Integrating Spirituality and Psychotherapy in Addiction Treatment Rise and Shine Virtual Event

Course Summary:

The spiritually-based 12-Step Program is the foundation for most treatment programs. Addictions counseling commonly involves 12-Step facilitation as part of its process. Exploring, supporting and enhancing spirituality in clients’ recovery is considered key to successful and sustained recovery. This session is geared toward exploring the value of spiritual practices in addictions treatment and ongoing recovery.

Participants will

  • Examine the fundamental roles that counseling and psychotherapy play in facilitation of clients’ spiritual understanding and practice, whatever form it may take.
  • Learn how spiritual practices support attitudes and behaviors conducive to sustained and successful recovery.
  • Explore spiritual practices commonly used in recovery from addiction, which can be inclusive or exclusive of religious traditions, and learn how they can be facilitated in addictions counseling.
