Using the Stages of Change Model in Treatment of Substance Use Disorders
Using the Stages of Change Model in Treatment of Substance Use Disorders

Are the people you serve resistant to change? Do you find it difficult to help clients move from one step of recovery to the next? In this course, you will review updates to the widely adopted transtheoretical model (TTM) that includes the Stages of Change to help better inform the treatment you provide to individuals with substance use disorders (SUD). The information in this training can be used to address other illnesses or health conditions that require behavior change to take place. You will learn about each stage of change, a staple in recovery-oriented language, as it relates to an individual’s self-motivation to address their own recovery.
Using case vignettes and interactive exercises, you will learn how to apply these skills when you need them most in your own setting. This training is geared toward behavioral health clinicians and those who are at the forefront of delivering treatment for individuals with substance use disorders in behavioral health, addiction, and integrated treatment settings. After taking this course, you will have gained a deeper understanding of how to translate the Stages of Change more effectively into your everyday practice, both theoretically and clinically.
The goal of this course is to provide addictions, behavioral health counseling, marriage and family therapy, nursing, physician assistant, psychology, and social work professionals in health and human services settings with the skills needed to implement the Stages of Change model when treating clients with substance use disorders.
