Framing Addiction Within Social Interdependence Theory: The Relationship Between Addiction and Unhealthy Family Systems

30-Minute Poster Session
M. Kristina DePue, Matthew D. Munyon 
The presence of relationship distress in the family system makes coping with and recovering from individual distress more difficult, as well as contributing to the increased likelihood of relapse to substance use. This concept is known as social interdependence theory, which states that the actions of one group member influence the actions of other group members and thus the dynamic of the group itself and has not been applied to addictions in current literature. This poster will demonstrate how the family system is interdependent with individual addiction, explain strategies for working with clients and family systems in addiction treatment, and describe methods for helping clients to prevent relapse by considering the role of the family.

SMART Recovery: A Potential Alternative to Traditional 12-Step Approaches for Substance Abuse and Substance Dependence

30-Minute Poster Session
Julie Bates 
Self-Management And Recovery Training (SMART) is an after-care program for people seeking recovery from addiction. SMART meetings are led by volunteer facilitators who receive training. The program states that it incorporates theoretical foundations from CBT and REBT, which is distinct from traditional 12-step meetings. Research was lacking to describe SMART members and facilitators, as was research to determine how members and facilitators rank-order recovery goals. The findings outline how SMART members differ from 12-step members. This poster will provide an overview of research findings related to these gaps in the literature. An emphasis on how counselors can use this information for treatment planning is included.

Effectiveness of Recovery High Schools as Continuing Care for Substance Use and Co-Occurring Disorders: Preliminary Findings

30-Minute Poster Session
Andy Finch 
Recovery high schools offer academics within an environment promoting recovery. Features include the maintenance of a drug-free learning environment with post-treatment continuing care. This poster will examine preliminary data from a NIDA-funded study evaluating the effectiveness of recovery high schools for improving behavioral and academic outcomes of adolescents with substance use and co-occurring disorders. The study represents the first rigorous research on the effectiveness of recovery schools, and it considers whether recovery high schools are more effective than regular high schools combined with the usual continuing care support services in preventing relapse, facilitating academic achievement, and reducing dropout for students in recovery.
