Whole-Person Care Coordination of Services Across Sectors Target Population Patient-Centered Care Collaborative Leadership Shared Data Financial Flexibility The West Virginia Department of Health & Human Resources (Department), Bureau for Behavioral Health (BBH) and the Bureau for Medical Services are leading the way to advance the Certified Community Behavioral Health Centers (CCBHCs) Model in WV. BBH is partnering with Quality Insights to provide technical assistance and guide West Virginia’s 13 participating Comprehensive Behavioral Health Centers and other behavioral health care providers towards CCBHC certification, transforming their practice workflows, and encouraging integrated, coordinated care.

The wide range of services Quality Insights is providing include leveraging the expertise of Bowling Business Strategies (BBS) to share effective strategies and resources that have led other states on successful journeys toward certification.

A Certified Community Behavioral Health Clinic (CCBHC) is a specially-designated clinic that provides a comprehensive range of mental health and substance use services. CCBHCs provide a comprehensive array of services needed to create access, stabilize people in crisis, and provide the necessary treatment for those with the most serious, complex mental illnesses and substance use disorders. CCBHCs integrate additional services to ensure an approach to health care that emphasizes recovery, wellness, trauma-informed care, and physical behavioral health integration. These services include, but are not limited to:

  • Provision of 24/7/365 crisis care
  • On-site care coordination
  • Integrated health care
  • Tailored care for active-duty military and veterans

Opioid Use Disorder in Rural America
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Overdose deaths have increased in both urban and rural counties, but rural communities continue to be disproportionately impacted. Approximately half of rural counties do not have a provider waivered to prescribe buprenorphine and there is extremely limited access to harm reduction services in rural communities. 

Join us on Thursday, September 8, 3-4 p.m. ET for a webinar exploring why rural areas have been so severely impacted by the overdose epidemic. We will discuss unique challenges, as well as opportunities to make demonstrable improvements engaging rural patients with opioid use disorder.

By attending this webinar, you will:

  1. Define rurality and the impact of the overdose epidemic on rural communities.
  2. Describe how the social determinants of health in rural areas increases the risk of drug use and overdose death.
  3. Understand barriers to delivering evidence-based prevention and treatment services for individuals with opioid use disorder in rural areas.
  4. Discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated overdose deaths and created new opportunities for service delivery in rural areas.

CoE-IHS Office Hour: Integrated Care Strategies to Reduce Barriers to Substance Use Treatment among Communities of Color
2:00 pm - 3:00pm

The current opioid epidemic persists as one of the largest drug-related epidemics to date in the United States. While the crisis crosses all racial and ethnic groups, the rates of opioid use and opioid-related overdose continues to increase more rapidly among communities of color.

Historic marginalization and other contributing factors related to social determinants of health among racial and ethnic minorities continue to exacerbate the risk of developing substance use challenges throughout an individual's lifetime. Living with substance use challenges presents obstacles for anyone, but people of color continue to face additional barriers to equitable and culturally responsive care that can significantly affect their overall wellbeing and recovery journey.

In honor of National Recovery Month, join us on Tuesday, September 13, 2-3 p.m. ET for Integrated Care Strategies to Reduce Barriers to Substance Use Treatment among Communities of Color, a conversation with health equity experts and experts with lived experience who will discuss integrated care services and advancing health equity for people of color with substance use challenges.

Providing integrated care services can reduce barriers to accessing substance use treatment services and further advance health equity and recovery outcomes among communities of color.

Wellbeing Wednesdays, Episode 8 — Alcohol Use Disorder: Our Nation’s Hidden Epidemic
2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Recovery Month provides an opportunity to discuss our nation’s hidden epidemic — alcohol use disorder (AUD). Deaths involving AUD increased dramatically during the pandemic, according to a study by Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The study also found that young adults 25 to 44 years old experienced the steepest upward trend in AUD mortality. In a separate study, researchers at Washington University in St. Louis found that problem drinking led to more than 232 million missed work days a year in the U.S. before the pandemic, and the situation likely became worse with more people working at home. Dr. George F. Koob, Director of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism, will join us for a discussion on AUD and the impact of AUD on people and families.

Join us for the eighth episode in our Wellbeing Wednesday virtual learning series on September 28, where the best minds in health care share their thoughts on topical issues:

  • George F. Koob, PhD, Director, National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA)
  • Chuck Ingoglia, President and CEO of the National Council for Mental Wellbeing
