A 6-hour training with Dr. Scott Methe
December 1, 2023
PRESENTATION: Although the substance use treatment field has grown in its use of evidence-based practice, clinics across the country continue to expose clients to programs and practices that have not been shown to work. Exposing clients to dubious or contraindicated clinical practices not only increases relapse risk, but can also introduce ethical and practical problems. This is especially concerning given the growing availability of evidence-based practices for people struggling with substance addiction. In this workshop, participants will develop a critical and creative framework for evaluating and building the evidence base.
Upon completion of this training, participants will be able to:
- List a range of current SUD treatment approaches;
- Differentiate among clinical practices on the basis of their evidentiary quality;
- Identify at least 2 problems that emerge when using programs of low evidentiary quality; and
- Explain how to incorporate scientifically validated practices using the “adopt or adapt” model;
