The “Suicidal Risk” Stigma and Seeking SUD Treatment

On December 14th, 2021, the CEO of Sierra by the Sea and Sunrise Recovery Ranch will be addressing the barriers to accessing addiction treatment and managing suicide risks that coincide with substance misuse.

Learning Objectives:

1. Understand the barriers surrounding substance use disorders and help seeking with suicidality

2. Managing and assessing suicide risk factors while in treatment

3. Strategies for managing care coordination for high risk suicidal behaviors and attempts in treatment

Recovering from substance use disorders is a challenging journey that feels more doable in an environment that tends to each individual’s complex needs and strengths. Our goal is to foster a treatment experience that is built on compassion, hope, and caring, and fueled by excellence in the provision of evidence-based and trauma-informed care.
