Substance Use Disorders (SUD) Prevention, Treatment & Management: Evidence-based Approaches (PRIVATE PROGRAM / Milwaukee Health Dept.) - CE Training Hours-12

 

The use of Evidence-based approaches in the prevention, treatment and management of substance use and abuse is supported by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as well as the National Institute of Drug Abuse. A great deal of research provides clear evidence to support the efficacy of using evidence-based practices over more intuitive approaches.

It is also sensitive to the unique needs of our patient population - the economic disadvantaged, HIV/AID and aging. The program looks at co-occurring disorders and how they serve to further complicate work
