The Willow and the Oak: New Twists on Ancient Arts in Recovery Treatment
Location: Moana Nursery, 1100 West Moana Lane, Reno, NV 89509
2/28/2020

The mental health and addiction (MHA) treatment field is starting to acknowledge the ways in which some ancient healing arts can be helpful to their clients. For example, mindfulness and yoga, pillars of the mind-body-spirit orientation to health, are now frequently incorporated into recovery practices. Self-help orientations are broadening to incorporate Refuge Recovery and Wellbriety along with the more traditional 12-step type meetings. As clients seek enhanced pathways to sustaining their recovery it is critical that MHA practitioners understand, refer, and be trained in how to utilize appropriate alternative activities and therapies. Moderated by two of Northern Nevada’s ancient art proponents, guest teachers who specialize in various complementary treatments will introduce tools and practices that can augment traditional strategies. With Yoga, Mindfulness, and Energy Medicine as the core foundation, the workshop will include opportunities to better understand such treatments as Reiki, Functional Neurology, CMS, Neurofeedback, Acupuncture, Matrix Reimprinting, IBP, IFS, EMDR, and more. The workshop will also highlight EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and MBRP (Mindfulness-based Recovery Protection,) and emphasize the importance of incorporating these additional treatments within a trauma-infused approach when assisting clients in their long-term wellbeing.

Improving MAT Access and Quality Through Collaborative Care: The CoOp Model
Location: Online
Anytime

Medication assisted treatments (MAT) enhance opioid use disorder treatment efficacy, yet remain underutilized. Opioid treatment programs (OTPs) can now dispense buprenorphine or naltrexone as well as methadone. Collaboration between OTPs and office-based buprenorphine (OBB) prescribers constitutes a cohesive model providing access to comprehensive services, and encouraging MAT prescribing. During this webinar Dr. Stoller will focus on a model of care he coined “Collaborative Opioid Prescribing (CoOP),” linking OTP expertise with OBB prescribers. The OTP provides assessment, buprenorphine induction, and counseling, while OBB physicians provide ongoing buprenorphine prescribing and somatic or psychiatric care. An adaptive stepped care model adjusts counseling intensity and medication parameters (OBB prescription vs. OTP dispensing; duration of prescriptions). Supporting OBB providers in this manner may encourage MAT provision and access, while concurrently improving treatment outcome. Providing a broad spectrum of medical, social, and recovery services through coordinated care can enhance health outcomes and address unmet patient needs.
