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

Learn more about the core competencies needed for clinical staff to practice effectively in the coming decade.
Additional regulations and requirements for SUD providers make compliance more complex. Client safety and privacy protections are essential for effective treatment delivery.
Beyond HIPAA and legal/ethical issues, SUD providers have 42 CFR and regulations surrounding MAT and other treatment modalities, especially in residential settings.
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.
The current trend of state licensing boards requiring provider accreditation necessitates comprehensive tracking and reporting on mandates.
Managing Regulatory and Clinical Training Needs
Learn how Odyssey House meets requirements from multiple regulatory bodies.
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.
Organizational culture can impact turnover. By taking care of staff, supporting professional development and success, you reduce burnout and improve retention.
Many addiction counselors have successfully completed recovery. Reducing staff turnover includes supporting staff recovery through quality supervision.
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.
Ensuring Staff Competence in Addressing SUDs
Six tips to help managers identify staff readiness and effectively treat substance use disorders.
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.
Skilled managers help merge lived experience with formal training. Maintaining fidelity to treatment models includes ongoing supervision and feedback.
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?
SUD treatment has moved beyond 12-step models; incorporating multiple practitioners, medications and treatment modalities. Give your staff tools to progress.
Integrated-Care and Care Coordination in a Value-Based World
The role of care coordination in improving health outcomes and lowering costs.
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.
Behavioral health providers are shifting to outcome based performance evaluation, which necessitates use of best practices and measurement based care.
With outcome-driven care, successful providers have formal relationships with community organizations and ensure staff have the skills to communicate and coordinate.
Providers have access to additional funds for prevention and treatment efforts. Your program and staff need the skills and tools to address opioid misuse.
