Prioritizing Tobacco Treatment in Substance Use and Recovery Masterclass Workshop
Tobacco use among individuals with co-occurring substance use challenges often goes unaddressed, despite the impact of tobacco on long-term health outcomes. While tobacco cessation and treatment have been typically siloed from conversations on recovery, co-treatment can address tobacco-related disparities among individuals with substance use challenges and significantly improve long-term recovery outcomes.
Join the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control on Tuesday, Jan. 17, 2-4 p.m. ET, for a masterclass workshop to explore strategies for addressing barriers to integrating tobacco cessation and treatment into substance use treatment services.
This masterclass workshop will provide an opportunity to engage in real-time discussion with National Council Mental Wellbeing Senior Advisor Aaron Williams, MA, and Project Manager Hope Rothenberg.
By joining this masterclass, participants will:
- Increase their understanding of the importance of integrated treatment of co-occurring substance use challenges.
- Gain strategies to integrate tobacco cessation into substance use treatment.
- Discuss ways to support clients in long-term recovery.
