THE SILVER TSUNAMI: OLDER ADULT ADDICTION (Friday, Aug 31, 2018 8:30 am - 9:30 am)

Addiction is easily misunderstood and misdiagnosed in older adults because symptoms often mimic other disorders and problems related to older age. Additionally, age-related physiological, psychological and social changes make older adults more vulnerable to the detrimental effects of alcohol and illicit drugs.This workshop will identify the challenges of treating addiction in these populations and effective approaches to treatment. 

Learning Objectives:

1. To educate on the fastest growing population requiring drug and alcohol treatment at various levels of care.
2. To understand the treatment components necessary to provide a well-rounded, integrated approach for older adult care.
3. To address the clinical needs necessary to treat the entire family system with particular focus on care giving. ?
