NICOTINE IN TREATMENT, WHAT’S THE BIG DEAL?
Spencer Baker, LCSW
The neglected epidemic, nicotine use in treatment. Is it really that big of a deal? Join this presentation and learn about the research, common myths, assessments, and nicotine replacement therapy for nicotine use and how to talk to clients.
After listening to these presenters, participants will be able to:
(1) Present the pro and con arguments of allowing nicotine use during treatment and the common myths and barriers associated with nicotine use during treatment; and,
(2) Translate these arguments and the corresponding research to policies in various levels of care, demonstrate monitoring and management needs, discuss provider buy-in to policies based upon science versus ‘marketing’ of their services, and cover Medicare and insurance standards in this area.
