Help for Providers Families Struggling with Substance Abuse

Training for providers and families October 8-9 

Presented by Colorado psychiatrist and

2022 VT Psychiatric Association keynote speaker

Dr. Libby Stuyt

Helping Providers Help Families – October 8:

Training mentors, coaches, teachers, therapists, first responders, clergy and administrators to support stressed families and/or families coping with a loved one’s substance use disorder.  Saturday, October 8 at 1:30 PM – 3:00 PM, at Jenna’s House on 117 Saint Johns Road, Johnson. Snacks provided. Free, registration requested

Teaching Coping Techniques to Families – October 9:

One in three families have a loved one struggling with a use disorder. Pouring one’s life into helping a loved one suffering from a substance use disorder carries its own risks to one’s own physical, financial and mental health. Impacts can include anxiety, and sometimes unrelenting depression. Learn evidence-based techniques such as acupuncture, acupressure, biofeedback, and other emotional self-regulation techniques to swiftly de-escalate a difficult situation by decreasing stress and anxiety. 

Sunday, October 9, 4 – 5:30 PM at Rock Point Center on 20 Rock Point Road in Burlington. Free, registration requested.

  1. Outstanding ! There is too little help outside of institutions, jails and death for addicts.

  2. I hope someone will be recording these sessions. Dr. Libby Stuyt has been a fountain of healthy advice in Vermont on other occasions. It would be awesome to get recordings of these sessions to all of the Turning Points in Vermont and any who work with addiction and rehab – including family members.
