Session Length is 75 minutes.

LaTisha Bader, PhD, CC-AASP, Center for Dependency, Addiction and Rehabilitation (CeDAR)
Kelsey Erickson, PhD, Leeds Beckett University

Drawing on their current practice and research, Drs. Erickson and Bader will address the current zeitgeist of athletes and addiction including drugs of abuse, addictive potential, influence on performance, as well as use and withdrawal concerns. They will also look specifically at the issue of performance enhancing drug (PED) use in sport, highlighting the complexity of the phenomenon across varying landscapes. The session will offer practical implications by identifying current trends, exploring important talking points to use with athletes and administration, and underlining available resources, including RE>ACT (‘recognize’ and ‘take action’) – a clean sport bystander intervention that encourages and equips student-athletes to take personal responsibility and address intervention-worthy substance use situations.
