Training and Consultation Services Detail
Educational Services for Individual Practitioners

Opioid Awareness Training

Intended audience:  SUD Clinical Practitioners, Medical Practitioners and Frontline Support Staff Members

Every day 91 individuals are dying from an opioid overdose (CDC, 2016). However, there are evidence-based practices that can be employed by practitioners in their community systems to impact the epidemic.  This training for individual practitioners will educate participants about the opioid epidemic, opioid use disorder (OUD) and the evidence-based practices that can prevent, intervene, treat, and support the recovery of OUD.

Participants who attend this one-day program will understand:

  • Current data about the opioid epidemic across the nation from a public health perspective
  • The science of addiction and the complexities of Opioid Use Disorder (OUD) and treating OUD patients
  • A multi-agency community continuum of care model to most effectively identify, treat and support the recovery of OUD patients
  • Evidence-based models for the detection and treatment of OUD and how they are used by multiple community agency providers
  • CDC's safe prescribing guidelines for prescription opioids
  • The principles of Screening, Brief Intervention and Referral to Treatment (SBIRT) and medication-assisted treatment (MAT) two evidence-based practices highly recommended for the detection and treatment of OUD
  • Best practices for prescribing medications used to treat addiction;  Buprenorphine, Suboxone, and Vivitrol, and relevant Federal and State requirements for physician, physician assistant, and nurse practitioner prescribers

 

Provider Readiness Assessment for Implementing Evidence-based Practices in the Detection & Treatment of Substance Use Disorder

Intended audience:  Substance use disorder provider leaders and researchers

It is challenging for providers to understand and assess the extent of their system's current implementation of evidence-base practices (EBPs) for substance use disorder.  Add the complexity and acuity of opioid use disorder, and there are additional cultural challenges involved with the adoption of certain EBPs like Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) by traditional abstinence-based providers.

This training, delivered by experts from the Butler Center for Research at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation -will offer providers an opportunity to learn, assess, and be coached real-time in their evidence-based planning efforts to meet the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act funding and best serve the opioid use disordered patient.

Participants who attend this one-day program will understand:

  • The most effective EBPs for substance use disorder as identified by SAMHSA and NIDA
  • A profile of the opioid use disordered patient and which EBPs best serve them for effective treatment and recovery
  • Through a structured, guided inventory, how EBPs are currently being used in their system
  • Their system's current strengths in EBP delivery, gaps in service offerings, gaps in organizational capabilities to launch services
  • Requirements for the fidelity of implementation for EBPs
  • Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation expert recommendations for the adoption of EBP for opioid use disorder in their system, delivered in a report to the system within a month post-training

 

COR-12 Leadership Training

Intended audience:  Agency leadership, clinical and medical directors, physician and nursing heads

When integrating medication-assisted treatment into an organization, careful planning and consideration is essential. There are implications for implementing MAT at the administrative, medical, clinical, recovery management, and patient/family levels. A strong communication plan for key stakeholders and an action plan for addressing challenges is critical.

This training, delivered by clinical and training experts, provides an organization's leadership team with the knowledge, skills, and tools to successfully implement a comprehensive plan for treating opioid use disorders within their system.

Participants who attend this three-day training will understand:

  • Current data in their state and the need for expanded treatment services
  • Basic pharmacology and implications associated with opioid medication-assisted therapy (MAT)
  • MAT and its use as an adjunct to long-term engagement in treatment and recover
  • How to integrate MAT with other evidence-based therapies, including motivational enhancement therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, Twelve-Step facilitation, community reinforcement training, and contingency management
  • The process a COR-12™ patient and his or her family follows from pre-entry through treatment and transition to the next level of care, including participation in ongoing recovery support groups
  • Care for families who are affected by opioid addiction
  • Guiding principles for systems change and helpful implementation processes
  • Implications for implementing MAT for opioid use disorder at the administrative, medical, clinical, recovery management, and patient/family levels
  • How to develop a communications plan for the organization's board of directors or state boards, staff members, alumni, referents, other treatment providers, and media
  • Challenges to implementing a comprehensive approach to opioid treatment (including MAT) and how to address these challenges

 

COR-12 Practitioner Training

Intended audience:  Front line and clinical staff

This training, delivered by clinical and training experts, provides clinicians with the knowledge, skills, and tools to more successfully provide services for persons with opioid use disorders.

