The DSM 5 added “cravings” to the criteria for substance use disorders in October, 2015, while noting that cravings may persist well past the period of post-acute withdrawal. Just as addiction can impact every area of life, so too must the approach for cravings management. The goals for this workshop will be to review the literature on cravings management techniques, describe in detail four craving types and elicit a discussion of multi-faceted approaches to use in a variety of treatment settings to assist clients in cravings management. This dynamic presentation is both experiential and educational with the use of mixed-media and pop-culture references.
The presenter is Doug Paul, LPC, CPCS, LMHC, QS.
