Upcoming PCSS-MAT Webinar: “Hub and Spoke”: Vermont’s Framework for Medication Assisted Treatment for Opioid Addiction (APA)

February 5, 2016

Tuesday, February 9, 2016, 12:00 – 1:00 pm ET (9:00 – 10:00 PT)
Webinar description: Faced with increasing rates of opioid addiction and insufficient treatment capacity to meet demand for care, Vermont developed a novel framework to expand medication assisted treatment in both Opioid Treatment Programs (OTPs) and Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT) settings. Although this initiative initially focuses on medication assisted treatment for individuals with opioid use disorders, it creates a framework for integrating treatment services for other substance abuse issues and co-occurring mental health disorders into the medical home through a managed approach to care. In addition, this treatment approach will help reduce recidivism in corrections and enhance outcomes for families where addiction is an identified problem for child welfare.
