Training has two separate tracks, one for clinical staff and one for non-clinical staff.

The clinical training track is designed for staff such as licensed clinical social workers, registered nurses, physicians, physicians’ assistants, and therapists. These staff attend three consecutive days of training:

  • Two days dedicated to the neurobiology of addiction, pharmacology, treatment planning, and best practices
  • One day dedicated to motivational interviewing

The non-clinical training track is designed for staff such as peer specialists, case managers/monitors, and residential counselors. These staff attend two consecutive days of training:

  • One day dedicated to the prevalence, health risks and impacts of tobacco use, mental health comorbidities, and the role of peers
  • One day dedicated to motivational interviewing
What to Expect:

Training participants should come prepared for full, consecutive days of in-person training for at least 25 people. Continental breakfast is served each day of training, with additional time for breaks and lunch. At the end of training participants are asked to fill out a survey of the training experience, and obtain certificates for CME/CE credits earned.
