Anne Balboni, Psy.D. Tragic events affect the productivity and psychological well-being of those impacted by workplace violence, sudden death, or unexpected traumatic events. The need for small and large group crisis intervention is often a challenge for a company and for those required to assist in these types of events. Designed to present the core elements of a comprehensive, systematic, and multi-component crisis intervention curriculum, this course will prepare participants to understand a wide range of crisis intervention services. Fundamentals of Critical Incident Stress Management are outlined and participants will leave with the knowledge and tools to provide several groups crisis interventions. Specifically, Demobilizations, Crisis Management Briefings (CMB s), Defusings, and the Critical Incident Stress Debriefing are discussed. Practice opportunities and discussions of selection of specific interventions are explored using a strategically selected methodology. This course is designed for anyone in the fields of Business and Industry, Crisis Intervention, Disaster Response, Traumatic Stress, Education, Employee Assistance, Healthcare, or Mental Health fields.

After utilizing homeopathy for 2 ½ years in 2 Boston treatment centers, Women s Circle and Griffin House, data indicates that those treated homeopathically were twice as likely to complete the program or transfer appropriately to another program rather than relapse, disappear, or abruptly stop treatment. #103 Person-Centered & Recovery-Oriented Practice: Ethical Foundations for Counselors & Supervisors Donald Scherling, Psy.D., LADC, CCS Difficult social and economic times concurrently escalate stress/distress and shrink resources and services. In the face of overwhelming need and limited resources, helpers and programs face enormous clinical challenges and ethical dilemmas. This interactive workshop will focus on person-centered and recovery oriented treatment as a foundation to guide helpers to integrate collaborative ethical practices in all aspects of their work. Person-centered and recoveryoriented practice engages counselors and supervisors to go beyond codes of ethics to create healing partnerships that inspire clinical excellence, client satisfaction, and ethical practice. Among the different codes to be discussed are NASW, CRCC, NAADAC, and MFT. 2

Ryzewicz, Makes SAP M.D., Treatment FACP, FASAM Work? & Steven Fischel, M.D., Ph.D. Is there something that can be called SAP Treatment? There is no single substance abuse treatment Alcohol withdrawal is extremely common in the general hospital. It is associated with many complications methodology prescribed by DOT regulations (CFR 49 Part 40). Treatment choice is the province of the SAP, due to the medical and surgical co-morbidities that exist within this patient population. There are also unique a qualified independent professional. Nevertheless, employees in the SAP process, regardless of treatment challenges in treating alcohol withdrawal in this setting. In this workshop, we will review our own experience at recommendations, tend to complete treatment at remarkably high rates. This workshop maintains that there is a large tertiary care general hospital. Interactive case presentations will be used to demonstrate some of the an identifiable overarching SAP treatment regimen and we will investigate its structure and underlying theory. successes and pitfalls that can occur while treating these patients, allowing for a collegial exchange of ideas about this very common and challenging problem. 10:00 10:30 a.m....morning Break Lobby 12:00 noon evaluation and Closing Remarks Hosted by C4 Recovery Solutions Program Committee 12:00 12:00 noon 1:30...Exhibits p.m....lunch on Close your own 2:00 5:00 p.m....exhibitor Set-Up Exhibit Hall 3:00 3:30 p.m....afternoon Break POST-SYMPOSIUM Hosted by A Better Tomorrow 12:00 noon 1:00 p.m buffet Lunch Post-Symposium Registrants ONLY Hosted by C4 Recovery Solutions M A I N S Y M P O S I U M 1:00 p.m. 5:00 p.m....post-symposium Workshops #500 The Impact of the Mood Disorders on Addiction and Recommended Interventions 6:30 p.m...welcome and Opening Remarks Bass River Naelys Diaz, Ph.D., E.

