Free NAADAC Webinar
October 17, 2012
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder commonly co-occurs with addiction. An innovative approach to treating PTSD is Integrated Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (ICBT). Based on research funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), ICBT for PTSD gives you the tools needed to fully integrate treatment of addiction and PTSD. The program combines mindful relaxation, flexible thinking and education to provide a safe, effective and well-tolerated approach for people healing from the impact of trauma in their lives
As a result of participating in this webinar, you will be able to:
- present basic information about PTSD and addiction;
