This workshop will provide participants with knowledge to begin integrating addiction and eating disorder treatment through a trauma responsive lens.  When these disorders co-occur, it is not uncommon when receiving treatment for one disorder for symptoms of the other disorder to increase.  The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has noted that as eating disorder symptoms increase in severity, so do the number of substances used. Research indicates that 35-40% of clients with a substance use disorder also have a co-occurring eating disorder and 50% of clients with an eating disorder misuse alcohol and illicit drugs. Due to the high rate of commonalities between symptomatology, family systems, trauma and treatment approaches, it is of critical importance for healthcare providers to work collaboratively to ensure treatment is integrated.  Participants will learn how to assess for these co-occurring disorders and how to determine appropriate level of care. Additionally, treatment approaches and evidence based practices will be reviewed to begin integrating treatment.

Following this presentation, participants will be able to:

  1. Identify and assess symptoms of substance use and eating disorder symptoms
  2. Identify tools and clinical interventions to integrate treatment for these two disorders
  3. Explain the importance of trauma responsive approaches in the treatment of clients with co-occurring eating disorders and substance use disorders
  4. Describe the nutritional effects of co-occurring substance use and eating disorder
  5. Describe the effects of co-occurring SUD/ED on metabolism
  6. Identify nutrition needs during detox and post-detox
