motivation to use alcohol and other drugs
  • How to identify the client’s actual goals on which to base motivation
  • How to teach the client the cognitive model of substance use and abuse
  • How to correct irrational thoughts that cause substance abusing behavior
  • How to implement termination and relapse prevention methods
