These are obstacles that people face when seeking help for substance use disorders.  Each obstacle is a threat to recovery that can keep treatment dropout rates high and success rates low.

You can remove some of the biggest barriers to substance use treatment by offering telehealth as a treatment lifeline to clients fighting for their lives! 

This training will show you how you can provide effective, HIPAA-compliant substance use treatment via telehealth so you can expand accessibility, improve client retention and engagement, and provide a treatment space for those who feel uncomfortable coming to a physical office.
