Collaborative Care in Addiction Treatment: What Are You Doing? 

The impact of Integrative Health in addiction treatment requires the identification and treatment of both behavioral and medical conditions. This process involves screening, consultation, and intervention in a coordinated manner that promotes health and wellness. The importance of creating strategies for increasing both patient and staff literacy with a phased in activation will be presented with case examples. Data from this process of implementation will be provided for discussion as well as a model of care. Finally, an assessment of your organizations readiness with fidelity scales will be provided for enhanced commitment to patient care.

In recent decades, healthcare has begun to move away from siloization and toward a model of coordinated care.  Primary care providers are increasingly seen as the ones who are in charge of overseeing the care process, which ensures that one person is responsible for the overall direction of treatment. They maintain the patient-centered care team which allows individuals to feel grounded and the technology has facilitated this with electronic health record (EHR) systems making the sharing and documenting of patient information much easier and more transferable.  While healthcare has evolved to include specializations in data science, health systems management, and population health; the field still has progress to make—especially with regard to  integration with behavioral health and addiction. Therefore, working side-by-side with medical providers should be the goal of behavioral health provider communities, including social workers.

From this workshop, participants will be able to:

• Define both Integrative and Coordinated Care

• List methods available for clinically aligning Addiction Treatment, Behavioral Health, and Primary Care

• Assess your organizations readiness for implementation of coordinated care

• Generate fidelity scales to assess progress of integration


This training is designed for mental health professionals. This continuing education workshop provides 3 clinical hours. The cost of 1 ticket is $85. Tulane University adjuncts, DSW students, faculty, and staff may contact us for discount codes. Only Master Card and Visa Accepted.
