Collaborative Care Model Substance Abuse Training

Collaborative Care Model Substance Abuse Training

Behavioral health integration model for the treatment of SUD & AUD

Collaborative Care Model Substance Use Disorders (SUD CoCM) is built upon the foundational training, CoCM: Base. This training is intended to assist primary care practice teams in managing patients with substance use (SUD) and alcohol use (AUD) disorders by:

  • Having an increased understanding of the prevalence and why it is important to include AUD/SUD management in primary care.
  • Reviewing of and use of the screening tools used to identify individuals with at risk or with dependence.
  • Having a care team member(s) (in particular, the BHCM) prepared to have a patient-centered objective and meaningful conversation when SUD/AUD risk are identified.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM) has contracted with Mi-CCSI to provide training and implementation to extend the Collaborative Care model to the treatment of SUD and AUD in primary care practices throughout the state of Michigan. Mi-CCSI would like to thank BCBSM for their attention, initiation and support of this important work.
