VIRTUAL--One-day Training on Evidence Based Approaches to the Treatment of Substance Use Disorders

About the event

Upon completion of the training, participants will earn 5 NAADAC Continuing Education Credits (CE’s).
This session will summarize the best clinical science available for the treatment of substance use disorders. We will review the importance of the therapeutic alliance and highlight interpersonal approaches that are known to best motivate change. Furthermore, we will provide an overview of the available treatment approaches that appear to work best, including a review of the evidence-based behavioral modalities and anti-craving medications. We will cover nicotine, alcohol, opioid, and other illicit substance use disorders. We will conclude with a discussion about what evidence-based approaches are optimal for remote delivery with an emphasis on the practical aspect of what you can do with the person on the other end of the line.
