CEU’s consistent with the development of competencies in the evidence-based treatment of individuals with Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders.

The benefits of attending trainings, conferences, seminars, and workshops either locally, nationally, or internationally are unlimited. Just a few include receiving training alongside colleagues/friends, being awarded CEU’s, networking with other professionals, enjoying the camaraderie of people with common goals, and traveling to other locations for a combined vacation or visiting family. Yet, there may be times when attending trainings/conferences either in-state or nationally is not possible. This could pose a challenge from time to time for professionals seeking CEU’s.

OFFERING A SOLUTION:         …A Work In Progress

Develop on-line competency tests that simultaneously offer education on Co-Occurring Psychiatric and Substance Disorders and offer Continuing Education Units.  The textbook for the exams is THE BASICS, Second Edition.
