It is estimated that nearly 60% of people aged 12 or older used tobacco, alcohol, or other substances within the past month. Additionally, an estimated 3.2 million people seek help through outpatient rehabilitation or mental health treatment (Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration [SAMHSA], 2021). It is essential that behavioral healthcare providers know what to expect when working with someone in early recovery. 

This course introduces you to best practices in supporting individuals in early recovery from substance use disorders. You will learn about the stages of early recovery as well as about substance withdrawal. You will also learn about common co-occurring mental health and medical conditions. Finally, you will learn about common interventions that can help you in your work with people in early recovery. 

The goal of this course is to provide addictions, behavioral health counseling, case management/care management, marriage and family therapy, nursing, psychology, and social work professionals in health and human services settings with the skills needed to support those in early recovery from substance use.
