Stigma is a major barrier preventing millions of people who are struggling with substance use from entering treatment today. This training will also discuss the difference in gender responsiveness and presentation for trauma.

Chris Dorval has extensive training in trauma informed care, treating co-occurring trauma and addiction, and is committed to helping others in their own personal journeys in recovery. As a person in long-term recovery himself, Chris is passionate about working with those affected by addiction and trauma and has dedicated his practice to this focus.
