Betsy Byler has been a therapist since 2003. She is passionate about treating trauma, working with substance use, and training therapists in both areas. 

In this episode, Betsy explains why adding substance use to your scope of practice is easier than you think. Many of us didn't get the training we needed to deal with substance use; however, Betsy reveals how you already have the skills to handle these clients. We talk about why therapy is essential in treating substance use; clients will do better if they have both a mental health therapist and a substance use specialist. Tune in as we chat about when your client needs to be referred to a specialist, rewiring the brain for sobriety, and using Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) for substance use.
