UTC 41: Clinical Care for Women with Substance Use Disorders

This 5-day foundational course examines the core competencies needed to treat women as well as what makes women unique—as compared to men—in their illness trajectory, including substance use initiation, use, treatment and recovery. It addresses basic theories and concepts that underpin substance use disorder treatment with women and legal and ethical issues that providers often face when treating women for substance use disorders. The course will help participants to identify substance use disorders among women and how to create and implement comprehensive assessment and individualized care plans for women with substance use disorders. The latter modules discuss key components of a comprehensive substance use disorder treatment program for women, evidence-based approaches to caring for women with co-occurring disorders, and how to provide case management for women.
