Dual Diagnosis Treatment During COVID: Strategies to Support Patients and Staff During Difficult Times
June 24, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
The past year has brought many challenges to the substance use and co-occurring treatment industry. Treatment centers offering residential or PHP with housing dealt with issues ranging from quarantine protocols to staff shortages to redefining clinical programs. This session will feature Executive Leadership representing 3 treatment centers with a combined 65 years of experience in the field. Each CEO will discuss issues they faced in the prior year and the unique strategies created to overcome the difficulties associated with COVID. There will be discussions addressing general SUD and Dual-Diagnosis treatment as well as specific focus on treatment in military populations and for the LGBTQI population. There will be time for participants to comment or question speakers at the end of the session.
As behavioral health providers, we often face challenges stemming from the impact of the world around us. Our patients often have difficulty managing stress and struggle with change. COVID created a situation of isolation, anxiety and stress that kindled the fire of addiction in many of our patients. Whether you have a private practice, run a network of facilities, or something in between, this session offers the shared experience of industry leaders. They will reveal strategies that worked to support patients and staff and improve services during the most difficult of times.
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
- Identify major issues impacting patients, staff and ability to provide services in the subspecialty of their organization
- Review strategies implemented to overcome patient and service challenges
- Discuss strategies used to mitigate COVID stress in staff
