The last decades have seen substantial growth in studies on Attachment and SUD. Despite methodological problems, the general link between insecure attachment and SUD today is well established. Based on attachment theory, substance use can be understood as “self-medication,” an attempt to compensate for a lack of attachment strategies. If we can understand and help clients embrace this concept, it may help them

Upon completion of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Review the concepts of attachment theory.
  • Correlate how behaviors occur because of unconscious urges.
  • Apply attachment principles to the basic concepts of substance use disorder and how they affect individuals in the recovery process.
