“Spirituality, Addiction and the Workplace”
presented by Bud Williams, Director and CEO of The Gooden Center

March 22, 2013

Please join us for a very informative and interesting presentation on addressing Spirituality, Addiction and the Workplace with Bud Williams, Director and CEO of The Gooden Center.

Spirituality can sometimes be an issue when the EAP is assessing an employee, and/or their family member for referral to addiction treatment. Spirituality issues that may surface in relationship to addiction treatment could include:

  1. What is the place of spirituality in addiction treatment?
  2. What role does it play in programs the EAP is considering for a referral?
  3. How to explain the difference between spirituality and religion.
  4. How to address a client’s insistence on a religious orientation to treatment.

Bud will also review with the audience two spiritual assessment tools used in some treatment programs, The Daily Spiritual Experiences Scale and Spiritual Well Being Scale.

The Rev. Bud Williams has been the Director and CEO of the Gooden Center in Pasadena, Ca. The Gooden Center is a well-respected and established residential alcohol and drug treatment agency. Bud has his MBA from the University of Judaism, a Masters of Divinity from General Theological Seminary and is a member of the National Association of Addiction Treatment Providers and The Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles California.
