OVERVIEW

Professionals from healthcare and behavioral healthcare organizations and other systems of care in central Ohio who provide services to people with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders are invited to attend the next regional meeting for integrated treatment. This peer-networking opportunity is designed to encourage professionals from multiple disciplines, service settings, and systems of care (see "Who Should Attend" section below) to share challenges, solutions, and lessons learned while implementing evidence-based practices, best practices, emerging practices, and other service strategies for people with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders. Examples include the following:

  • Integrated Dual Disorder Treatment (IDDT)
  • Assertive Community Treatment (ACT)
  • Dual Diagnosis Capability in Addiction Treatment (DDCAT)
  • Dual Diagnosis Capability in Mental Health Treatment (DDCMHT)
  • Tobacco Recovery Across the Continuum (TRAC)
  • Motivational Interviewing (MI)

For more information about each of these, consult the "Practices" section of our website (click here).

This event is sponsored by the Center for Evidence-Based Practices at Case Western Reserve University—and its Ohio Substance Abuse and Mental Illness Coordinating Center of Excellence (Ohio SAMI CCOE). It is hosted by a partnering organization in the community (see "Location" tab on this page).

MEETING GOALS

Regional meetings are structured to achieve a number of goals:

  • Improve quality of life and other outcomes for people with mental illness or co-occurring mental illness and substance use disorders (e.g., addiction to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs)
  • Foster interest in developing evidence-based practices, best practices, emerging practices, and other service strategies and innovations
  • Provide face-to-face contact and, thus, facilitate relationships among professionals from different disciplines and systems of care who might not otherwise interact
  • Create a network of stakeholders who can help identify and eliminate barriers to the implementation of successful services
  • Identify solutions and best practices for implementing practices with fidelity

LOCAL KNOWLEDGE

The Center for Evidence-Based Practices sponsors regional meetings because each region in Ohio tends to face a unique set of social, economic, and political challenges, which often serve as facilitators and barriers to the implementation of evidence-based practices and other service strategies and innovations. The regional meetings are frequently attended by individuals from organizations who have different levels of experience with implementation. Therefore, the meetings help maximizes efficiencies and outcomes, because participants help each other avoid mistakes that have already been made and replicate strategies that are getting results.
