Carol Ball, MSW, Patient Navigator, attended the Kentucky School of Alcohol and Other Drugs conference in Louisville July 17 – 21, 2016. Along with traditional substance abuse treatment workshops, 18 workshops focused on Prevention, Behavioral Health, Integration, and Engaging Adolescents. These particular focus areas support the complex needs and emerging trends that service providers are seeing in their work across communities in Kentucky.
The number of P.A.C.T. patients with substance use disorder has increased. As a result of this training, Carol hopes to better meet the needs of this patient population.
