Contingency management is the evidence-based behavioral intervention associated with the most robust evidence for effectively treating individuals with a stimulant use disorder (StimUD). Contingency management provides monetary incentives (such as gift cards) for meeting treatment goals, including stimulant non-use as measured by negative point-of-care urine drug tests (UDTs), rewarding individuals for changing their behaviors. Substance use offers a powerful, immediate reinforcement. Contingency management confronts this challenge by offering immediate financial awards that can help activate the brain’s reward system, thus encouraging the replacement of stimulants with the incentive to achieve a dopamine release. This 90-minute webinar is designed to provide a broad overview of contingency management for treating individuals with a stimulant use disorder (StimUD). Ample time will be provided for group discussion and audience Q&A.   Learning Objectives: At the end of the course, participants will be able to: -Describe at least three (3) patterns and trends regarding the scope of stimulant use in the Western U.S. and beyond. -Identify at least three (3) acute and three (3) chronic effects of psychostimulant drugs on the brain. -Formulate a list of the four (4) essential elements of an evidence‐based, protocol‐driven contingency management program to address stimulant use. -Specify two (2) barriers to implementing contingency management and two (2) strategies to address the barriers.

Virtual service delivery in the substance use and mental health treatment fields is here to stay, according to Meurer-Lynn (2023) and other notable researchers (Aafies- van Doom, et al., 2023; Shore, 2021; etc.) As such, how to blend in-person and virtual service delivery becomes an important question. Hybrid service delivery is a mixture of in-person sessions with videoconferencing sessions and may include phone check-ins. Hybrid service delivery models are known for providing flexibility, especially to clients with access issues, such as clients living in rural areas or those with transportation issues. The exact combination of virtual and in-person sessions ratio is determined by the clinician and patient (Aafies- van Doom, et al., 2023). Recently, many clinics have started to leverage in-person and virtual (video and phone) sessions and negotiate with clients a schedule that will increase engagement and positively impact attendance and adherence to treatment (SAMHSA, 2021). This two-part webinar series will: Provide an overview of substance use clinical services delivered via videoconferencing and telephone Describe and give examples of hybrid service delivery that is based upon the needs of the client, clinician, and provider Illustrate what clinicians and administrators need to consider when initiating hybrid delivery services, like reimbursement, privacy/security issues, staffing, and telephone policies

In spring of 2023, Mountain Plains ATTC conducted a survey in an effort to better understand the training and technical assistance needs of individuals providing SUD treatment and recovery services in Region 8. The purpose of the survey was to determine providers’ perceptions, practices, and training/technical assistance needs, specifically in relation to harm reduction (HR) services/activities for SUDs. An invitation to participate in the survey was emailed posted on the Mountain Plains ATTC website and was sent to all constituents within Region 8 for which the Mountain Plains ATTC had email addresses. In addition, participants were asked to invite others within their agencies and networks to participate. The survey was completed between March 9 to April 12, 2023. Approval to conduct the survey was obtained from the University of North Dakota Institutional Review Board. Results from this survey will help Mountain Plains ATTC better collaborate with providers and stakeholders throughout the region in the development of new products, training materials, and technical assistance. It is also hoped that this report will provide readers with a snapshot of the perceptions, practices, and technical assistance/training needs of the SUD provider services workforce in Region 8.

The 2018 Farm Bill has led to the introduction of several types of psychoactive cannabis products in the U.S. market. This presentation explores the diverse range of products that have recently become available and discusses the associated public health concerns. We will delve into a series of interconnected studies that investigate the marketing of Delta-8 THC, as marketing elements (such as products, prices, promotion, and placement) greatly influence usage, especially among young people. Further, we will explore potential policy solutions that may help mitigate these risks.   Presenter: Matthew Rossheim, PhD, MPH, CPH

  Non-fatal and fatal overdoses are traumatic events that have been increasing over the past 20 years and disproportionately impacting rural communities in the United States (Winstanley, 2020). The human suffering caused by the opioid epidemic and ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic contribute to increased symptoms of compassion fatigue (burnout and secondary traumatic stress) among treatment and peer recovery support providers (Berry, 2021). These symptoms can impact the physical and mental well-being of providers and diminish the quality of care they deliver. This 2-part webinar series will take a deeper dive into compassion fatigue to focus on grief/loss, collective trauma, peer and professional worker loss; and self care.  Webinar Series Objectives Participants will: Learn the nature, scope of overdose death Distinguish the unique sequela of overdose grief and risks for complicated grief Learn basic self-care recovery maintenance in the presence of suffering Learn team support to address suffering   PRESENTER: Kathie Supiano, PhD, LCSW,FT, FGSA, APHSW-C Associate Professor, University of Utah College of Nursing, and Director, Caring Connections: A Hope and Comfort in Grief Program, University of Utah College of Nursing.

Typically for in-person service delivery, both clinicians and peer support specialists must possess skills to create an environment that is private, distraction-free, and encourages patients or peers to discuss/disclose information that is important to positively impacting treatment outcomes and/or recovery goals. The same requirements exist for services delivered virtually. Using technology to facilitate clinical or recovery support sessions requires clinicians and peer support specialists to simulate real-time experiences (Hilty, 2002) that promote a therapeutic alliance (treatment) or connection (peer support). However, virtual service delivery requires some careful modification of the clinicians’ or peer support specialists’ skills to ensure engagement occurs and positive working relationships are developed. This workshop will highlight how to develop a virtual presence that leads to building empathy, trust, and mutual respect.

Peer Supervision is a collaborative activity between a supervisor and a worker in which the supervisor provides guidance and support to the worker to promote competent and ethical delivery of services. Supervision also supports the continued development of the worker’s application of accepted professional peer work knowledge, skills and values. Supervision should be a priority for early-career peer workers and is an investment that benefits employees, employers and service recipients. It is important that supervision is accessible and happens (SAMHSA, BRSS-TACS, 2022).   This 2-part webinar series is based on the Peer Supervision Curriculum originally designed in 2018 to support individuals supervising Peer Recovery Support staff in the Commonwealth of Kentucky as one of their initial projects under the State Targeted Response funding from SAMHSA. In 2020, the curriculum was adapted by the Southeast Addiction Technology Transfer Center (ATTC) to expand the language in way that can be used for any state or ATTC Region and included an overall update as well as new content focused on telehealth, recovery planning, diversity, equity and inclusion.

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
