ʻImi Ke Ola Mau a Mau: Ka Wehena o Ke Ao

September 21, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm HST

Develop an understanding of the ASAM (American Society of Addiction Medicine) from a cultural perspective
Identify strengths when working with substance use disorder from a cultural lens

The individual struggling with substance use disorder has strengths and knowledge encased in a space of incubation. As community health workers and clinicians reawaken their own identity, they embrace their own dark side and utilize their genealogy as a resource, thus the healing begins. The Hawaiian cultural approach allows for the clinician to use different modalities to reach the ultimate goal, expose the hala (fault/sin).
