Course Description: Although behavioral health services are considered an essential healthcare benefit, access to services is often hindered, especially in frontier and rural areas. One approach to bridging this gap has emerged as a result of advances in technology and increased availability of and access to the Internet. Using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services, including substance use disorders treatment and recovery support, is impacting how behavioral health professionals deliver treatment services and what constitutes typical standards of care. However, these growing trends towards using technology-based interventions to deliver behavioral health services raises specific practice concerns that agency administrators and staff need to take into consideration. This two-part training series will first introduce technology-based interventions related to substance use disorders and then dig deeper into ethical considerations for professionals in the behavioral health field.
