Treatment & Recovery
We know that evidenced-based medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is part of the healing process, but how do you heal a broken spirit? In this session, participants will learn how faith-based providers are making a tangible difference in the delivery of MAT and recovery support. Through case studies of The Next Door, Inc., and Pennsylvania Adult & Teen Challenge (PAATC), presenters will demonstrate the value-added proposition of faith-based providers of evidence-based MAT along with recovery support services.
The Next Door provides services to women who are impacted by addiction, mental illness, trauma, and/or incarceration — providing an integrated model to address the co-occurring disorders. Their team of professional counselors, case managers, nurse practitioners (both medical and psychiatric), medical doctors, masters-level social work interns, mentors, and job coaches complete the staff to provide comprehensive coverage to residents’ needs.
PAATC is a residential, state-licensed, and CARF-accredited rehabilitation and treatment center for men and women (ages 18 and over) struggling with life-controlling addictions. As part of the growing program presence of Teen Challenge USA, Inc., PAATC is counted among the 208 centers in the United States. (Global Teen Challenge hosts an additional 960 centers overseas, as well as standing requests from 31 countries to open new centers.) By providing physical, as well as mental and emotional support services, PAATC focuses its efforts on its corporate vision of “bringing wholeness to the hopeless.”
This session is accredited for the following accreditation types: CME, CNE, CPE, APA, AAFP, AAHCPAD*, NAADAC*, ASWB*
