| The growth rate for Americans over the age of 60 is expected to increase 65% over the next five years. The prevalence of addiction substance use disorders and trauma among adults age 40 and older is also growing at a very fast rate. Older adults who complete 30 days or less in an inpatient/residential treatment centers often relapse shortly after discharge.
This is due to several factors including generational and gender beliefs and creating a therapeutic alliance. This webinar will help participants become more aware of some of the clinical challenges in treating this older population as well as gain insights into the role that mindfulness and meditation play in SUD (substance use disorder) and trauma recovery from both a clinical and spiritual perspective.
