4.10 Stages of Change: Addressing Chronic Substance Use Disorders
Conference Presentation | July 17, 2012
Homeless people who have substance use disorders can be at different stages of the recovery process and consequently need different kinds of interventions. The stages of change paradigm – precontemplation, contemplation, preparation, action, maintenance, and relapse – is often used to assess people with substance use disorders. This workshop will describe how to tailor interventions for people in various stages of recovery, including strategies such as harm reduction approaches, treatment, drug-free housing, and various recovery support models.
The powerpoint presentations for this workshop are available for download above.
