Substance Use Disorder Treatment for People with Physical and/or Cognitive Disabilities

Meeting Description:

People with physical and cognitive disabilities are more likely to have a substance use disorder and less likely to get effective treatment for it than those without such a coexisting disability (even though such accommodations are legally mandated). This webinar will explore ways that SUD treatment providers can address the barriers to treating people with disabilities including attitudinal barriers, discriminatory policies, practices, and procedures, communications barriers, and architectural barriers.

Educational Objectives:

After participating in this webinar participants should be able to:

  • Understand the legal history  and intent of the law for treating persons with SUD and co-existing mental or physical disabilities. 
  • Appreciate the prevalence of SUD in persons with cognitive and/or physical disabilities, as well as prevalence of co-existing disabilities in persons with SUD
  • Adapt substance use disorder screenings for SUD  clients who have a disability.
  • Describe ways that treatment can be modified to meet the particular needs of people with coexisting disabilities.
