The effects of a substance use disorder (SUD) are felt by the entire family (Lander, Howsare, & Byrne 2013). Substance use disorders (SUDs) are associated with many areas of a person’s life including medical, psychiatric, psychological, spiritual, economic, social, family, and legal problems. These problems can generate a considerable burden for the affected individuals, their families, and society (Daley, 2013). This workshop will address the effects of SUDs on the family system, including how to engage families in a tele-health setting. In this training we will also address family intervention techniques provided both on-site and virtually for clients with SUDs and their families. Family systems theory and attachment theory are theoretical models that provide a framework for understanding how SUDs affect the family (Birkeland, 2021).  We will explore these theories and how with the utilization of tele-health we can incorporate how to move families through the stages of change in their recovery process.

This is a non-interactive self-study course and was recorded from a live webinar presented by Dr. Martina Moore on March 21, 2022.

Instruction consists of 3 hours of video instruction and a post-test.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the family system model and strategies for engaging families in SUD treatment.

  • Describe educational areas that families can benefit from as it pertains to SUD and how to offer the services in person or on tele-health.  

  • List the steps to a stage family intervention for a loved one suffering from SUD.

  • Describe theoretical techniques to use when working with families with SUD.
