We’re excited to bring you a great free CEU virtual training this month. Join Green Hill Clinical Director Matt O’Connor and Family First Adolescent Services Director of Clinical Development Mike Giresi as they explore how shame can have a profound impact on addiction, mental health, and the development of adolescents and young adults.
When you visualize someone suffering from addiction, what kind of person do you imagine? Many people’s image of addiction includes only the rock bottom consequences of the disease. The misguided notion that only “low bottom” cases require help often gets in the way of much needed recovery. We hope to dispel some misconceptions out there that may wrongly lead young people in active substance abuse to believe their problems are not severe enough to seek help.
The main topic for this month’s Parent Support group is boundaries. Having clear boundaries with a young adult in active addiction and/or early recovery provides a framework for expectations on both sides.
