Substance Use Disorder (SUD) costs the United States approximately $416 billion per year in crime, lost work productivity, medical care and other social problems. In one study, the most common primary SUD problem among veteran admissions was alcohol (65.4%), followed by heroin (10.7%) and cocaine (6.2%) (SAMSHA, 2015). SUD treatment and aftercare requires case management which is frequently provided through the provision of social work case management services. This webinar will educate the participant about social work case management, benefits, most desirable treatment outcomes and associated challenges.
