    USA
    401-228-7990

    This workshop will focus on learning the skills necessary to successfully identify and treat the growing number of clients that present with both a substance abuse disorder and also have a significant gambling problem. Experts believe that between 10% - 20% of individuals who have substance abuse problems also have moderate to severe gambling problems. Participants will learn how to identify those clients that may be at higher risk for developing a gambling problem who are currently being treated for a substance abuse disorder. Because of the rapid increase in the number of individuals developing gambling problems in this country, treatment professionals refer to these individuals as the "hidden population". These individuals most often do not get the treatment they need because substance abuse clinicians are not adequately trained to screen for gambling problems and do not know how to identify warning signs, risk factors, and behaviors that could be signals a developing problem with compulsive gambling. An individual's drug(s) of choice and particular personality style that may put put them at higher risk for gambling problems will also be discussed.

    Target Audience: Clinicians working in mental health and/or substance abuse settings

    A disabling illness can seriously affect a client’s sense of well-being and self image.

Clients unable to work due to a medical and/or mental health disability may qualify for Social Security benefits. This training will examine the Social Security application and appeals process, the difference between SSDI and SSI, benefits available to adults and children, the effect substance abuse has on a client’s case and importance of quality medical records with examples of appropriate documentation.

    America’s healthcare system is rapidly evolving and the boundaries of the traditional treatment system are blurring. Newly emerging integrated care models call for expanded interdisciplinary teams comprised of professionals, para-professionals, community health-workers, and peer advocates who may be employed by different organizations. Participating on these “virtual” treatment teams will require addictions and mental health professionals to reconcile historic interpretations of 42 CFR Part 2 with the role of technology, social media and ever-changing State and Federal regulations related to sharing of protected health information across organizations. This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the complex legal and ethical issues facing today’s behavioral health workforce as they adapt to these new models and learn to meet the mandates of HIPAA-II, the HITECH ACT, Meaningful Use Stage 2, and the Affordable Care Act.
