Webinar Description: As we enhance our understanding of addiction medicine through research, we strive to improve the treatment outcomes for our patients. Substance Use Disorder (SUD) at its core requires an effective combination treatment because although medication is extremely beneficial in the treatment of addictions, for many patients it is not sufficient to maintain recovery because it does not address the behavioral aspects of the disease of addiction. This module provides basic information on 4 Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) that effectively treat the behavioral aspects of the disease of addiction. This module includes examples of techniques that may be performed during medication management and/or longer counseling visits with patients.  

Educational Objectives:

  • Identify 4 Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) for use to enhance SUD outcomes
    • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
    • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy
    • Motivational Interviewing
    • Twelve-Step Facilitation
  • Describe skills from each of the above EBPs that may be used in a variety of treatment settings
  • Demonstrate understanding of SUD mutual self-help groups
