Meth: Reframing Perspectives

Join Dr. Amy Evans, Ph.D., professor for Hazelden Betty Ford Graduate School of Addiction Studies, as she explores the resurgence of methamphetamine use both locally and nationally. She will discuss the trends and impact of methamphetamine use both on the individual struggling with addiction, and the impact on their family. Examine and breakdown the biases of methamphetamine users. Through this training, you will learn that methamphetamine users are not just those you see in the news and on TV. Not all who use methamphetamine become addicted, they are not all violent or dangerous, and recovery IS possible. Learn to best support your clients by applying evidence-based practices to work through their struggles with addiction. Discover local resources that are available for professionals, individuals and family members. In the end, create a plan for implementing knowledge from this training.
