Abstract

This paper presents a rationale for the use of a distance education approach in the clinical training of community substance abuse treatment providers. Developing and testing new approaches to the clinical training and supervision of providers is important in the substance abuse treatment field where new information is always available. A cognitive-behavioral approach, combined with on-site coaching, can be used to increase providers’ competency and adherence to research-based behavioral treatments for drug abuse, and includes HIV/AIDS counselor training for drug treatment providers.
