    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)


     Safe Surroundings NE Launches Innovative Training for Parents and Teachers

    High and Seek: Defend Our Youth, Empower
    Our Parents and Educate Our Educators. Early
    Detection of Teenage Risky Behavior.

    High and Seek is the first program to be launched by Safe Surroundings NE. This adult only event is designed to increase awareness, early detection and early intervention of teenage alcohol and drug use along with other risky behaviors.

    The highlight of the presentation is the staged teenage bedroom.
    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.
