Training Events

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Evidence-based behavioral approaches help engage people in drug abuse treatment, provide incentives for them to remain abstinent, modify their attitudes and behaviors related to drug abuse, and increase their life skills to handle stressful circumstances and environmental cues that may trigger intense craving for drugs and prompt another cycle of compulsive abuse.  See below for the evidence-based practices accepted for Drug Medi-Cal (DMC) participation.
