Although environmental strategies are growing in popularity as sustainable, effective, and affordable interventions to mediate several complex health issues, there appears to be very little knowledge and activity regarding the application of environmental strategies specifically to relapse prevention or recovery maintenance. Given that 12 month SUD relapse rates continue to exceed 60% (McLellan et al., 2000; Hendershot et al., 2011), with only 35%- 54% of people with SUDs ever reaching remission status (Fleury et al., 2016), it is of paramount importance to begin focusing attention on successfully intervening and preventing relapse at the community level. This webinar will present the results of a qualitative study designed to identify the environmental risk factors for relapse from substance use disorders within the microcosm of Pasco County, Florida. Implications of the findings to the fields of public health and prevention will be reviewed.

Objectives:

  • describe the gaps in current relapse prevention models
  • explain the gaps in federal, state, and local responses to the addiction crises.  
  • describe community-wide risk factors for relapse
  • understand potential interventions to deploy in their local communities to reduce the risk of relapse among people in recovery from substance use disorders
Who should attend?

This webinar is designed for clinicians, clinical supervisors, program managers, prevention agencies, community coalitions and executives in substance abuse and mental health agencies, Managing Entities and DCF program staff.
