The ATTC Network brings the addiction treatment and recovery services field a range of new publications, webinars, and training resources each week. This week, for example, brings you a new resource on integrating substance use disorder treatment with other health care, a webinar on teen use of e-cigarettes, vaping, and dipping, and easier access to ATTC bilingual resources.

Advancing Integration of Substance Use Disorder Services and Health Care

Integrating substance use disorder services with other health care remains a high priority in today's changing health care environment. The ATTC Network offers a range of tools and training expertise to facilitate efforts to integrate substance use disorder services with health care.   Building Capacity for Behavioral Health Services Within Primary Care and Medical Settings, the  second white paper in the ATTC Network's Advancing Integration white paper series, explores ways that organizations can build workforce capacity to treat patients in integrated care settings.

Webinar: Teen Smoking, Vaping, and Dipping: How Should Providers Respond? 

According to the latest Monitoring the Future 2015 Survey results, in 2015 e-cigarettes continued to have higher use among teens than traditional tobacco cigarettes or any other tobacco product. Find out what this means for treatment providers in the new webinar from the Build Up Your Teen Treatment IQ (TTIQ) project:
