2015 SBIRT Webinar Series Announced
“Did you know that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) includes substance use disorders as one of the ten elements of essential health benefits? This means that all health insurance sold on Health Insurance Exchanges or provided by Medicaid to certain newly eligible adults must include services for substance use disorders. It is assumed that some of these new patients may need intervention and treatment services for substance use disorders
To fill this service need, training about how to detect substance use disorders is imperative. As a part of this effort, NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, has partnered with National SBIRT ATTC NORC at the University of Chicago, The BIG Initiative, and SAMHSA to deliver a FREE 8-part webinar series called the 2015 SBIRT Webinar Series. All webinars are worth 1.5 CEs.”- National Association for Alcohol and Drug Abuse Counselors, 2015)

Attendees are encouraged to explore and interact with the display.
Through out the exhibit are items that may indicate a teen is involved
in high risk behavior such as underage drinking, substance
abuse, cutting, burning, eating disorders, sexual activity and
more. Attendees get an up close look at the items in the room
and are shown how they can be used. The presentation
reviews the latest drug and alcohol trends, an overview of
slang terms, psycho-education surrounding addiction and
includes an imperative discussion on techniques for
effectively communicating with teens. Participants will be
enlightened, educated and empowered.
