Join Ric Kruszynski, MSSA, LISW, LICDC, director of SAMI consulting and training at the Center for Evidence-Based Practices of Case Western Reserve University, at the 2012 North Dakota Alcohol & Substance Abuse Summit, which takes place September 4 to 6, 2012. Kruszynski will present the following:

  • Title: "Recovery Management: New Directions in the Treatment of Addiction"

  • Date:  Wednesday, September 5, 2012
  • Time:  10 am to 3:15 pm
  • Presenter:  Ric Kruszynski, MSSA, LISW, LICDC  (get bio)
  • Abstract:  Recovery Management (RM) is a philosophical framework for organizing addiction treatment services to provide pre-recovery identification and engagement, recovery initiation and stabilization, long‐term recovery maintenance, and quality-of-life enhancement for individuals and families affected by severe substance use disorders. Recovery-Oriented Systems of Care, such as the RM model developed by William White, have begun to shape the future of addictions treatment programming. Acute Care (AC) models of treatment are not the best frameworks treating severe and persistent AOD problems. This workshop will explore the core principles of the Recovery Management model and will look to advance the discussion about how treatment services can be made more relevant and effective for individuals with severe and persistent alcohol and drug issues.


The 2012 North Dakota Alcohol & Substance Abuse Summit is designed to bring the alcohol and substance abuse field and other interested professionals together to look toward the future of treatment in North Dakota. The Summit is a very important opportunity to provide input and feedback to the Division in its efforts to provide leadership, support and assistance to the field.

  • Wednesday, September 5, 2012:  8:15a to 5p + evening events.
