Integrating a Trauma-Informed Approach into Substance Use Disorder Treatment

This webinar highlights how two providers operating in vastly different settings have incorporated a trauma-informed approach to care into their day-to-day practices for treating substance use disorder, and how doing so has shaped the experiences of their patients and staff.

Daniel Sumrok, MD, DFASAM, ABAM, ABPM, family physician and addiction specialist, who formerly led the University of Tennessee Health Science Center’s (UTHSC) College of Medicine’s Center for Addiction Science, discussed the challenges of treating substance use disorder in a rural setting and his approach to helping patients break the cycle of what he calls “ritualized, compulsive comfort-seeking.”

Rosalind De Lisser, MS, FNP, PMHNP, is an associate clinical professor at University of California San Francisco (UCSF) and director of integrated behavioral health services at UCSF’s Women’s HIV Program. She discussed UCSF’s efforts to build a clinical model for individuals with HIV, substance use, and mental health disorders, and the importance of taking a trauma-informed approach for this population.
