Addiction treatment professionals will soon be discussing family dynamics in helping people recovery from substance abuse disorders as part of a national panel series on improving addiction treatment.

The panel series event, which is being organized by Addiction Professional magazine, will take place in Warwick, Rhode Island, on December 10.

The panel will feature experts from Rhode Island and across the region, who will discuss challenges professionals face in engaging families in helping their loved ones overcome this chronic disease.

Panelists include:

  • Fay Baker, LSW, Director of Project Implementation and Acute Services at The Providence Center
  • Raymond V. Tamasi, President/CEO of Gosnold
  • Bill Kelly, LMHC, LADC, Clinical Supervisor and Consultant at Hopewell Recovery Services

The discussion will include how changing family structures are affecting client outcomes, why meaningful connections with a patient's natural supports in the community reinforce the goals of a recovery-oriented system of care, and techniques for engaging families in the addiction treatment process.
