  • Webinar: What is ASAM Level of Care Certification?

    Contains 1 Component(s)

    In this free webinar, learn about the ASAM Level of Care certification and the pilot process that was used to ensure its validity.

    Webinar Overview

    This webinar provides an overview of ASAM Level of Care certification and the pilot process that was used to ensure its validity. ASAM Level of Care certification, delivered in partnership with CARF International, is the first program of its kind to independently assess and verify treatment programs’ ability to deliver services consistent with the levels of care described in The ASAM Criteria. It will initially cover adult residential programs at Levels 3.1, 3.5, and 3.7 of The ASAM Criteria. The certification demonstrates a program’s capacity to deliver a specific level of care, thereby differentiating between the many levels of care available for addiction treatment.

  • Up in Smoke: Igniting Recovery from Tobacco and e-Cigarettes (1.5 CME)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Earn 1.5 PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ while learning how to improve nicotine and tobacco research from this conference recording from The ASAM 50th Annual Conference (2019).

    1.5 CME In this conference recording from the 2019 Annual Conference, you will learn that:

    Historically, substance use disorder treatment centers have only offered limited-to-no treatment for tobacco dependence during their programs.  Over the last 30 years, significant gains have been made in behavioral management for tobacco dependence, FDA approval of 7 medications, development of outpatient and inpatient treatment protocols, and the establishment of tobacco-free hospitals and behavioral treatment centers.  In addition, tobacco price elasticity, increased public health knowledge of risks, restrictions in tobacco marketing, and clean, indoor-air laws have resulted in lower tobacco consumption in the general population.  However, these gains have not had enough impact to lower the rates of tobacco-related chronic health diseases in individuals with substance use disorders.  Tobacco use is the number one cause of death for people with alcoholism1 . Furthermore, there are potential threats to the advances already made, including the rapid acceptance of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) within the last 10 years and the decriminalization and/or legalization of recreational or medical of cannabis use in 30 states over the past two decades. The increasing awareness of tobacco-related, chronic disorders amongst both the public and medical professionals presents an opportune climate for improving the screening and treatment of tobacco dependence in patients receiving treatment for other addictions.  Four potential opportunities include:
     
    1) Dissemination of an increasing number of novel, evidenced-based protocols specifically for individuals with tobacco and co-occurring substance use disorders; 2)  Recognition by medical and behavioral health providers of patient satisfaction and improved outcomes when tobacco is addressed during addiction therapy; 3) Identification, training and collaboration of addiction specialists to advance this concept; and 4)  Awareness of the potential use of ENDS to intentionally deliver other drugs of abuse and need for education of patients and staff about impact of ENDS products on long-term recovery.   This workshop will offer best practices of current evidence-based protocols and provide tools for creating effective treatment options that can be applied in a variety of settings.  The participants will engage in small group, interactive exercises that will develop action plans for addressing tobacco-use disorders within their own treatment settings and on a national level.    Outline: Review important historical milestones in efforts to treat tobacco dependence in addiction settings Discuss potential threats for gains already made in the treatment of tobacco dependence over two decades Discuss potential opportunities and challenges to improve the treatment of tobacco dependence for recovering populations Each participant will be empowered to develop a personalized Strengths, Weakness, Opportunities and Threats (SWOT) analysis of their program during the workshop.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion, participant will be able to:

    Develop 3 novel and effective strategies for improving nicotine and tobacco treatment research, reimbursement, and service delivery.

During her internal medicine training, Dr. Karan repeatedly treated patients for the consequences of tobacco use.  She recognized that nicotine and tobacco use were often ignored during the treatment of other substance use disorders and that tobacco was the number one cause of death in recovering persons. 

    Dr. Karan guest-edited a seminal issue of the Journal of Substance Abuse Treatment entitled “Towards a Broader View of Recovery.”  These experiences set the foundation for Dr. Karan’s longstanding interest in in the similarities and differences between nicotine and other addictive drugs. Dr. Karan advocated for tobacco control, including befriending the Phillip Morris whistleblower scientists and putting forth stockholder’s proposals during  annual meetings of Phillip Morris, and RJ Reynolds. She received a NIDA Scientist Development Award where she researched the discriminative stimulus effects and neuroendocrine basis for the subjective effect of nicotine.

