Substance-Use Treatment: An Evidence-based Approach
May 1, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join us for Substance Use Treatment: An Evidence-based Approach. During this event, we will hear about Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), Prolonged Exposure(PE) for PTSD, Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), and how these evidence-based practices (EBPs) are used to help individuals address substance-use disorders. We will hear about these EBPs from the perspective of EBP-specific trainers, clinicians, and Community Behavioral Health members who have personally received these services.
