Presented here is a substance abuse treatment that acknowledges and accommodates the personal needs being addressed by substance use. The Utilization Sobriety approach bypasses perceived resistance and
employs idiosyncratic psychobiological learning to achieve a body-mind gestalt complementary to the client’s sobriety. This method develops a safe framework for addressing any subsequent mental health themes directly or indirectly related to substance misuse.

Educational objectives:

1. Understand the application of ideomotor and ideosensory questioning.
2. Understand the utilization concept as it applies to psychobiological learning.
3. Understand how to anchor and experience for future reference.
