Publication Date: Aug 28, 2020


12:00 PM – 1:00 PM (PT) 

UCLA Integrated Substance Abuse Programs and the Pacific Southwest ATTC are partnering with Advocates for Human Potential to present the Sustainable Reimbursement of MAT Webinar Series.  The series is held once monthly from May-September 2020. Each month features a different topic.  
This month’s final webinar from this series Getting Paid: Management of Medi-Cal Reimbursable Recovery Support Services will explore the integration of peer recovery support services and the peer recovery specialist workforce into delivery of SUD services, with specific focus on supporting medication assisted recovery. It covers certification, training and supervision requirements for billable services and outlines options for including peer recovery support specialists in the pre-treatment, core treatment and aftercare continuum in ways that contribute to better outcomes and support engagement and retention in clinical care. 
Webinar slides, audio recordings, and resources from the series are available for download at

At the end of the webinar, participants will be able to: 

1.    Name at least 2 types of support peers offer that professionals generally cannot
2.    Describe the difference in lived experience among the following types of peer support specialists: mental health, medication assisted, and co-occurring disorder (COD) recovery
3.    Identify at least 2 reimbursement issues to consider when integrating peer recovery support services, specifically for individuals recovering from OUD
