Addressing Barriers to Treatment and Steps to Recovery
This no-holds-barred presentation describes the barriers to treatment, what works (shedding light on ineffective approaches) and how individuals, communities, and work environments can get help for those around them.According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, “it is estimated that 2.1 million people in the United States suffer from substance use disorders related to prescription opioid pain relievers.”As a society, we are not prepared for the challenges that this new wave of addiction will bring. This presentation, geared toward organizations working with, and individuals impacted by, those struggling with addiction, helps create effective measures to move forward.
Tame the Hurricane: The Guide to Navigating Crisis
Today families and individuals encounter countless challenging situations. From addiction to depression to unhealthy relationships, these types of crises are circumstances that we are not taught how to address. Which means they keep festering.Toxic situations slowly get worse and worse. This presentation empowers dedicated individuals currently navigating relational crises or unhealthy family dynamics to take action. Tangible steps forward include giving the audience permission to take the actions in their best interest, how to outline boundaries, and steps for navigating the aftermath of a crisis.
Creating Changes that Last
As a society, we are striving to create policy, develop organizations, and implement resources to help curb the growing epidemics we are seeing. Today, we have prison overcrowding, rising recidivism, opioid addiction, and other complex challenges. This presentation equips community activators and organizations to take regional and national measures that create lasting change. Too often there is a disconnect between policy and real life. Other times, organizations that are creating substantial changes struggle to secure necessary funding. Scott shines a light on the discrepancies and helps outline effective measures for moving forward to changes that last.
