With the focus of substance use disorder treatment shifting to integrated care solutions, it is crucial for addiction professionals to explore valuable community partnerships to compliment services already offered. In this webinar, we will be reviewing the implementation of recovery-oriented systems of care, community needs assessments, and the development of relationships with others to treat individuals in a holistic manner. Participants will explore barriers to implementation with solution-focused goals. Finally, the webinar will discuss data on current integrated systems with community partnerships and their effect on the community as a whole.
