Tele-behavioral health and other technology-based treatment and recovery supports can assist primary care safety net providers and addiction treatment providers in expanding their efforts, particularly in rural areas where workforce, resources and people are scarce. Join this webinar, co-hosted by the SAMHSA-HRSA Center for Integrated Health Solutions and the American Telemedicine Association, to explore a variety of the latest technology-based interventions for delivery of addictions treatment and recovery services in safety-net settings. Bring your questions for provider and tele-health expert presenters and be ready to discuss challenges to implementation and the opportunities and key policy developments for using technology-based interventions in safety-net settings to expand workforce capacity.
