Training Overview Description

Description:

One of the biggest challenges in medication assisted treatment and recovery (MATR) settings is managing the volume and variety of patient need to counselor ratio. Often, patients with opioid use disorder (OUD) can benefit from additional support in care coordination and case management. Even when a patient has reached a phase of healthy maintenance, their care often slips during transition of care and referral management. A dedicated peer recovery support specialist (PRSS) can address this gap and many more patient needs. Lived experience can have tremendous value in MATR settings, but care coordination is an additional benefit to adding PRSS to the treatment and recovery workforce.

Learning Objectives

  • Participants will be able to describe the unique need OUD patients have in MATR settings that may often go unaddressed.

  • Participants will be able to identify five key value-adds that PRSS bring to office-based opioid treatment (OBOT) and opioid treatment programs (OTPs).

-Participants will be able to summarize how to fund, recruit, and incorporate PRSS in clinical treatment settings.
