Addiction Treatment Series

Join us September 28th for part one of the Addiction Treatment Series: “Current Tools in Behavioral Health and Addiction Care for Rural Healthcare and Beyond.” With so much in progress in the increasingly critical topic of addiction treatment and its integration with mental/behavioral health, it can be difficult for healthcare professionals to keep up with what kind of resources are available and how to utilize them. In this kick-off to our series, Dr. Ries of the UW Medical School will familiarize you with current tools and resources available here in Washington State aimed at effectively caring for mental/behavioral health populations, addressing warning signs of addiction, employing intervention tools, and utilizing best practices for referral to treatment. These include expanded telehealth tools and the new UW PACC program, designed to expand the behavioral health and addictions care capacity of healthcare professionals especially in remote, underserved areas. The webinar will be appropriate for primary care providers, mental health or addictions providers, psychiatrists, and rural healthcare professionals. Register here.
