About the Course:
This article describes the efforts by The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), Center for Substance Abuse Treatment (CSAT) in building substance abuse treatment capacity using E-therapy for hard-to-reach and traditionally underserved populations. SAMHSA/CSAT assembled expert researchers and service providers from across the United States and Canada to discuss the most commonly used forms of electronically delivered services and their potential efficacy with a variety of substance abuse and mental health issues. Subsequent meetings of the expert panel resulted in a recommendation for the development of a guidance document to include: purposes of E-therapy, specialty populations, evaluation, appropriate settings for service delivery, licensure, and administrative concerns.
Taken together, the invaluable contributions of these experts have resulted in the information provided within this document, and will likely shape efforts to provide quality substance abuse treatment services for years to come.
