Webinar – Cultural Bias and Sensitivity in Substance Use Disorder Treatment: Cultural Beliefs and Recovery

September 10 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Webinar – Cultural Bias and Sensitivity in Substance Use Disorder Treatment: Cultural Beliefs and Recovery

One of the most important issues facing the addiction and mental health communities is how to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse population. People of all backgrounds and cultures struggle with addiction and co-occurring mental health disorders. Cultural differences can play a big role in one’s recovery from addiction. It can be a factor in whether or not a person even seeks help in the first place, and it can be a factor in whether or not a person receives effective treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders.

This webinar explains the role of cultural beliefs and belonging in both addiction and recovery; it demonstrates how cultural beliefs and belonging, when addressed during the treatment process, lead to better outcomes. You will see several examples of treatment and aftercare programs that are following this model.

Presented by Mn Adult & Teen Challenge in collaboration with Alliance Wellness Center, Turning Point, the ICWA Law Center, and UpWorks MN.
