Substance Use Disorder and Treatment Needs for the Justice-Involved

NASW Michigan

1-4 p.m.

Using the ASAM Criteria as the foundation of efforts to improve treatment for substance use disorder amongst the justice-involved population (individuals who have had interactions with the criminal justice system as a defendant), social workers will be able to:
  • understand acute intoxication and withdrawal potential amongst the justice-involved population;
  • explore and assess the biomedical conditions and complications faced by the justice-involved 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 justice-involved 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.
