CBT with Substance Misuse training

CBT Plus, with Alcohol & Substance Misuse.

CBT Plus, with Alcohol and Substance Misuse is an APT-Accredited 3-day course from one of the UK's leading providers of CBT and Substance Misuse training courses.

Executive Summary:

'Mood altering substances' have been around virtually since the dawn of time, so some people argue that there is every reason to accept them as part of everyday life. However, for some people, the maladaptive use of such compounds devastates their lives. Initially a pleasurable diversion, the substance in question may gradually acquire a dominant part in the person's life, insidiously wreaking havoc on relationships, finances and career, and threatening the very continuation of their lives. And it is a difficult process to reverse; hence the need for a structured and evidence-based approach from those who aim to help.

"Excellent, well-presented course with very good learning materials, relevant case studies, and a top class presenter."

"This is, without doubt, one of the most comprehensive and informative courses I have ever attended. It is certainly a practice I shall be utilising in my regular position. It was beautifully and openly presented and I feel will be something I shall not forget in a hurry. I would very much appreciate receiving another course should it come up."
