Recovery to Practice is pleased to introduce the on-demand continuing medical education (CME) series.

Clinical Decision Support for Prescribers Treating Individuals With Co-Occurring Disorders

This two-course series offers information and resources for physicians, clinicians, and other practitioners serving individuals with serious mental illness and co-occurring substance use disorders.

In this scenario-based series, participants meet "Nick," a young father with many strengths who is challenged by both substance use and mental illness. The course explores the question: How do I approach Nick and help him meet his needs in ways that are both clinically sound and recovery focused?

The faculty are national experts in recovery, including psychiatrists, a psychologist, a social worker, a nurse, and peers. They offer tools, tips, and strategies for addressing Nick's needs and those of other individuals facing similar challenges.

Watch one or both courses at your convenience!
