“ACT for Substance Use: Integrating Mindfulness and Acceptance Strategies into Early Recovery”

Rose Crouch, LPC-MHSP, NCC

As clinicians, we know that treating co-occurring substance abuse, mental health issues, and trauma is a complex process. Acceptance and commitment therapy offers a fresh, evidence-based approach to substance use recovery. ACT helps people to build psychological flexibility, decrease experiential avoidance, improve self-identity, and commit to value-driven behavioral change. In this workshop, clinicians will learn how to integrate this process-based approach to help their clients understand the roots of their addiction and maintain lasting sobriety.

Objectives:

  • Understand the six core processes of acceptance and commitment therapy and how they can be integrated into traditional substance use treatment
  • Apply specific mindfulness and acceptance strategies to help clients manage cravings, improve relationship conflict, and defuse from shame
  • Explain the benefits of increasing psychological flexibility and self-compassion as a way to sustain sobriety
