NatCon ’16 Making Addiction Treatment Less of a Gamble

SMART-at-NatCon-16-768x512March 15, 2016 – The National Council for Behavioral Health (NatCon) Conference, Las Vegas wrapped up this past week.

What we gathered from participants is that there are many facilities with a new or renewed focus on opiate addiction treatment. Many visitors to our booth were currently opioid treatment providers and many more expressed desire or active plans to implement an OTP (opioid treatment program) soon.

The addiction epidemic has not yet shown signs of slowing, so it only makes sense that more behavioral healthcare providers would begin to expand their services to accommodate this growing population. NatCon catered to these attendees with a variety of educational sessions, talks, films, and literature geared toward addiction and more specifically, opioid addiction treatment.

As an EHR vendor who has also been an addiction treatment provider, we know the importance of events that bring together so many impactful and caring professionals. Thank you to everyone who spent time at our booth, getting to know our team and OTP software solution.

SMART would also like to congratulate, Armando Moreno, Program Director of Cope Behavioral Health of Tuscon, AZ, the winner of SMART’s Natcon ’16 Fitbit giveaway. COPE is a private, nonprofit healthcare organization to foster better mental and physical healthcare through their integrated mind, body, and spirit approach.

We look forward to further cultivating our relationships with everyone at National Council ’17 in Seattle!
