The Organic Brain Dysfunction (OBD) Triage Institute is offering a 2 day workshop entitled Addictions Treatment Design for Individuals Living with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. The workshop will focus on creating patient specific intervention strategies by taking in to account the patient’s strengths and challenges. Factors impacting risk of substance abuse and addiction will be covered in addition to factors involved in designing individual specific interventions, such as culture, patient history, learning abilities, and medical disposition. After care and service delivery will also be covered.

This workshop targets professionals involved with addictions prevention, treatment, counselling, and aftercare. The workshop will take place in Calgary, Alberta, November 23-24, 2011. This follows the Alberta FASD Conference November 21-22, 2011, also in Calgary.
