Substance Abuse Treatment Needs for Deaf and Hard of Hearing People

NASW Michigan

1-4 p.m.

Deaf and hard of hearing individuals possess a number of risk factors for SUD including social isolation, access to resources, and unemployment. In this microcourse, Deb Guthmann, Ed.D., NIC, and Dr. Makoto Ikegami co-host a training founded upon the ASAM Criteria to improve treatment for SUD among this population.

After the course social workers will be able to:
  • understand acute intoxication and withdrawal potential amongst the deaf and hard of hearing population;
  • explore and assess the biomedical conditions and complications faced by deaf and hard-of-hearing people with substance use disorder;
  • assess emotional, behavioral, or cognitive conditions and complications;
  • understand and assess the stages of change;
  • assess relapse, continued use, or continued problem potential amongst the deaf and hard of hearing population; and
  • assess how environmental factors such as living arrangements and social support systems impact recovery.
In addition to the six dimensions of the ASAM criteria, this training will also include a wellness piece that will educate and provide social work practitioners with the tools to practice healthy habits on a regular basis to attain better health and wellbeing.