Often a source of etiological confusion, clinicians often find themselves thinking too linearly thinking that clients have only one of these disorders but not accounting for the comorbidity of disorders. These disorders often lead to a life of substance abuse, self-medication, bullying, incarceration, and tragedy. Systems are often overloaded and unable to provide the level of intervention necessary. These individuals often are labeled as bad people instead of sick people. This seminar offers practical how to information and interventions. 8:30 10:00 a.m....early Morning Workshops #201 Treatment for Minority Youth: a Comparative Between an Evidence Based Program and a Community Grounded Service. Mr. Toleran, M.S., & Ms. Yi, Ph.D. Intern Supported by Asian Community Mental Health Services Two treatment approaches are discussed based on the experiences of a mental health services agency. One is based on the Cannabis Youth Treatment and adapted into Assertive Community Reinforcement Treatment (ACRA/ACC) and the other is a community grounded 16-session brief treatment model. #202 Fully Living with Chronic Pain: A Mindfulness-Based Approach James S. Flowers, Ph.D. Supported by Sierra Tucson Pain and illness are inherently unpleasant, and without doubt, many of us develop unhelpful habits in reaction such as fear, avoidance, catastrophizing, aversion, and tension. This just adds to our overall experience of suffering. Mindfulness can help us break this cycle of reactivity and regain a sense of initiative, confidence, and control. Paradoxically, by learning to live with our pain, we can broaden our perspective and experience a greatly improved quality of life. #203 The Fingerprint of Addiction: Turning the Pages to Treatment Marc Bell, Ken Freedman, M.D., M.S., M.B.A., FACP, FASAM, & Hugh McCray, LADC-II Supported by Lemuel Shattuck Hospital The purpose of this workshop is to present the profile of an individual who engages in a drug-laden lifestyle and experiences a complex set of sequelae. Discussion will encompass how clinicians and supportive personnel can assist a person s return to wellness by facilitating abstinence and promoting recovery from problematic use of substances. Using the metaphor of a book representing a person s life, each page will be examined and the individuality of how the addictive disorder manifests itself will be the fingerprint. The participants are given methodologies to utilize in working with individuals whose treatment addresses medical problems, co-existing substance dependence, and possible psychiatric issues. #204 What Everyone Needs to Know When Working with GLBT Clients Joe Amico, M.Div., CAS, LISAC, & Julie M. Praus, M.D. Supported by Alternatives, Inc. and Brattleboro Retreat Everyone works with sexual minorities: gay men, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender clients. This workshop will cover all the basics needed to understand the specific needs of GLBT clients and how to make your office more GLBT friendly. 10:00 10:45 a.m....morning Break Exhibit Hall Hosted by Marworth 10:45 a.m. 12:15 p.m....late Morning Workshops #210 Ethical Complications of Organ Transplantation in Patients with Alcohol and Drug Abuse/Dependence Ted R. Laska, LADC Supported by The Mayo Clinic Today, more and more patients are coming to treatment with serious medical problems, including the need for organ transplantation. Many believe that Hepatitis C is at epidemic proportions. How are these patients different from others? How do we go about treating the co-occurring addiction, health problem, and most often, mental health concerns? How does the chemical dependency professional fit into the complex decision-making process of who is chosen for transplantation and who is denied? These questions, as well as their ethical implications regarding the patients, their relatives, the donor, and the professionals involved, will be addressed. 4

