VIRTUAL--One-day Medications in Treatment (MAT) Training

This is an exclusive training for Prevention First Inc.. Please contact the hosting agency for registration details.

About the event

One of the challenges of Medications in Treatment (MAT) is that clients and counselors often focus on the medication and lose the balance of full recovery. This M.D. level facilitated workshop will focus on how to use the evidence-based practices of motivational interviewing cognitive behavioral therapy, and the trans-theoretical model of behavior change to broaden substance use disorder treatment beyond the “bio” (as in bio-psychosocial) administration of the medication. It will help providers collaborate with clients to individualize substance use treatment and develop person-centered services that hold clients accountable and attract them to recovery.
