Today's Webinar: Neurocounseling: Bridging the Recovery Gap
Wed, November 8, 2017 @ 3:00 - 4:00 pm ET (2 CT/1 MT/12 PT)
Presented by Christine Chasek, Ph.D., LIMHP, LADC, MAC, LPC, this webinar will cover the basics of neurocounseling and highlight two interventions that addiction counselors can use in their practice. Neurocounseling is a relatively new approach in addiction treatment that has been shown to be effective for a variety of addiction-related issues including recovery management and relapse prevention. Addiction counselors can help clients bridge the gap between brain and behavior by becoming “brain-wise” and using neurocounseling interventions that target recovery and relapse prevention.
The new report delves further into the high turnover rates reported in the 2012, which add to provider training and recruitment costs and potentially threaten the quality of care received by clients entering SUD treatment, and examines recruitment and retention methods.
With this new policy, CMS’s main goal is to improve access to treatment by requiring less upfront administrative process barriers for approvals of state initiatives. This is a significant step to help states address the immediate treatment needs of individuals and families as well as providers that are on ground zero of the opioid crisis.
