Educational Approach

UMMC has been offering training in treatment of addictions for more than 30 years. With funding from NIH and SAMHSA, we have developed and evaluated curricula to promote implementation of evidence-based care for substance use disorders.

This educational infrastructure is also foundational for the CIDA. A major goal of CIDA’s educational and outreach efforts is addressing stigma—one of the most pervasive barriers to care and treatment of substance use disorders.
