THURSDAY, APRIL 22, 2021 - Keynote Speaker

Carlo DiClemente, PhD

Addiction and Change: Understanding the Journey of Initiation and Recovery

Initiation and successful recovery from addiction represent a journey through a process of change. This presentation will explore the process and identify how providers can intervene in in preventing addiction and promoting recovery. Initiation of addiction often interacts with adverse childhood experiences, mental health challenges, and critical contextual influences. Moving to free oneself from an addictive behavior involves finding the motivation, decision-making, commitment, effective planning and implementation to overcome this well maintained neurobiological and behavioral condition. Significant use of substances affects brain, body, and takes over the life space of the individual. The individual must make the journey through recovery using personal coping mechanism, seeking support and scaffolding for their compromised self-regulation, and re-center their lives. We will explore how outreach and treatment are connected to the personal journey into and out of addiction and the reality of successful recovery.
