This engaging presentation will allow participants to examine the implications of culture in the treatment and recovery of addiction. We will examine the culture of incarceration and the challenges of re-entry, along with the culture of the Recovery movement. Additionally, we will explore the specific challenges members of various cultures experience as they participate in treatment and self-help support groups, and how Cognitive Behavioral Therapy when used effectively can help to increase outcomes for these individuals.
