Improving Treatment Outcomes for People with Cognitive Impairment


Studies show that 30 to 80% of people in need of substance use disorder (SUD) treatment have some level of cognitive impairment (CI). CI is an umbrella term used to describe a number of conditions, including intellectual and/or developmental disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, serious mental illness resulting in loss of cognitive functioning, and more. Due to the opioid epidemic, the number of people with CI caused by overdose is on the rise. Yet, many clinicians feel under-prepared to effectively treat people with SUD and CI. This two-hour training will increase the knowledge base across the SUD workforce in understanding CI, its impact on treatment outcomes, possible signs of CI in individuals with SUD, and techniques and strategies for the SUD treatment of individuals with CI.
