The Telehealth EBP Video Demonstration series intends to show how a diverse set of clinical practitioners make use of evidenced based practices (EBP) in a telehealth environment. The impetus for these videos came from a provider survey and our organization partners who identified “Clinical Demonstration” as a needed product, especially with the recent pivot toward telehealth. The demonstrations follow a client, Shawn, through a course of substance use disorder care, starting with a crisis, admission to IOP treatment, and a recurrence of use in outpatient treatment, and ending with connecting to a recovery coach for long term planning. Each video will demonstrate an evidence based practice used at different points in the client’s care. Produced by the Northwest ATTC (SAMHSA grant no. TI080201), in co-sponsorship with the Behavioral Health Institute. We thank the Pacific Southwest ATTC for conceptual contributions to the development of this client character and clinical scenario, and Marcos Sauri, Michael Braxton, Michelle Peavy, and Dana Francis for their contributions to the production of this series.

According to the 2019 National Survey on Drug Use and Health, almost 10% of people aged 12 or older in Region 8 (Colorado, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming) had a substance use disorder in the past year, which is higher than the national average. In addition, data from this survey show that 403,000 people in the Region had an illicit drug use disorder, with stimulants, opioids, and cannabis named as three of the major illicit drugs used. Certainly, stimulant use (especially methamphetamine) rates are increasing nationally as well as in Region 8. A recent study by Jones, Compton, and Mustaquim (2020) found that 1.6 million adults (over 18) reported past-year use of methamphetamine; over a quarter reported using methamphetamine on more than 200 days; over half had a methamphetamine use disorder; and over 1/5 had injected methamphetamine. In response to these stimulant use trends, representatives from the regional Addiction Technology Transfer Centers (ATTCs), led by the ATTC Network Coordinating Office, created a day-long curriculum titled <i> Stimulants and their Impact on Brain and Behavior: Best Practices and Approaches for Effective Treatment and Recovery. Due to the Public Health Emergency (PHE), this day-long curriculum was re-packaged into a three-part webinar series by the ATTC Stimulant Workgroup. The MPATTC is pleased to sponsor the following events:   • Part 1: Stimulants: What Are They and Who Uses Them?, March 9, 2021 • Part 2: Impact of Stimulant Use on the Brain and Body, March 16, 2021 • Part 3: Effective Treatment Approaches and Recovery Supports, March 23, 2021

A common approach in learning any complex skill is to work with experts assisting in the development of competencies. Coaches observe practice in vivo and provide prompt feedback in a safe environment to guide practitioners to enhance fidelity to the model and retain skill levels in Motivational Interviewing (Miller & Moyers, 2021). The Mountain Plains, in collaboration with Motivational Interviewing (MI) subject matter experts, developed this opportunity to enhance practitioners’ skills and confidence in providing motivational strategies through individualized coaching. Coaching in specific MI approaches will be available to training participants following completion of a foundational MI course and a 9-week MI-Into Practice Enhanced Professional Learning Series. Basic MI concepts and skills to resolve ambivalence and conduct intentional conversations about change will be featured. This series of coaching is intended to help build confidence and practical MI knowledge and skills to support and address the behavioral factors impacting client change. Participants that have met the pre-requisites noted above will be invited to participate in 3 coaching sessions and will complete a pre- assessment to determine individualized coaching topics. Most sessions are individual. However, participants can be grouped in pairs or trios for effective interaction if preferred.    *Pre-requisites required

As work with clients/patients continues to evolve with insurers and the public, efforts have focused on increasing the emphasis on provider utilization of “best-practices” for the treatment of individuals with a substance use disorder as well as those who are dually diagnosed. While many best-practices continue to guide the work of behavioral health professionals and peer recovery support specialists, the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) has significantly altered how treatment services are delivered with impacts on both the individuals served and the professionals collectively trying to achieve a new rhythm to their practice.   During this session, there will be an examination of (1) evolving best-practices that demonstrate recovery support services during the PHE; (2) how behavioral health professionals and peer recovery support specialists can develop best-practices for future PHEs; and, (3) next steps in addressing recovery supports during a pandemic.   Presenter: Timothy Legg Ph.D., Psy.D., M.S.N., M.P.A., M.Sc., M.A.C., P.M.H.N.P.-B.C. is board-certified as both a geriatric and psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner and is also a licensed psychologist.

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).
