Substance Use & Addiction

Recovery is a Long-Term, Ongoing Process

Today’s substance use treatment providers have multiple tools and treatment best practices at their disposal.

SOLUTIONS FOR SUD AND ADDICTION TREATMENT PROVIDERS

The SUD treatment profession is facing change with an increased focus on prescription drug use, an expansion of treatment modalities beyond traditional 12-step and abstinence-based care to medication-assisted treatment and others. We can help keep providers on top of best practices and current trends to achieve positive clinical outcomes and work effectively within the broader healthcare industry.

SUBSTANCE USE TREATMENT PROVIDERS FACE STRICTER REGULATIONS

Additional regulations and requirements for SUD providers make compliance more complex. Client safety and privacy protections are essential for effective treatment delivery.

Noncompliance Can Lead to Closure

Beyond HIPAA and legal/ethical issues, SUD providers have 42 CFR and regulations surrounding MAT and other treatment modalities, especially in residential settings.

Policy and Procedure Management

Staying on top of changing regulations includes a well-defined P&P process for creating, updating and distributing policies to staff. Communication is a must.

States are Mandating Accreditation

The current trend of state licensing boards requiring provider accreditation necessitates comprehensive tracking and reporting on mandates.

HIGH STAFF TURNOVER INTERFERES WITH LONG-TERM RECOVERY

The turnover rate for SUD counselors is estimated at 15-20%. The work is challenging, especially for SUD counselors in long-term recovery themselves. Supporting your staff keeps them around longer.

Create a Culture of Engagement

Organizational culture can impact turnover. By taking care of staff, supporting professional development and success, you reduce burnout and improve retention.

Clinical Supervision

Many addiction counselors have successfully completed recovery. Reducing staff turnover includes supporting staff recovery through quality supervision.

New Hire Training and Orientation

Set up your new staff for long-term success by helping them transition to a professional role with support and training on boundaries, treatment techniques and more.

THE PEER SUPPORT MOVEMENT BEGAN IN ADDICTION PROGRAMS

Peer recovery specialists are key to successful behavioral health programs, but they need specialized training in evidence based practices and proven methods to supplement their lived experience.

Great Managers Grow Great Employees

Skilled managers help merge lived experience with formal training. Maintaining fidelity to treatment models includes ongoing supervision and feedback.

Licensing and Continuing Education

State boards are increasingly mandating that SUD counselors become licensed clinicians, a current trend that is likely to spread. How do you provide CEUs to staff?

Multi-Disciplinary Treatment Teams

SUD treatment has moved beyond 12-step models; incorporating multiple practitioners, medications and treatment modalities. Give your staff tools to progress.

ADDICTION PROGRAMS ARE MOVING TO VALUE-BASED REIMBURSEMENT

Healthcare is shifting from fee-for-service to value-based care, and substance use providers are not exempt. The challenge is to implement evidence based practices, measure care and report outcomes.

Clinical Outcomes, Instead of Number of Services Delivered, are Defining Standards of Care

Behavioral health providers are shifting to outcome based performance evaluation, which necessitates use of best practices and measurement based care.

Community Partnerships

With outcome-driven care, successful providers have formal relationships with community organizations and ensure staff have the skills to communicate and coordinate.

Opioid Crisis Funding Opportunities

Providers have access to additional funds for prevention and treatment efforts. Your program and staff need the skills and tools to address opioid misuse.
