Chemical Dependency Seminar

The Chemical Dependency Seminar is a weekly, community based, educational program targeting a variety of mental health and healthcare professionals who provide prevention, medical and psychosocial treatment to individuals with substance use disorders. Through in person, synchronistic and asynchronistic presentations best practices and evidence-based evaluation and treatment methods are presented. Additionally, the program provides basic education related to the biopsychosocial aspects of substance use disorders.

Program Professional Practice Gaps:

  1. Oklahomans experience a high rate of substance use disorders and co-occuring behavioral health and medical problems. 
  2. Oklahoma lacks a behavioral health and healthcare workforce that is adequately trained and equipped to evaluate and treat substance use disorders. 
  3. In Oklahoma the dissemination and implementation of best practices and evidence-based substance use disorder prevention and treatment strategies has lagged other areas of the country. 

Program Learning Objectives:

  1. Increase the rate behavioral health and healthcare providers implement best practices and evidence-based substance use disorder prevention and treatment strategies. 
  2. Increase the rate primary care providers identify substance use disorders in their practices. 
  3. Ensure behavioral health and healthcare providers understand the biopsychosocial nature of substance use disorders. 
  4. Stimulate education, practice, and workforce development in the field of substance use disorder prevention and treatment.
