"As baby boomers reach retirement age, substance abuse among these older adults is on the rise. Besides alcohol abuse, many baby boomers suffer from illicit drug use. The good news is that it's never too late to change. The two presenters in this DVD provide easy-to-follow methods of effectively screening, assessing, and conducting brief interventions. You'll also learn more about how to utilize motivational interviewing techniques and make referral and treatment recommendations for older adults." -- Container.
