There is a need for heightened awareness among clinical mental health counselors about substance abuse in the older adult population. As baby boomers age, substance abuse is expected to triple by the year 2020…and it is estimated that 5 million older adults will need treatment. In this workshop, social workers will gain awareness of the problem as well as valuable knowledge to identify and support this population of older adults successfully.
