In the past, I would return from treatment and fall back into the same old behaviors. The IHAT Model empowered me to be successful in my own home. It allowed me to walk through my challenges with support and enabled me to come out the other side with skills to cope with these challenges.

The IHAT Model training is an amazing foundation for evaluating and collaborating in the early stages of Recovery with a Client, then provide support services to those in any stage of Recovery. It helps you understand wellness and the integration into everyday living situations. IHAT puts the "Care" back into "Health Care" focusing on In-Home Addiction Treatment.

I’ve been both an educator and treatment provider in the past. Being able to combine my skills to empower IHAT Practitioners to serve people struggling with substance use disorder is incredibly fulfilling. The IHAT Institute gives me the tools I need to instill skills and confidence.
