Recovery centers and recovery programs are dominated by 12-Step programs. Substance Use Disorder Counselors and General Practitioners recommend attending such programs or encounter clients who participate in such fellowships. This workshop aims to explain both the language of 12-Step work from the point of view of those participating and identify potential conflicts between 12-Step programs and treatment modalities. Familiarity with concepts will aid therapists in building therapeutic relationships and understanding potential conflicts will help practitioners build treatment plans which address inconsistencies.

General Admission: $60**
Class size is limited to 45.
