Description

It has long been recognized that abuse by an intimate partner increases a person’s risk for developing a range of health conditions, including substance use disorders (SUD). Research has found high rates of both past and current intimate partner violence (IPV) among people in SUD treatment settings. At the same time, survivors often face siloed services with little access to safety or stability in recovery. This workshop will offer an overview of the intersection between substance use disorders and victimization by an intimate partner, as well as best practices in safe and effective treatment for survivors.

Presenter

Gabriela Zapata-Alma, LCSW, CADC, is the Associate Director of the National Center on Domestic Violence, Trauma, and Mental Health, as well as faculty at the University of Chicago, where they direct the Alcohol and Other Drug Counselor Training Program within the Crown Family School of Social Work, Policy, and Practice. Zapata-Alma brings over 15 years of experience supporting people impacted by structural and interpersonal violence through evidence-based clinical, housing, resource advocacy, and HIV integrated care programs. Currently, Zapata-Alma authors best practices, leads national capacity-building efforts, and provides trauma-informed policy consultation to advance health equity and social justice.
