Substance Us Disorder Continuum: New Era of Recovery Oriented Systems of Care

The journey to cannabis recovery is far from linear and everyone, from the people looking to begin their journey to those looking to support someone in recovery, struggles with the question of where to start and what it means to be in recovery. And this lack of understanding impacts individuals seeking cannabis recovery as it affects the public and medical community that produce the infrastructures meant to support and help individuals along their path in cannabis recovery. This workshop will delve into each stage of cannabis recovery and help attendees understand the journey one embarks on when seeking treatment and recovery. It takes them through the perspectives of those on this journey and gives them a global perspective on the significance of providing resources that support recovery across all stages of that journey.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Analyzes the recovery continuum through the trantheorectial model, stages of change.
  2. Analyzes internal obstacles and motivators an individual in recovery may face across their journey into and through recovery.
  3. Analyzes external obstacles and motivators an individual in recovery may face across their journey into and through recovery.
  4. Analyzes the way individuals in recovery interact with the resources (medical and otherwise) throughout the stages of change.
