Course Information

Opioid Addiction as an Attachment Disorder

The origin of the opioid epidemic is often tied to the behaviors of an unscrupulous pharmaceutical company. While there is evidence to support this position, it may actually be preventing us from fully appreciating the situation. In this talk, we will explore the larger socio-historical factors that led to the widespread use of opioids, and how such considerations merge with research on attachment, play and pain to inform treatment approaches and recommendations.

This course is for 1.5 CE

 

Presenter

Michael is a licensed clinical psychologist, adjunct professor and the CEO of Bayside Marin, in San Rafael, California. He has worked and trained in a variety of treatment settings, including private practice, residential and outpatient addiction programs, community mental health clinics and inpatient psychiatric hospitals. Indeed, he has encountered and helped treat a wide range of mental health issues. But Michael’s focus has been on those suffering from substance misuse. This is seen in such things as his dissertation on long-term recovery from addiction and education and supervision of psychotherapists working with recovering patients. Because of this background, Michael’s goal as an administrator is to provide exceptional, ethical and collaborative clinical care. He uses this as a guide to the management of facility operations and resources, and as a commitment to quality assurance and an emphasis upon open, transparent communications.
