(EMAILWIRE.COM, July 24, 2016 ) Boston, MA -- As reported by CBS Boston, the University of Massachusetts has acquired $900,000 in grants for their nursing students for the express purpose of addressing the mounting substance abuse and mental health issues affecting the state and the country. The SBIRT program funded by these grants stands for Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment and will be introduced into existing community nursing programs including psychiatric and pediatric care.
The intended purpose is to assist people currently
Such an educational program at the University of Massachusetts benefits facilities providing Drug rehab in Boston and across the state. One major problem facing the addiction recovery industry is a lack of medical professionals trained to treat the unique physical and mental health challenges facing people with substance abuse disorders. Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston, a leader in the addiction recovery community of Massachusetts, fully supports this initiative for improving public health throughout the state.
A representative of Drug and Alcohol Rehab Boston comments:
"Funding for programs like SBIRT are vital to protecting the health and safety of our communities. People living with substance abuse disorders face unique challenges to their physical and mental health which need to be addressed, and because proper training is not available through most educational institutions, that has been lacking. The vast majority of medical students do not even consider the addiction recovery field as a plausible career choice due to a lack of education and misinformation even within the medical field. Through encouraging programs like this one, we can begin to bridge the gap between supply and demand in terms of addiction recovery."
