July 21, 2021

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office of Regional Operations invites you to a free webinar: Part 4 of the Telebehavioral Health Webinar Series.


Telehealth is especially important in rural areas for engaging and sustaining patients in substance use disorder (SUD) treatment and recovery support services. In particular, accessing services that address social determinants of health and engaging in peer coaching via telehealth can be invaluable to patients’ success in SUD treatment and recovery.
