2015 SBIRT Webinar Series Announced

Advertisements

Did you know that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) includes substance use disorders as one of the ten elements of essential health benefits? This means that all health insurance sold on Health Insurance Exchanges or provided by Medicaid to certain newly eligible adults must include services for substance use disorders. It is assumed that some of these new patients may need intervention and treatment services for substance use disorders.

To fill this service need, training about how to detect substance use disorders is imperative. As a part of this effort, NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, has partnered with National SBIRT ATTC, NORC at the University of Chicago, The BIG Initiative, and SAMHSA to deliver a FREE 8-part webinar series called the 2015 SBIRT Webinar Series. All webinars are worth 1.5 CEs.

Here is the full schedule:
