NEW Member Benefit: NAADAC Partners with Telebehavioral Health Institute to Offer Discounted Telehealth Education & Resources
NAADAC is excited to announce it strategic partnership with the Telebehavioral Health Institute (THBI), an institute devoted to training and consultation with professionals seeking to develop the legal, ethical, and clinical competencies related to working in telebehavioral health. TBHI was founded by Dr. Marlene Maheu, a pioneer in the field of telebehavioral health.
NAADAC members will get a 20% discount on telehealth training and certification to help them expand into telehealth in an informed, ethical, and legal way. The discount links can be found in the NAADAC Members Portal.
Cynthia Moreno Tuohy, BSW, NCAC II, CDC III, SAP, NAADAC Executive Director, says, "NAADAC believes telehealth shows a lot of promise for providing services that cover addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery for rural and underserved areas and will become increasingly important as we deal with future addiction workforce shortages. Dr. Maheu has incredible influence, passion, leadership, and knowledge about telebehavioral health, and we trust that she and TBHI can provide our members with best practices to expand into telehealth and better serve their clients”.
National Addiction Professionals Day, started by NAADAC, was established to commemorate the hard work that addiction professionals do on a daily basis.
As a part of the celebration, NAADAC will announce its 2018 Award Winners tomorrow to honor their hard work and dedication to the addiction profession!
What are you doing tomorrow to celebrate? Whether you're holding a own local event to celebrate the powerful work that addiction services professionals do, or commemorating the day in another way, we want to hear from you! Send information about your event to Kristin Hamilton at email@example.com.
Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018 Passed the U.S. Senate
Because of YOUR activism and YOUR voice, the Senate passed the Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018. Thank you for your calls, emails, and messages to your Senators. Your activism and efforts to support the addiction workforce and those it serves are appreciated!
The Opioid Crisis Response Act of 2018 resulted from more than 70 proposals recommended to the Senate by members of five different committees. The House passed its version of the bill in June. The Senate and the House expect to work out the differences in their two bills by Friday, so that the chambers can vote on a final bill in the next two weeks. We need your continued voice and your continued activism to make this bill become a law!