5 #211 Engaging and Prescribing to Clients Who Do Not Want to Change Mark D. Green, M.D. Supported by Westbridge It is especially difficult for the young, with chronic pain, or those with co-occurring psychiatric disorders to stop using drugs. In the early stages of change they have poor retention, outcomes, and acceptance of medications. Rather than labeling them as resistant, non-compliant, or waiting to hit a rock bottom, therapists must collaborate with clients and support movement toward valued goals their Recovery even while they continue to use drugs. This can challenge training, personal experience, and morals. Harm Reduction has been especially contentious, the therapist must be willing and able to employ a broad range of interventions to fit the patient, including safe injecting practices, moderation management, and the use of medications with addictive potential. This presentation will discuss Recovery and Harm Reduction: philosophy, efficacy, and application to treatment. #212 Influence of Attachment Organization on Addiction & Recovery Donna Markus, Ph.D. Supported by Promises Treatment Centers Attachment theory has emerged as a compelling framework with which to understand personality development and psychological functioning. Attachment organization influences affect management strategies as well as one s perception of self and others and guides behavior accordingly. Viewing addiction from an attachment theory perspective enables clinicians and other helping professionals to assist patients in engaging in treatment and utilizing support systems. Q&A and discussion will follow PowerPoint presentation. #213 Effective Practices: Alternative to Discipline Programs for Healthcare Professionals with Drug Abuse and Psychiatric Disorders Valerie D. Iyawe, RN, M.B.A., Tim McCarthy, LMHC, LADC- 1, Douglas McLellan, RN, M.Ed., & Luis T. Sanchez M.D. Supported by the Massachusetts Board of Registration in Nursing, Substance Abuse Rehabilitation Program (SARP), Massachusetts Department of Public Health, Massachusetts Professional Recovery System (MPRS) and Physicians Health Services While substance abuse is a problem in all population groups, its social and health consequences are more heavily concentrated among nurses, physicians, and other healthcare professionals. State regulatory agencies have developed an alternative approach to address the substance abuse needs of certain nurses and others healthcare professionals and the medical society independently has established programs for physicians. 12:15 1:45 p.m.....lunch on Your Own 1:45 5:30 p.m....all Afternoon Workshops #220 Integrating Modern Psychotherapy with the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous Allen Berger, Ph.D. In this 3-hour presentation, Dr. Berger will discuss the therapeutic value of the 12 Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous. The therapeutic effect of each Step and the synergy amongst the Steps will be the focus of this presentation along with a discussion and demonstrations of therapeutic interventions relevant for each Step. A unique feature of this presentation is Dr. Berger s discussion of the psychotherapeutic interventions designed to help patients who are stuck in working the Steps. His explanation incorporates concepts from the work of Father Joseph Martin, Dr. Harry Tiebout, Dr. Karen Horney, Fritz Perls, M.D., Dr. Nathaniel Brandon, Dr. Jerome Frank, and Father Richard Rohr. #221 Treating TBI with Co-Occurring Substance Abuse and Mental Health Challenges Tim Feeney, Ph.D., Michael Louiselle, LPN, CASAS, & John McCooey Supported by Belvedere Brain Injury Program It is the purpose of this presentation to provide information, tools, and alternatives to providers of traditional substance abuse treatment about the co-occurring challenges of traumatic brain injury, mental health issues, and alcohol/substance abuse, or any combination thereof. The attendees are exposed to the evidence-based treatment models from both the neurobehavioral and substance abuse professions focusing on a change in paradigm from the traditional medical model of treatment to one of a person-centered model. Evidence-based research, outcome studies, participant testimonials, and video presentations will be some of the means used to present this workshop. 5

6 schedule of events 1:45 3:15 p.m....early Afternoon Workshops #222 Money, Time, and Spirituality Peter Smeele Supported by Pine Grove Behavioral Health & Addiction Services We will explore the parallels between how we relate to money and time and how we develop spiritually. Using Jacob Needleman s book, Money and the Meaning of Life, as a backdrop, participants will gain insights into themselves and their patients regarding money and time and how these powerful forces affect the development of their authentic self. #223 CSAT Program: Pain and Addiction- Patient Centered Pain Management Stephen A. Wyatt, D.O. Supported by the New England Chapters of ASAM and Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, SAMHSA The identification and treatment of pain has been an important aspect of medical care for centuries. The identification of unnecessary suffering and medical complications secondary to untreated pain have placed an even greater focus on it in recent years. Unfortunately, with the advent of more frequently prescribed, novel, high potency opioids, there has been a profound increase in access to these medications. This has resulted in more abuse and dependence along with an increase in associated morbidity and mortality. A description of patient centered pain management will be presented that will identify how this concept will help to treat the patient and not just the pain. This program will describe the pathophysiology of pain and how alternative pain medications work. There will be a review of the hallmarks for identifying and monitoring the patient at risk of opioid abuse/dependence. Lastly, exit strategies available to help these patients once the problem has been identified will be explored. 3:15 4:00 p.m....afternoon Break Exhibit Hall Hosted by AdCare Hospital 4:00 5:30 p.m....late Afternoon Workshops #275 The Addiction Genome: The Disease Concept Revisited Robert Murray, M.D., Ph.D. Supported by Cumberland Heights The disease concept of addiction was introduced 25 to 30 years ago. It has served successfully to help establish addiction as a disease. However, like other areas involving the genetics of common diseases, no discrete gene with a high impact has been identified. In our present era of sophisticated molecular genetics with genome wide association studies (GWAS) if such genes were involved, they should have been found. A more fruitful approach will probably necessitate the identification of endophenotypes that may contribute to addiction at different stages in that process. #276 Women and Prescription Drugs: Misuse, Abuse, or Addiction? Martha Wunsch, M.D., FAAP, FASAM A Women, Pregnancy, and Addictions Theme Workshop, presented in collaboration with the New England Chapters of ASAM This presentation will begin with a discussion of the broad use of prescription drug misuse. The presenter will clarify the use of diagnostic criteria, case histories, and behavior to define problematic behavior involving prescription drugs, particularly among women. A review of the literature about characteristics of women misusing, abusing, and dependent upon prescription drugs, across the lifespan will be presented. Relevant information about women dying with prescription drugs identified as a direct or contributing cause of death will also be discussed. Finally, valuable tools for screening and monitoring for problematic and appropriate use of prescription drugs will be presented. 5:30 p.m exhibits Close 5:30 7:00 p.m....dinner on your own 7:00 8:30 p.m....evening Plenary #299 Shame, Addiction, and Authenticity: Helping Clients Cultivate Resilience and Hope Brené Brown, Ph.D., L.M.S.W. Supported by Hazelden A constant barrage of social-cultural messages proclaims that being imperfect is synonymous with being inadequate. In fact, nothing could be further from the truth imperfections are what connect us to each other and to our humanity. Vulnerabilities are not weaknesses, but powerful reminders to keep our hearts and minds open to the reality that everyone is deeply connected and more the same than different. This workshop explores the concepts of shame and authenticity and their relationships with addiction and recovery. Particular emphasis is placed on how to help clients find the courage to talk about their fears of being unworthy, unlovable, and not good enough so they can move through shame to live more resilient and hopeful lives. 6

