    Category: Combined Behavioral Trainings*Trg r/s from 6/7/16* Understanding and Applying 42 CFR Part 2, HIPAA and Other Relevant Confidentiality Statutes in an Era of Healthcare Reform

    SUMHLC (formerly known as DATA of RI)
    200 Metro Center Blvd, Unit 10
    Warwick, RI 02886
    401.521.5759

    This one-day workshop will provide participants with a comprehensive overview of 42 CFR Part 2, with a special focus on the legal and ethical reconciliation of this law with HIPAA, the Affordable Care Act, and other relevant State and Federal statutes and reporting/ data sharing mandates. This workshop will also include a discussion of the implications likely to flow from full implementation of the 42 CFR Part 2 Rule Revision proposed by the United States Department of Human Services in March 2016.

    America’s healthcare system is rapidly evolving and the boundaries of the traditional treatment system are blurring. In keeping with the mandates of the Affordable Care Act and emerging best-practice standards, the integration of behavioral health and primary care is quickly becoming the norm across the country. In Rhode Island and nearby Massachusetts and Connecticut, addiction treatment specialists, mental health counselors, social workers and psychologists now routinely provide care as part of an interdisciplinary team. Depending on the setting and modality of care, these interdisciplinary teams may also include physicians, nurses, community health-workers, peer and recovery support specialists, and many other allied health and wellness professionals. Participation on these teams also requires the reconciliation of historic interpretations of 42 CFR Part 2 and HIPAA with population health approaches; which by definition rely upon the sharing of protected health information between providers and across organizations. Through a variety of interactive group exercises, workshop participants will explore the complex ethical, legal and moral issues facing today’s behavioral health workforce as it adapts to these new models of care.

    Substance Use Disorders (SUD) are primary, chronic, progressive, incurable and potentially fatal diseases that are most successfully treated with family involvement and/or leverage to ensure long-term treatment and compliance. The major symptom of the illness is that the addict denies that he/she has the illness. Denial is an unconscious process unknown to the addict. The denial of the family is usually greater re their need for their own treatment in order to deal with usually long histories of worry, anxiety, depression, enabling, etc. Successful SUD treatment is similar and analogous to the chronic disease management of diabetes. Methadone and Buprenorphine are increasingly seen as the initial and only available treatment response to opiate abuse rather than just another clinical intervention that is available to patients when criteria for their use is met. Effective treatment and recovery include salient medical, biophysical, psychological, psychiatric, social and spiritual aspects of the addict.

    Part Two (10am 11am) - Designer Drugs, Substance Use Disorders & Treatment (co-sponsored by American Addiction Centers)

    A designer drug is a structural or functional equivalent of a controlled substance that has been designed to mimic the pharmacological effects of the original drug. Some designer drugs were originally synthesized by academic or industrial researchers in an effort to discover more potent derivatives with fewer side effects. Illicit labs around the world are in the business of manufacturing and distributing these drugs and their own versions. With increasing pharmacological expertise drugs are being produced to avoid being classified as illegal and to avoid detection in standard drug tests. Synthetic designer drugs are readily available online and are now drugs of abuse. With increasing frequency, patients with serious medical and psychiatric complications related to the use of "bath salts", synthetic cannabinoids, “Molly” etc. are presenting in emergency rooms and treatment centers. Their use needs to be understood in the context of traditional Substance Use Disorder treatment and recovery with special attention focused on initial clinical interventions.

    Physicians, attorneys, airline pilots, etc. in professional monitoring programs are staying sober at rates 4 to 5 times higher when compared to “civilian” outcomes in Substance Use Disorder treatment. We know what works. Healthcare professionals and other professionals with a significant responsibility to the public have been given a special classification of “safety-sensitive workers” in the new American Society of Addiction Medicine (ASAM) criteria. Many factors place a burden on treatment, its efficacy, and the importance of that patient's recovery for overall public welfare. These factors color decisions that are made regarding the type, intensity, and setting of treatment provided to this special population. The treatment that the general public population receives is sorely lacking when compared to this “special” population. This presentation will address the Author’s belief that many of the elements of the aggressive treatment and monitoring that “safety-sensitive workers” undergo would dramatically increase positive outcomes if applied to the general public with Substance Use Disorders.

    Part Two (10am-11am) - Substance Use Disorder Intervention (co-sponsored by American Addiction Centers)

    If all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail. This presentation will address how every patient and their family situation is different and necessitates "a made to order" clinical approach. When it comes to intervention, treatment and retention one size does not fit all. The uniqueness of a family's situation demands ongoing flexibility and the savvy clinician should have several clinical strategies and philosophies at their disposal in order to be effective.
