Trauma And Substance Use CE Workshop

  • Family & Children's Association 100 Old Country Road Mineola, NY, 11501 United States (map)

Multiple pathways have been proposed to explain the link between trauma and substance abuse.  A review of these theories demonstrates that the road connecting these disorders runs both ways: trauma increases the risk of developing substance abuse, and substance abuse increases the likelihood that one will experience trauma. Trauma is a primary risk factor for substance abuse

This 2-hour training provides an overview of the relationship between trauma and substance abuse.  Participants will also learn practical strategies for a trauma-informed approach to substance abuse treatment.

*licensed social workers who complete this training will receive 2 CE contact hours


  •    Overview of Trauma/Traumatic Stress
  •    Trauma as a Risk Factor of Substance Misuse
  •    Substance Abuse as a Risk Factor for Trauma
  •    A Trauma-Informed Approach to Addiction Treatment

An extra-special bonus is that ALL proceeds from this workshop will be donated to LUNA Reflections, a Long Island based nonprofit organization that designs and facilitates self-esteem building programming for young girls.  You can learn more about this awesome organization by visiting their website here.