Mooney, M.D. Supported by Willingway Hospital Angel calls began when the Chairman of Surgery at a major medical school discovered that about half the patients in his ICU had alcohol or drug problems, and nothing was done to help them. He found some homeless people, who were in recovery, to visit these patients and invite them to join them in recovery. This introduction to AA and NA proved more successful that traditional mental health consultations. Now, clinical trials of this methodology have validated its efficacy, and the technique is presently being applied within a community setting in a five county mental health district in North Carolina. A strong partnership has evolved between the recovering community and the mental health system, and a robust peer support initiative is currently functioning. This presentation tracks the development of effective peer support, and outlines the execution of a peer support initiative within a mental health district that possesses a commitment to preventing, identifying, and treating addiction issues. 10:15 10:45 a.m morning Break Exhibit Hall Hosted by Gosnold on Cape Cod 10:45 a.m. 12:15 p.m morning Workshops #301- Pregnancy Prevention and Well Woman Care for the Addiction Provider Mishka Terplan, M.D., M.P.H. A Women, Pregnancy, and Addictions Theme Workshop, presented in collaboration with the New England Chapters of ASAM This workshop will provide an overview of changes brought on by various drug and alcohol consumption and how substance treatment, especially pharmacologic and detoxification treatment, can both cause and interfere with fertility. We will review guidelines for a well woman exam paying particular attention to contraception with discussion of sexually transmitted diseases and Pap screening and prevention. The epidemiology and sequelae of unplanned pregnancy will be reviewed, but the bulk of the presentation will be concentrated on specific contraceptive options, their efficacy, reversibility, risks and benefits. Modified cases will be discussed to illustrate these issues. #302 Treating Substance Abuse and Pain as Co-occurring Disorders Jim Fent, M.S., MFTI, PT Supported by A Better Tomorrow Drug and alcohol treatment clinics often question the veracity of patients who complain of chronic pain in addition to the problems they experience because of their drug or alcohol addictions. However, if the objective of drug and alcohol rehabilitation is to restore the patient s functionality in work and social settings, it can be beneficial to treat chronic pain as a co-occurring disorder. Validating client s perceptions of pain makes them more receptive to receiving treatment that may ultimately free them of the psychological issues that fuel their addictions as well as their perceptions of chronic physical pain. 7

