In this webinar, attendees will explore the promising practices and insights learned since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, when the delivery of substance use disorder treatment transformed to incorporate and rely on telehealth. We will discuss the changes in SUD treatment that occurred over the past year and how practitioners can utilize telehealth to improve substance use disorder treatment through and beyond the pandemic. Organizations, professionals, and clients can each take specific steps to maximize telehealth services. Attendees will learn strategies to promote these steps, including the use of a provider and client checklist for telehealth as well as an organizational QuickStart guide. Participants will be able to:
• Describe how telehealth can support the evolving practices of substance use disorder treatment. • Discuss promising practices utilized by professionals/providers, organizations, and clients.
• Identify strategies to integrate telehealth as a tool to support and elevate patient outcomes.
• Explore barriers and facilitators to applying promising practices in their own settings.
