Summary The main objective of this Treatment Improvement Protocol (TIP) is to improve care for clients with substance abuse disorders (SUDs) by increasing knowledge of viral hepatitis among staff in behavioral health programs that provide substance abuse treatment. Some surveys have shown that substance abuse treatment providers are not well informed about viral hepatitis. Clients often perceive that counselors do not have the information they need. With up-to-date information, counselors, health professionals, and administrators in SUD treatment settings can encourage clients to understand the serious nature of hepatitis, risk factors, the importance of liver wellness, screening, treatment options, and ways to avoid spreading--or contracting--hepatitis. Other behavioral health treatment providers (e.g., counselors in mental health treatment settings, nurses, mid-level providers) will also find useful information in this TIP. Information is provided in lay terms so that it can be understood by readers who do not have medical training.
Funding This publication was prepared for the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) by the Knowledge Application Program (KAP), a Joint Venture of The CDM Group, Inc., and JBS International, Inc., under contract numbers 270-04-7049 and 270-09-0307, with SAMHSA, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
