Archstone Behavioral Health – Facilitating Acceptance of MAT Clients in Sober Communities
February 28, 2020
This course will examine how those active in treatment and recovery can assist to facilitate acceptance of MAT clients in traditionally “sober” communities. This will be achieved by reviewing MAT medications for OUD. Learning how professionals can change to a person centered language that empowers MAT clients to shift focus on “recovery” versus “abstinence.” Familiarize ourselves with MAT discrimination, identify instances that occur in both treatment and recovery settings. Understand how to empower clients that may be victims of MAT discrimination to access assistance appropriately. Come to understand that there are alternatives to traditional 12-step (AA/NA) programs that may be a more comfortable environment for clients receiving MAT for OUD.

She has also recently worked as a professor of nursing for a local state college. Christin earned a master’s degree in nursing education in 2017 and will graduate with a doctorate in nursing practice in 2020.

She chose to work at Archstone because they offer treatment in a smaller intimate environment that allows our staff to focus on quality care rather than focusing on quantity. The patients at Archstone receive the attention they need as individuals to progress into their best version of themselves.
