The purpose of this introductory training is to provide HIV clinicians (including, but not limited to physicians, dentists, nurses, and other allied medical staff, therapists and social workers, and counselors, specialists, and case managers) with an overview of the challenges and strategies for change in working with individuals with HIV/AIDS and a diagnosis of an opioid use disorder. Given the potentially broad array of health disciplines, this presentation uses the terms “patient” and “client” interchangeably to refer to the individuals a training participant may be working with in their organization. The duration of the training is approximately 180 minutes (3 hours), depending on whether the trainer chooses to present all of the slides, or a selection of slides, and whether the trainer chooses to present and discuss both case studies.   The training package includes a 90-minute PowerPoint presentation (abridged curriculum), a 3-hour PowerPoint presentation (full curriculum), a fully articulated trainer guide for the full curriculum, and a two-page fact sheet. All of the training package components are 508 compliant.

The Mountain Plains and Pacific Southwest ATTCs are pleased to offer a two-part recording focused on recovery support services as it relates to People With Stimulant Use Disorders (PWSUDs). In both recordings, a review of the current research is highlighted along with people with lived experience in stimulant use and recovery discussing the findings and relating it to their own experiences. The three panelists with lived experience, all currently work at well-established recovery community organizations (RCOs), one in Colorado- Advocates for Recovery and one in Utah- Utah Support Advocates for Recovery Awareness.  In Part 1 recovery support (e.g. definition of recovery, recovery capital, recovery benchmarks, etc.) and stimulant use (e.g., prevalence of use, impact on the brain, and craving) is discussed. While the Part 2 recording is focused on treatment and recovery services (e.g., treatment services, barriers to recovery, managing triggers and return to use, cessation triggers, 12 Step involvement, exercise, and involvement with RCOs). The overall goal of this two-part recording is to provide participants with a review of the latest science regarding stimulants within the context of people with lived experience highlighting the lessons learned from their recovery. Finally, promoting hope, community, and engagement as central/essential pieces to recovery from stimulant use disorders is a theme in both recordings with the panelists reinforcing that recovery is achievable for PWSUDs.   Recovery Support with Stimulant Use Disorders Part 1   Recovery Support with Stimulant Use Disorders Part 2

Harm reduction is any action that reduces risk and increases personal and public safety. Harm reduction approaches have proven to prevent death, injury, disease, overdose, prevent substance misuse or disorder and most of us practice harm reduction techniques daily. For example, when we wear a seatbelt or apply sunscreen we are using harm reduction strategies.  Fentanyl strips, naloxone, and needle exchange programs are also examples of harm reduction.  This poster identifies some of the most common harm reduction methods in an attempt to normalize the term "harm reduction" and broaden the definition.   The Spanish translations were prepared by consultants for the Mountain Plains ATTC. While reasonable efforts are made to provide accurate translations, acknowledging the diversity of Spanish and English Language, some words/phrases may differ.   The poster can be downloaded in multiple formats directly from the MPATTC website. This product was designed for display as an 11x17 sized poster in a location most visible and accessible to behavioral health providers, educators, and/or peer recovery specialists but is also available in an 8.5x11 format for in-house printing. In addition, hard copies may be requested from the MPATTC by emailing us at [email protected] (posters can be mailed within the continental United States).

Presenters: Christina Love and Jess Wojcik May 2022 As many people know, the professional identity of peer staff is rooted in their lived experience and deep connection to personal vulnerabilities. What is not often talked about or addressed are the imbalances that many peers face in the workforce. The majority of peers work alongside and are supervised by clinicians and other professionals who may not have the ability to disclose their lived experience, or who do not identify as having lived experience. Often, these imbalances can lead to unclear job descriptions, miscommunication, siloing of services, and replication of the harm many peers have experienced in navigating systems of care. During this one hour webinar, Christina Love and Jess Wojcik provided a 30,000 foot overview of an upcoming training on supervision of peer based recovery support services and a primer for helping attendees move toward organizational transformation and healing through supportive relationships and supervisory practices.

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).
