The Illinois Department of Human Services/Division of Substance Use Prevention and Recovery (IDHS/SUPR) invites you to participate in several IDHS/SUPR sponsored trainings scheduled during the first (1st) quarter of fiscal year 2023. The training is offered to support compliance with Administrative Rule 2060, staff development, and encourage the use of best practices in substance use disorder treatment. Some trainings focus on:
- Harm Reduction
- Tele behavioral Best Practices
Please review two handouts (FY23 1st Quarter IDHS-SUPR Training Calendar and FY23 IDHS-SUPR FY23 Recovery Support Trainings) for a list of all trainings sponsored by IDHS/SUPR that are scheduled between August through September 2022.
IDHS/SUPR encourages your organization to review the calendar as it includes descriptions, dates and times for each training, and registration information. Please note that Prevention First is coordinating the trainings. You will also find the handout "IDHS-SUPR Training Registration Instructions" with instructions about how to register for the trainings.
IDHS/SUPR strongly encourages authorized organization representatives (AORs) to share the Smart Alert and handouts with staff providing clinical and recovery support services and support their participation in these important trainings.
Registration will remain open until all training slots are full. IDHS/SUPR cannot expand the number of slots available for these trainings. Therefore, early registration is highly encouraged.
The trainings are free and CEUs will be offered for Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselors (CADCs), social workers and licensed clinical professional counselors.
As a reminder, IDHS/SUPR-funded organizations can bill for participation in these trainings. Staff time spent in an IDHS/SUPR sponsored training can be billed to Community Intervention using activity code 35.
