In 2019, NMBHPA was pleased to present:

Pathways to Treatment: A Webinar Series

Attention health and community workers! Are you interested in helping opioid users engage in treatment and be successful in recovery?

This series will focus on Opioid Services. The overarching theme of the webinar series, designed specifically for non-SUD behavioral health providers, is “Pathways to Treatment.” In recognition of the many paths an individual can take before seeking treatment, this training is based on the assumption that individuals are ready for treatment when they are ready. The behavioral health system and providers must be able to respond to appropriately when an individual is “ready.”

The four webinar training modules will provide practical information on creating an effective response.

These sessions are free. Watch them now!
