Course Description

This course examines the unique challenges associated with developing a relapse prevention plan for those clients that are on Medication Assisted Treatment, and/or doing Harm Reduction Program. Both treatment models are viable options for SUD clients, and both are increasingly more often utilized. However, each of these approaches tend to put the client in a precarious place when it comes to identifying what it means to actually be in “Recovery”. In the CENAPS model of Relapse Prevention we propose that to be in relapse one must first be in recovery. Often with Medication Assisted Treatment and Harm Reduction models, the definition of recovery can be subjective and varied depending on the client and/or provider and many times for these clients it’s highly recommend, and in some cases even mandated, they don’t receive adequate counseling, outpatient services, or other support services. Their participation in self-help groups can be challenging due to those group’s definition of abstinence. These circumstances make it challenging for some clients to determine when and if they relapse and what to do about it when and if they do. This presentation will help define and quantify what it means to be in recovery for these clients and in turn help them to develop a viable relapse prevention plan. This is an underserved population that often find itself in “Recovery limbo”.
