18 September 2018 San Diego, CA. Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI) is pleased to announce its strategic partnership with NAADAC, the Association for Addiction Professionals, to bring telemental and telebehavioral addiction treatment. With this strategic partnership, NAADAC members will be able to access discounted telebehavioral health education and resources through the Telebehavioral Health Institute (TBHI), an institute devoted to training and consultation with professionals seeking to develop the legal, ethical, and clinical competencies related to working with technology in behavioral health.

Dr. Marlene Maheu, a pioneer in the field of telebehavioral health and the founder of TBHI, said, “We are delighted to be bringing telemental and telebehavioral health to NAADAC.” Dr. Maheu also expressed her enthusiasm for NAADAC by noting that “NAADAC is the leading professional association for addiction counselors and other addiction professionals. It espouses our values of interprofessional teamwork by welcoming professionals from all behavioral disciplines to work together toward shared addiction interventions. NAADAC’s visionary leadership also supports the pivotal role that telehealth can provide in reaching the many millions of people who receive little or no addictions treatment. NAADAC’s leadership has taken a strong stand that professionals need to have training in telebehavioral health competencies prior to delivering care through technology. To this end, they are working closely with TBHI to deliver a variety of training options for NAADAC members.” For starters, NAADAC will be making TBHI professional online training available to its members at a 20 percent discount.

Cynthia Moreno Tuohy, BSW, NCAC II, CDC III, SAP, Executive Director of NAADAC, said “NAADAC is very excited to be working with TBHI to bring telehealth training and certification to NAADAC members at a discount and help our members and their programs expand into telehealth in an informed, ethical way. We believe telehealth shows a lot of promise for providing services that cover addiction prevention, treatment, and recovery for rural and underserved areas and will become increasingly important as we deal with future addiction workforce shortages. Dr. Maheu has incredible influence, passion, leadership, and knowledge about telebehavioral health, and we trust that she and TBHI can provide our members with best practices to expand into telehealth and better serve their clients.”
