Community Outreach and Education
Community Medical Services, as an honored guest in our communities, can provide customized education or in-services to your team. In the communities we serve, and in the communities we are new too, we believe whole-heartedly that education and community outreach are key to best serving our patient demographic and to healing our communities. With these educational presentations, based on scientific research and on open dialogue, we work to better understand the needs and concerns of our system partners along with deterring the negative stigmas and biases sometimes placed upon our patients participating in substance use disorder treatment. As a member of the community we are dedicated to provide education and support to the community in any capacity that would help.
We provide consistent in-services to:
- Child and Family Services
- Department of Child Safety
- Hospital Staff
- Drug Courts
- Family Court Programs
- Judges and Attorneys
- Correctional Health Services
- Probation and Parole Departments
- Behavioral Health Agencies
- Mental Health Providers

If you do not see yourself listed, please feel free to contact Michael.White@addictiontx.net and we can develop a presentation for your team.
We have several National Speakers on staff specializing in Pregnancy and Best Practices, Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome, MAT 101, MAT Collaborative Program Development, MAT and Drug Court, along with utilizing Collective Impact Models for MAT Teams. If it would be helpful or appropriate to have a speaker from our staff present at a conference or provide a presentation to your team, please do not hesitate and we will make every attempt to honor your request.
