Beginning in February 2020, SATTC will host "Ask the Expert" the 2nd Tuesday of every month on topics surrounding Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), co-occurring diseases, health disparities, and more. Experts in the field will share the latest knowledge and answer questions from our community.

As professionals and practitioners move beyond webinars and training to more Intensive Technical Assistance (TA) needs, Ask the Expert becomes an infinite space to ask questions and increase your knowledge on some of the most popular and buzzing topics in the behavioral health and SUD fields.

  • To increase the knowledge capacity surrounding SUDs/OUDs

  • To increase the awareness of emerging SUD hot topics and provide expert-level knowledge on myths surrounding many of them.
