Treatment 101: Recovery Today
Wednesday, April 1, 2009
In 2007, an estimated 3.9 million Americans aged 12 or older received treatment for a substance use disorder in the past year. Each year reveals newer and better behavioral, pharmacological, and alternative approaches that advance the addiction treatment field and improve the chances of successful recovery with fewer relapses. This program will look at the current state of addiction treatment, examine recent advancements in the field, consider barriers to treatment and how to overcome them, and discuss strategies for making addiction treatment more accessible by establishing public health framework-based addiction treatment services for both the person suffering from the disease and members of the person's family. (Note: This program is an update to previously aired "Treatment 101" Road to Recovery programs and depicts new and emerging trends within the addiction treatment field.)