8 schedule of events #303 Addiction, Relapse, and Recovery Dealing with These Issues in the Workplace John D. Lieberman Supported by Visions Adolescent Treatment Centers The issues surrounding addiction / relapse from the point of view of an employer and manager are daunting. Relapse never happens in a vacuum and the negative effects are profound. There are signs and symptoms prior to a relapse. Managers are required to address these tumultuous situations. Rarely is there a training manual or a policy written outlining company policy. Is there a plan for the aftermath? What happens if the employee in question wants to return to work? Due to potential legal issues and systemic complications, the company usually suffers along with the employee. Planning for potential workplace relapse and setting policy with human services and your legal department is vital. This training session will address these issues from the prospective of a manager and director. Supervisors can make a positive difference for the individual in crises, clients / patients and your employees. #304 The Therapeutic Alliance and Empathy: Improving Treatment Outcomes and Quality of Clinical Services Daniel C. Frigo, LCSW, M.S.W., Ph.D. Supported by Hazelden This presentation examines the development and maintenance of the therapeutic alliance and its relationship to treatment outcome. Based on a current research and clinical experience, the presenter will discuss therapist characteristics and interventions associated with alliance formation and maintenance. In particular, the role of empathy will be examined not only as a factor in building and sustaining the alliance, but also as a therapeutic technique in working with difficult and challenging clients. #305 Addressing Tobacco and Nicotine Addiction in Addictions Treatment Greg Seward, MSHCA, LADC-I, CTTS-M Supported by ATTOC Tobacco Research, Department of Psychiatry, UMass Memorial Medical Center and UMass Medical School Everyone, regardless of his or her motivation level needs some treatment for tobacco and nicotine dependence. We will review the way tobacco use and tobacco cessation affects the individual and treatment. The impact of smoking and cessation on the liver and medication levels is explored as well as the different types of individual and group treatments, including self-help groups. #306 Addressing the Elusive Ism Carol Cannon, M.A., CADC Supported by The Bridge to Recovery This illustrated lecture/discussion will provide a forum for solidifying the instinctual wisdom of counselors and reinforcing the importance of what we have learned from pioneers in the field of codependence and adult/ children issues lest we forget. It will emphasize the fact that the founders of Alcoholics Anonymous knew there was more to be revealed. Bill Wilson prophesied that the next frontier in the recovery movement would be treating the elusive ism (issues of immaturity we now call codependence). #307 Assessment and Treatment of Pathological Gambling Jeff Friedman, M.H.S., LISAC, CCGC Supported by Cottonwood de Tucson, Inc. This workshop will discuss assessment of Pathological Gambling in the clinical setting, including gaining a better understanding of diagnostic errors and common differential and co-occurring emotional health issues associated with problematic gambling. There will be a primer on brain chemistry and the brain, along with discussion on common subtypes of pathological gambling including action and escape gambling - and the different neurochemical and neurophysiological reward responses triggered by each of these types of gambling activity. We will learn about counseling approaches and therapeutic interventions that both action and escape gamblers respond to best in various phases of the treatment process. 12:15 1:45 p.m....luncheon & Round Table Discussion Bass River #325 - To Coerce or Not to Coerce: Should Pregnant Women be Forced into Treatment under Threat of Incarceration? Gary Helmbrecht, M.D. Supported by the New England Chapters of ASAM In this presentation, we will review the various state laws regarding coercion to treatment and criminalization of drug use during pregnancy. The ethical and legal arguments for maternal v. fetal rights, definition of intent to do harm, and the consequences of incarceration will be discussed in detail. We will look at parallel situations where maternal fetocide has been committed and compare the legal consequences to those where drug use has been charged. Finally, we will develop a reasonable consensus with respect to the authority of the state to protect the fetus and actionable events during pregnancy that may warrant prosecution. The luncheon is Hosted by an unrestricted educational grant from Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals, Inc. 8