     Dr. Karan and John Rosecrans PhD co-chaired nine annual ASAM Nicotine Research Round tables and from this excitement originated the Society for Research on Nicotine and Tobacco. More recently Dr. Karan and Dr. Susan Blank authored the Nicotine and Tobacco chapter of the ASAM Criteria where they advocated for increased intensity of treatment for persons who had severe nicotine/tobacco use disorders, medical, and/or psychiatric co-morbidity. Dr. Karan was recruited to LLVAHCS by Dr. Linda Ferry, originator of Zyban.  Dr. Ferry and Dr. Karan continue to develop effective treatments for nicotine and tobacco use, especially in patients who have other substance use disorders. 1 Hurt RD et al.  “Mortality following inpatient addictions treatment.” JAMA 1996 Apr 10; 275(14):1097-1103.

  • Expanding Access to Buprenorphine for Justice-Involved Individuals via Mobile Treatment (1.5 CME)

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits

    Earn 1.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™ while learning how to expand access to MAT for justice-involved individuals from this conference recording from The ASAM 50th Annual Conference (2019).

    (1.5 CME) In this conference recording from the 2019 Annual Conference, you will learn that:

    Opioid use disorder (OUD) is highly prevalent among justice-involved individuals.  Despite evidence that increasing access to medications for addiction treatment (MAT) decreases fatal overdoses after release from prison and jail, many barriers to expanding treatment for this population remain.  Most interventions to date have focused on expanding access to MAT inside the criminal justice system, which can work well for those serving longer sentences in prisons, but the high turnover in jails and pre-trial detention centers is not always amenable to starting MAT inside jail. 
     
    In this interactive panel discussion, we will describe the development of Project Connections to Re-Entry (PCARE), a novel treatment model to expand access to buprenorphine for justice-involved individuals.  Started in November 2017, PCARE is part of a network of low-threshold buprenorphine treatment site run by Behavioral Health Leadership Institute (BHLI).  PCARE provides access to low threshold MAT through a mobile van parked directly outside the Baltimore City Jail in partnership with Maryland Department of Public Safety and Correctional Services. Patients are referred by jail staff or can walk in from the street. The clinical team includes an experienced primary care physician who prescribes buprenorphine, a nurse, and a peer recovery coach. Once stabilized, patients are transitioned to longer-term treatment programs or primary care for buprenorphine maintenance.

    Between November 2017 and July 2018, 249 people approached the van, 127 of whom began treatment with buprenorphine-naloxone.  The majority of patients (94.4%) had previous criminal justice involvement, were unemployed (72.4%) and were living with family or friends (41.7%). Of those who began treatment, 67.7% returned for a second visit or more, and 29% percent were still involved in treatment after 30 days. This focus session will begin with brief overview of current literature regarding access to MAT in criminal justice settings.  The interdisciplinary panel, composed of the program director (a lawyer) and physicians, will then describe the process of developing this program, client characteristics and initial outcomes, and implications for expansion to other treatment settings.

    The panel will discuss successes and challenges in partnering with detention center staff and engaging vulnerable populations in care.  After the panel discussion, the group will break into small groups to discuss ways of expanding access to buprenorphine in their own settings.  There will be time at end for Q+A.   Proposed Timeline (in minutes): 0:00 �" 0:10 Brief review of literature related to MAT in criminal justice setting and mobile      treatment models 0:10 �" 0:55 Panel discussion of PCARE low-threshold buprenorphine model 0:55 �" 1:10 Breakout into small groups to discuss expanding treatment in their own settings 1:10 �" 1:30 Questions and Answers/Session Evaluation

    Learning Objectives:

    1.)  Describe current literature on MAT for justice-involved populations.

    2.)  Describe a model of low threshold buprenorphine treatment for justice-involved individuals

    3.)  Identify ways to partner with criminal-justice settings and expand access to MAT for justice-involved individuals in their own geographic area