Participants who attend this three-day training will understand:

  • Current data on the opioid epidemic and the need for expanded services throughout the continuum of care
  • Basic pharmacology and implications associated with medication-assisted therapy (MAT) for opioid use disorders.
  • MAT and its use as an adjunct to long-term engagement in treatment and recovery
  • The stigma that surrounds both opioid addiction and treatment, paying careful attention to biased language
  • How to integrate MAT with other evidence-based therapies, including motivational enhancement therapy, cognitive-behavioral therapy, Twelve Step facilitation, stage-wise engagement/treatment, and contingency management
  • The treatment and recovery process for someone who has an opioid use disorder from pre-entry through assessment, treatment, and transition to the next level of care, including participation in ongoing recovery support groups
  • Revised care for individuals and families who are affected by opioid addiction
  • Challenges to implementing a comprehensive approach to opioid treatment (including MAT) and develop a personal action plan for addressing these challenges
  • How to implement changes in how opioid use disorders are treated at the organization's facility and its partner organizations

 

Provider Fidelity of Implementation and Evaluation of Evidence-based Practices used in the Detection and Treatment of Opioid Use Disorder

Intended audience:  Substance use disorder provider leaders and researchers that are implementing evidence-based practices (EBPs) for the detection and treatment of opioid use disorder (OUD)

This training, the last in the training series for providers seeking to meet the requirements of the 21st Century Cures Act is delivered by experts from the Butler Center for Research at the Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation.  Intended to be utilized by providers after they have begun the implementation of specific evidence-based practices (EBPs) in their systems, the training will offer providers an opportunity to learn, assess, and be coached real-time to evaluate the fidelity of implementation of the EBPs that they are implementing in their system to best serve the opioid use disordered patient.  Further, providers will utilize their real-time fidelity of implementation data to inform the development of a research model to a conduct program and patient outcome evaluation study.    

Participants who attend this one-day program will understand:

  • The relationship between substance use disorder evidence-based practice treatment models, the fidelity of implementation of those treatment models, and effective program and patient outcome evaluation
  • How to use a Hazelden Betty Ford expert tool to conduct a fidelity assessment of EBPs for opioid use disorder
  • Their system's current level of success with the implementation of EBPs for opioid use disorder and how to use these results to inform their system planning and programming
  • A Hazelden Betty Ford developed research model for conducting program and patient outcome evaluation specific to opioid use disorder programming
  • Their system's current readiness to conduct a program and patient outcome evaluation study
  • Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation expert recommendations for their system to improve their EBP fidelity of implementation and conduct a program and patient outcome evaluation study specific to opioid use disorder programming.  These recommendations will be delivered in a report to the system within a month post-training

 

Effective Recovery Support for Individuals with Opioid Use Disorder

Intended audience:  SUD Practitioners, half-way house and sober home practitioners, and individuals responsible for supporting and implementing comprehensive recovery support services for opioid use disordered individuals

Individuals with opioid use disorder can suffer a "triple stigma" within the communities that need to support them.  One, they are addicts.  Two, if they are heroin-dependent, they are viewed as the most extreme of addicts.  And three, if they utilize medications in support of their recovery, recovery peers often tell them they "aren't really in recovery".  This stigma provides a significant challenge for those practitioners and individuals working to support the recovery of those who are opioid use disordered.

This training will focus on understanding evidence-based practices for the effective recovery management of individuals with opioid use disorder and how these practices can be adopted and used in agencies and communities to provide a full continuum of care for this high risk population.

Participants who attend this one-day program will understand:

  • A multi-agency community continuum of care model to most effectively identify, treat, and support the recovery of OUD patients
  • Evidence-based practices involved in effective recovery management, and how these be tailored  to the specific needs of the opioid use disordered individual
  • The Hazelden Betty Ford Foundation expert model of recovery management and how to use the model in agencies and communities
  • The role and importance of OUD treatment providers in effective community recovery management
  • The role and importance of half-way houses and sober homes in effective community recovery management
  • The role and importance of Peer Support Groups and Peer Recovery Coaches in effective community recovery management
  • The integration of clinical and peer-based services into an effective continuum of care to serve opioid use disordered individuals