9 1:45 5:30 p.m....all Afternoon Workshop #326 The Age Wave Challenge in Addiction and Recovery Carol Colleran, CAP, ICADC, & John Dyben, M.A., CAP, CMHP, SAP Supported by Hanley Center This session will demonstrate through interactive exercises, case studies, and lecture, how the face of older adult addiction is changing and how treatment can successfully engage Boomers and older adults. The Boomer effect in older adult addiction presents both a challenge in numbers and a complex profile that impacts treatment and recovery. Older adults require slower detox, longer treatment, and holistic therapies that address generational values. The Boomer generation reflects different drug histories and life-shaping events, but this age wave is huge and represents numerous life stages. We will learn how new research will affect therapies and holistic recovery for older adults as well as why aging is not a barrier to creativity. We will also address agings importance in therapy and recovery. 1:45 3:15 p.m early Afternoon Workshops #327 CHARM-Creation of a Methadone Program for Families in Recovery Jon Brooklyn, M.D. A Women, Pregnancy, and Addictions Theme Workshop, presented in collaboration with the New England Chapters of ASAM Vermont in 2000 had no in-state treatment for opiate addiction. Pregnant women were presenting to the obstetrical and state agencies with opiate addiction and solutions were needed. A group of physicians and community agencies created a Treatment Team to coordinate this care. The program grew so rapidly it led to the establishment of the first methadone clinic in Vermont. Obstetrical and neonatal outcomes improved dramatically. With the introduction of buprenorphine, the care was expanded in the community to include local physicians. Other counties within the state established similar teams. Funding streams were established and political and health care systems were more involved. The seminar will present an historical view of the program and outcomes expanded to include strategies for establishing the same type of program elsewhere. #328 Internet Addiction at Work and Home Brian G. Le Blanc, CEAP, CLAP, CUAP, B.A., DARC Supported by Treatment Solutions Network What is internet addiction? What are the signs? The workshop will give the audience an idea of what internet addiction is and whom it affects, and the cost of this addiction emotionally and financially. Who monitors the user s computer? In addition, how does the internet-addicted person receive help? #329 Technology and Attachment Relationships John J. O Neill, LCSW, LCDC, CSAT Supported by The Menninger Clinic We live in an amazing time when we can reach out and virtually touch someone, obtain information in seconds, and communicate without limits. Over the past years, we can see the rise in the use of the Internet, cell phones, Blackberry devices, digital music players, text messaging, wireless devices, mobile entertainment, online gaming, camera phones, online social networking, and numerous other ways of communicating, being entertained, and staying connected. Sadly, it may be in the connection that we run the greatest risk of losing our ability to have healthy attached relationships. We have become so accustomed to the luxuries of technology that we may be forgetting how to play, have personal connections, and use coping skills in face-toface interactions. We can see demonstrations of this disconnect from relationships on a daily basis. Through these disconnections, we are perhaps running the greatest risk of harming our attachments to relationships and other people. The workshop will explore ways to help clients understand and explore ways to improve their attachments while healthily using technology. #330 International Roundtable Andrea G.

10 schedule of events #331 Chronic Pain Management with an Addict Kevin R. Wandler, M.D. Supported by Remuda Treatment Centers Chronic Pain affects approximately 25 percent of adults at any given time and is one of the most common causes of long-term disability. Treatment should include a bio-psycho-social-spiritual approach. If surgery is necessary, then prescribing medications and physical therapy to alleviate the pain are the next courses of action. Opiates are often used, but in a recovering addict, this can be a challenge, alternatives may be necessary. Other patients can become addicted to the pain medications themselves. A comprehensive approach to these patients is crucial. Motivational interviewing, biofeedback, and relaxation are a must. Commonly asked questions about treating chronic pain will be answered: How do I treat an addict with both Chronic Pain and an Addiction? What if my Chronic Pain patient becomes addicted? How would I know if my Chronic Pain patient becomes addicted? #332 Art Therapy Lynn McKnight, ATR-BC, MAC, CCS, LPC/S Supported by Crossroads Centre Antigua This multi-media presentation will offer a wide variety of modalities designed to grab the participants attention and comprehensively model how powerful, viable, and accessible art in therapy is as a tool with people who suffer the effects of addictions. Art Therapy is effective in helping addicted clients regulate their own emotions and process the confusion brought on by the complexities of the addicted brain. Art therapy helps to organize thought, integrate memories and resulting emotional responses;, and creates safe outlets for unresolved emotions such as anger, shame, and grief. Ultimately, this aids in the development of new neural pathways in the brain. Case studies and hands-on examples will be provided, time permitting. 3:15 4:00 p.m afternoon Break Exhibit Hall Hosted by Hanley Center 4:00 5:30 p.m....late Afternoon Workshops #350 Management of Addiction Disorders in Pregnancy Gary Helmbrecht, M.D. Supported by Alere Healthcare Women s and Children s Division A Women, Pregnancy, and Addictions Theme Workshop, presented in collaboration with the New England Chapters of ASAM This presentation is an overview of addiction disorders in pregnancy.

