Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) in Addiction Treatment and Relapse Prevention

Tuesday, April 30, 2019 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Joseph Troncale, MD, DFASAM
Corporate Medical Director
Retreat Behavioral Health

Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT) has been shown to be useful in the treatment of addictive disorders. The cornerstones of ACT include principles of mindfulness, remaining open to new ideas and moving toward one’s values rather than escaping one’s feelings. In short, accepting feelings rather than escaping them and moving toward values rather than toward suffering define the goals of this type of behavioral therapy. Introducing patients to these principles can be done early in drug and alcohol treatment and set the tone for ongoing therapy. This workshop will demonstrate practical techniques that can be used in any therapeutic setting.
