Understanding The Relationship Between Grief And Addiction

This Gateway training provides an introduction to understanding the relationship between grief and addiction. Individuals experiencing grief and loss may turn to drugs and alcohol to cope, which could lead to an alcohol or drug dependency. For those already struggling with a substance use disorder, grief and loss can be substantial triggers for relapse.

What You Will Learn

  • Understand the relationship between stages of grief and substance use disorders.
  • Identifying symptoms and behaviors an individual who struggles with grief and addiction may exhibit.
  • Learn the treatment strategies and intervention techniques used in addiction treatment to help individuals who may be using substances to cope with grief and loss issues.
