Social and family support are predictors of treatment retention, sustained recovery, and improved quality of life for persons with substance use disorder. Yet, family members are not engaged in addiction treatment settings to improve their health or that of their loved ones. It is important for addiction care teams to understand how information and education provided to family members can impact the course of a loved one’s treatment and recovery. Some basic changes can be made to integrate this invaluable resource into addiction care.

The goal of the PCSS Clinical Roundtable is to support interactions among addiction experts and health professionals. Take advantage of these unique opportunities to engage your peers and get your questions answered!
