Understanding DSM-5-TR Changes Addressing Substance Use Disorders for the Helping Professional


Please Note: This training is focused on changes to the DSM-5-TR that address substance use disorders (SUD).



Participants will receive a 2-hour review of the changes specific to substance use disorders (SUD) that were made to the DSM-5-TR. This training will cover new clinical conditions, new diagnoses, and updated language that supports health equity and culturally appropriate service delivery. We will also discuss new coding procedures and what resources are available to help clinicians transition from using the DSM-5 to the DSM-5-TR. This training is for all levels but is especially important for providers who are new to diagnosing and/or those who haven’t yet reviewed the DSM-5-TR.

**Please bring your new DSM 5-TR or your quick guide to the training.**




  • Describe general changes to the DSM-5-TR including substance use diagnosis.
  • Discuss new clinical conditions and how to use the decision tree.
  • Identify updated inclusive language in the DSM-5-TR and how it supports health equity.




Registrants who fully attend this event or training will receive a certificate of attendance via email within two weeks after the event or training.
