This workshop will examine the DSM-5 criteria for Substance Use Disorders (SUDs). We will explore the nuances between “appropriately” using a substance vs. abusing and depending on a substance. We will focus on alcohol, marijuana, and prescription medications in understanding how to properly assess our clients for SUD treatment needs, co-occurring complications, and referral.

Participants will:

  • Gain an understanding of commonly abused substances and their effects.
  • Discern use of substances that warrant a diagnosis.
  • Become aware of complications when dealing with co-morbid disorders.
  • Identify their limits of ethical practice and the process of referral to a higher level of care for SUDs.

Kristy Aspinwall is certified in the specialized treatment of addiction and trauma-related disorders. She has worked with substance use disorders in inpatient and outpatient capacities for the past 7 years and has developed several psychoeducational group curricula.
