Mental Health: Care and Services to Address Substance Abuse & Addictions
June 25
2:00 pm - 3:30 pm EST
CE for NHA, Nurses, CEHCH, CEAL, Social Work

As our nation continues to battle the growing issues of substance abuse and opioid addiction, long-term care facilities are facing similar challenges. The population of residents being admitted on one or more pain medications known to be addicting is growing, making the development of focused approaches to the management of chronic pain essential to every facility. Considering the liberalization of laws concerning marijuana and contemporary social views on alcohol consumption, a proactive approach is necessary to meet the needs of a new generation. In this session, strategies for establishing liaisons with community-based addiction counseling and support services and developing wellness protocols in anticipation of the needs of those challenged by addiction are the central focus.

Objectives: At the conclusion of this series, the participant will be able to:

1. Explain the care needs and accommodations for residents impacted by Substance Abuse or other Addiction.
2. Explain the importance of understanding the symptoms and challenges associated with Substance Abuse or other Addiction:
3. Develop improved methods for the assessment and person-centered care planning for residents with behavioral health needs:
