VIRTUAL--One-day Training on Co-Occurring Conditions: We Came, We Saw, We Conquered Together

About the event

Upon completion of the training, participants will earn 5 NAADAC Continuing Education Credits (CE’s).
Co-Occurring conditions are no longer the exception but instead are the expectation, requiring our programs to design services that address the interrelationship among complex physical, psychiatric, and substance use conditions. This curriculum will analyze where we came from, where we are now, and where we are headed to improve services for people with co-occurring conditions. The most up-to-date principles, terminology, treatment strategies, and effective program supports will be explored. This interactive training will engage participants through the use of discussion and small group exercises.
