Evidence-Based Relapse Prevention with Dennis C. Daley, PhD
Credit Hours: 0
Outcome studies show that relapse is a common problem among clients treated for a substance use disorder (SUD), including those with a co-occurring psychiatric disorder (COD). Relapse causes frustration among clients in treatment, their families and professional caregivers. This workshop will explore the issue of relapse among individuals with SUDs and CODs. Definitions (lapse, relapse, recurrence), outcomes, types and effects of lapse and relapse and recurrence, and factors contributing to relapse will be reviewed. Clinical models incorporating relapse prevention (RP) strategies, and select models of RPT will be reviewed. RPT is one of the SAMHSA evidenced-based interventions for SUDs. A major emphasis of this workshop will be on discussing specific clinical strategies to reduce relapse risk or intervene early in the lapse or relapse process. The presenter will integrate information from clinical trials, meta-analyses, literature reviews, clinical literature, recovery literature and findings from quality improvement studies conducted in his clinical programs. Content reflects evidence level A according to the levels from the Association for Healthcare Research and Quality. Training includes books (a $42 value): Relapse Prevention Counseling: Strategies to Aid Recovery from Addiction and Reduce Relapse Risk; Relapse Prevention Workbook; Recovery and Relapse Prevention for Co-Occurring Disorders (workbook); and Managing Emotions (workbook). Learning Objectives Identify factors contributing to substance use lapse and relapse and effects of relapse; Review evidenced-based treatments for addiction that incorporate relapse prevention strategies; Describe select models of Relapse Prevention Therapy (RPT); Describe clinical RPT strategies that can incorporated into treatment for any type of substance use disorder. Discuss ways to adapt this knowledge to work with clients who have co-occurring disorders.
