Join the St. Louis Regional Center of Excellence in Behavioral Health on February 11, from 1 until 3 p.m. (Central), for an online webinar, “Evidence-Based Substance Use Treatment,” featuring a keynote presentation by Robert J. Meyers, PhD.
Robert J. Meyers, PhD. will present on the general lack of Evidence Based Practices in substance use disorder treatment with a focus on CRAFT (Community Reinforcement Approach and Family Training) as an example of a well-established, but underutilized treatment. This example of CRAFT highlights the concern is not lack of EBPs but providers that are not readily adopting and funders that are not financially encouraging EBPs. Dr. Meyers will provide both an overview of the model and of the current data on outcomes and approaches to training staff in EBPs.
