Telehealth EBP & MOUD Video Demonstrations

Provider talking to client on videoFor addiction workforce members considering the integration of new therapeutic methods into their daily practice, clinical demonstrations provide models for one’s own future behavior. With the continuing transition to use of telehealth, demonstrations specific to how useful treatment and recovery practices can be delivered via telehealth modality may be similarly useful to those in the addiction workforce who are navigating this terrain.

The Northwest ATTC has developed two sets of video demonstrations and accompanying resources, focused on telehealth delivery of Evidence-Based Practices (EBPs) and Medications for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD), to serve as a useful support to your efforts to adopt new practices and apply them in telehealth contexts.

Curriculum: Staying in Touch: Using Caring Contacts to Sustain Connection with Your Clients

Staying in TouchThis new online curriculum from the Northwest ATTC describes a low-threshold, Caring Contacts intervention designed to help providers reduce client self-harm, increase feelings of self-efficacy, and fill treatment gaps due to health disparities or other challenges.

Caring Contact is a personalized written form of practitioner outreach to individual clients that expresses care and concern for their wellbeing. This simple, customizable intervention can be implemented at a distance during times of stress and isolation, making it a particularly useful addition to telehealth practices.

Telehealth survey logoSubstance Use Disorder (SUD) Telehealth Survey Results

Several ATTCs joined together to conduct the COVID-19 Substance Use Disorder (SUD) Telehealth Response and Sustainability Assessment, a survey and research study focused on the use of virtual behavioral health services during the pandemic. The survey examined the use of telehealth services across participating agencies, identified benefits and drawbacks of using telehealth services within these agencies, and determined projected engagement in telehealth services post-pandemic.

The results of this survey are now available! Find out if our results reflect your experience!
