A community of practice (CoP) convenes a group of individuals interested in a similar topic to share knowledge, information and experiences in an effort to learn more about a topic and to improve current practices. The Center is facilitating several networks to help professionals from a wide range of settings to develop a better understanding of substance misuse and how their work plays a role in helping to prevent, treat and support recovery.

Continuum of Care – For CoC Facilitators and BDAS staff to assist in their work in developing a comprehensive CoC in each of the 13 regional public health networks. By Invite only.

Medication Assisted Treatment – For healthcare providers and other practitioners in an effort to connect those interested in initiating or expanding medication assisted treatment (MAT) services with the opportunity to gain knowledge and information and share experiences with other MAT settings.

Peer Recovery Support Services – For Recovery Community Organizations, to connect those delivering peer recovery support services (PRSS) with the opportunity to gain knowledge and information and share experiences to develop quality PRSS services. By Invite only.

SUD Clinical Issues/ASAM – For clinicians and other providers, to connect those working with individuals who have substance use disorders with the opportunity to gain knowledge and information and share experiences related to determining appropriate level of care, individualizing treatment and reassessing patient care.

Substance Misuse Prevention – For Substance Misuse Prevention Coordinators and BDAS staff to assist in their work regarding substance misuse prevention across the lifespan in each of the 13 regional public health networks. By Invite only.
