Older adults often experience difficult lifestyle changes such as losing loved ones, transitioning into retirement and managing chronic illnesses. Dealing with these issues can lead older adult to self-medicate, contributing to addiction to be one of the fastest growing health issues in America’s aging population.

Caron Treatment Centers and Council for Relationships present this professional training to discuss chronic illness and the ever-growing presence of substance use disorder in older adults, including the heavy implications that may arise within the family system as a result.

Educational Objectives:

  • Identify major relationship skews commonly associated with chronic illness.
  • Understand the psychosocial implications for individual and family development of various chronic illnesses.
  • Educate on the fastest growing population requiring drug and alcohol treatment at various levels of care.
  • Identify the treatment components necessary for a well-rounded, integrated approach in treating older adults.
  • Recognize the clinical needs of the caregivers and family members.
