Understanding and Embracing the Evolving Substance Use Service System in the Granite State

Change seems to be the only thing that is constant for the field these days. While change signals evolution and progress, it also requires adaptability and rapid learning. New Hampshire's substance use disorder field is undergoing rapid evolution. Medicaid Managed Care is evolving once again to accommodate a third MCO and substantial changes to current MCO contracts. Payment methods for services are increasingly being tied to performance and outcomes, and the state is transforming its delivery of behavioral health services through Doorways, Hubs, and Integrated Delivery Networks. In addition to service delivery changes, attitudes around syringe exchange programs and marijuana use and access are evolving as well. Providers across the continuum need to remain informed and ready to respond to these changes and fully understand the impacts they have on the prevention and treatment of substance use disorder. This mixed model training, facilitated by Abby Shockley, will provide participants with a lay of the land for prevention, treatment and recovery services in New Hampshire followed by an interactive discussion with key stakeholders around managed care and payment transformation, emerging trends in the continuum of care, and opportunities to leverage ever-increasing resources to address substance use.
