Mindful Based Treatments for Anxiety-Based Addictions and Pain Management

  • Kadima 15999 West Twelve Mile Road Southfield, MI, 48076 United States (map)

Course Description:

Anxiety and Addiction are a confounding pair causing frustration and confusion for client and therapist alike.  Anxiety fuels addiction and addiction maintains anxiety. This workshop will focus on empirically based mindful approaches, including ACT: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, in treating both simultaneously.  ACT has been found to promote long term behavioral change and life engagement for individuals suffering with anxiety-based addictive disorders and is used in the VA as a primary treatment for substance addiction and anxiety disorders, including PTSD.  This workshop will also include two hours of pain management treatment using these same approaches.
