Dr. Aaron Van Gaver, Naturopathic Physician
Be part of the workshop – Project Starlight – The Addiction Workshop. A workshop that trains the next generation of naturopathic doctors and allied health professionals (RMTs, DCs, PTs, OTs, etc. ) how to ask the right questions, screen for addiction and provide referral to treatment.
Project StarLight Workshops & Public Speaking:
Calling on all healthcare professionals! Are you asking your patients the important questions? Are you uncomfortable when it comes to talking about substance use with patients? Do their stories shock you? You are not alone, in fact most healthcare providers (unless you work with addiction) find that they just don’t know enough about how to recognize and question patients about their relationship with substance use or compulsive behaviors. Project StarLight is reaching out to those healthcare professionals (naturopathic physicians, medical doctors, chiropractors, TCM/acupuncturists, massage therapist and others). If you are interested in having a workshop created or have me speak at a function, please contact me.
Through Project StarLight, I hope to educate colleagues, remove stigma and empower more doctors/practitioners to reach out and be compassionate advocates for their patients/clients. Most likely you know someone with an addiction, perhaps someone struggling and needing help – if they were your family, what would you say?