A recent review of medical record data at AdCare Hospital shows that during any consecutive 12-month period, over 1000 persons seeking inpatient treatment have the diagnosis of chronic Hepatitis C. In addition to co-occurring substance dependence and Hepatitis C, the majority of these individuals also have the diagnosis of a mood disorder. Given the specific self-care needs as well as risks for relapse stemming from this combination of disorders, Dr. Kolodziej developed a 12-session curriculum for an integrated, outpatient group intervention for persons in recovery from substancerelated disorders and Hepatitis C, focusing on practical tools to effectively manage this combination of disorders. #352 Buprenorphine: What it is and How to Expand Its Treatment Colleen T.

Realizing the impact growing up with one or more addicted caregivers is essential in being able to help adult children with their own recovery issues. Recent research shows that between 19 32% of those who are adult children of alcoholics are also adult children of borderline/narcissistic personality disorders. This workshop looks at the unique challenges of being an adult child of a borderline personality disordered parent. We will focus on the special concerns, experiences, and life challenges that an ACOBPD faces in their family and adult life. Participants will learn how to recognize the difference between alcoholic characteristics and those of a borderline personality disorder. We will look at how things in the family home shift from crazy making to craziness and how to help our clients deal successfully with the effects of having been raised by one or more parents with a personality disorder. #355 A Vital Balancing Act: Preventing Prescription Drug Abuse while Ensuring Legitimate Patient Access Michael C. Barnes, J.D. Supported by EMGlobal, LLC Prescription drug abuse is an increasing public health concern in the United States Over the past decade, the number of people abusing prescription medications has more than doubled. Research shows that many Americans view prescription medications, such as opioid pain relievers, as easier to acquire than illegal drugs and safe to use. Meanwhile, studies have documented widespread under-treatment of pain. It is extremely important to address this issue due to the complexities of this problem that are compounded by the participation of multiple sectors of society the medical community, state and federal governments, law enforcement, advocacy organizations, and private enterprise. 5:30 7:30 p.m....dinner on your own 6:00 p.m exhibits Close 7:30 9:30 p.m evening Workshops #398 The Fishbowl an Exercise in Intrinsic Motivation Stimulation by Extrinsic Group Facilitation Andrew J.

Barthwell, M.D., FASAM Supported by EMGlobal, LLC Prescription drug abuse is an emerging concern for treatment professionals, health and public health systems, and policy makers. While treatments systems are moving toward evidence-based responses to non-dependent use and the diagnoses of abuse and dependence, pressure is placed upon them to respond to single-drug epidemics in specific and unique ways that in most cases are in advance of the evidence. In this workshop, Dr. Barthwell will review classes of prescription drugs used in non-medical ways, rates of use, sources of drugs, and trends of use in sub-populations. She will discuss our gaps in knowledge and suggest health and public health responses to the problem. Where drug class based solutions exist, she will discuss those options. #401 The MOMS Program: a Treatment Model for Opiate Dependent Pregnant Women Denise Bouchard-Crowley, M.S., RN, CS, NP-C A Women, Pregnancy, and Addictions Theme Workshop, presented in collaboration with the New England Chapters of ASAM Maine has among the highest per capita rates of opiate addiction in the nation and young women are particularly affected.

David Mee-Lee, M.D. The addiction treatment field has achieved much over the past decade. We now work more closely with mental health for people with co-occurring disorders. Medication assisted treatment is gaining respect. Evidence-based practices are on the tip of people s tongues. Yet, in many ways, we are still far from the vision of client-directed, outcomes-driven services. This presentation will review accomplishments and four generations of addiction treatment. It will highlight where and why we are still stuck in making progress towards outcome-driven services; and how we can get the rest of the way from here. 12:00 noon evaluation and Closing Remarks Program Committee 12:00 noon exhibits Close 12

Imagine treating addiction from the inside out without having to work through all the defenses. Imagine setting the stage for profound transformative experiences. Imagine melting away the desire for addictive substances. This is possible through brain wave training. Imagine listening to classical piano music to improve sleep, alleviate anxiety, overcome depression, improve focus, and restore balance to the brain. This is possible through brain music therapy. Instead of fighting the addictive brain, imagine giving it the stimulation, rest, and balance it needs in natural, fun, and interesting ways. Consider a Happy Chair for multi-sensory integration, a color therapy extravaganza to revitalize every cell in the body, a moving meditation to calm and soothe brain and body. Imagine a mentally fit brain with strength, flexibility, stamina, speed, quickness, agility, resilience, and balance.
