Access Education


Attendees will learn about the methodical issues that hinder researchers' abilities to enumerate addiction professionals in the behavioral health workforce. We will also outline the roles of addiction professionals in integrated care teams and identify other practice settings in which they deliver behavioral health services. Finally, we will define addiction professionals by level of license/certification and demonstrate scopes of practice variability across licenses/certification level and states.
