Share |




When: Thursday, August 10, 2017 at 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM

Where:  Online Event

Presenter:  Pete Nielsen, Chief Executive Officer, California Consortium of Addiction Programs and Professionals (CCAPP)


This webinar is a great opportunity for managers, directors, administrators, and C-Suite professionals to learn more about the powerful impact of C-CARA on major issues in our industry, including patient brokering, payment reform, capacity, and workforce.


Learn about C-CARA’s mission to create the nation’s first “on demand” addiction treatment system by guaranteeing access to treatment when the individual presents a need, and by eradicating waiting lists where Californians die while waiting for treatment. C-CARA’s mission will be accomplished through legislative action on a set of legislative bills to address each of the four areas identified as cornerstones of a comprehensive “treatment on demand” system for California.


The webinar’s objectives are to help administrators and counselors:


  1. Understand the changing political environment and how these changes could impact them as well as the clients they serve.
  2. Recognize the legal and ethical issues with patient brokering.
