On-the-Spot (OtS) is an online opportunity for Mental Health, Substance Use Disorders, and Recovery Support Services providers to obtain real time input on a variety of behavioral health topics delivered by consultants. OtS is an open, one-hour forum guided by participants' questions with responses provided by consultants/faculty of the Mountain Plains ATTC. The goal of OtS is to serve as another tool to increase knowledge, build skills, and change practice through the adoption of evidence-based practices and promising practices.
