ALTERNATIVE AND MODERN METHODS OF TREATMENT

Workshops will cover a range of therapies both ancient and modern as well as best practices for appropriating level of care for patients.

Treatment Options often include:

  • Neurofeedback
  • Dialectic Behavior Therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Experiential Therapy
  • Prescription Medications
  • Counseling
  • Treatment
  • and more

This seminar examines the nervous system and how alternative therapies, ancient disciplines and modern medicine are utilized to heal disorders such as anxiety and depression. These nervous system disorders can be exacerbated by addiction and often addiction treatment followed by treatment for mental health disorders is not going to be as effective as integrating treatments to address both the symptoms and the cause.

DUAL DIAGNOSIS AND APPROPRIATE LEVELS OF CARE

Dual diagnosis can go undetected when treating addiction because of the nature of the disease involves the use of substances that can mask the symptoms of a co-occurring mental health disorder. This seminar will also address this topic and will cover best practices for determining an appropriate level of care for a patient.

Levels of Care can include:

  • Detox
  • Inpatient Residential
  • Partial Hospitalization
  • Intensive Outpatient
  • Outpatient
  • Outside mental health providers
  • Ongoing care

Concluding the seminar will be an open panel discuss on everything covered. We look forward to having an ongoing dialogue with everyone. Our goal is to build a stronger community and best practices for addiction and mental health treatment.  We look forward to an ongoing discussion.

This presentation will feature speakers Tamara Roth, Ph.D., Catherine Harris, M.A., ATR-BC, Samuel Macmaster, Ph.D., and Paul Ragan, M.D. The professional board will discuss various therapy methods, which will be followed by an open discussion.
