Online Ethics Course Available

CCAPP is Pleased to Present Our Online Ethics Course

CCAPP’s Standard of Care learning workshop examines client behaviors and characteristics, presenting issues and configurations in treatment, as well as the personal issues and vulnerabilities of treatment professionals, which combine to increase the probability of legal and ethical violations. These all affect the standard of care to which the professional is held. This workshop is presented by Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Ronald Mah, and runs approximately 4 hours in length. 

This course meets the ethics requirements of the California Consortium or Addiction Programs and Professionals.

CCAPP Gets Down to Business

CCAPP Chief Executive Officer, Pete Nielsen, has made uniting and raising the visibility of AOD programs a priority for his first year of leadership at CCAPP. To achieve this, he has embarked on an ambitious strategy that begins with outreach. “I thought it was of utmost necessity to take CCAPP to the programs we represent,” said Nielsen. “I want an accurate pulse of what the concerns are, and more importantly what are the concrete action items we can take as an association to meet the needs of the changing business environment facing all treatment modalities in California.” Thus far there have been roundtables in Sacramento, San Francisco, and in Burbank, at the CCAPP Annual Conference. Additional meetings are being scheduled for San Jose, Chico, and Anaheim. CCAPP will continue these activities in conjunction with regional events as they roll out this quarter and next. “We are listening, but at the same time, we are strategizing to set an extremely proactive agenda for 2016,” said Nielsen. “These meetings aren’t just about being ‘heard,’ they are about affecting real, measurable change in California.” Some themes are coalescing as CCAPP moves through the roundtables. Issues concerning ASAM designations, provider applications, staffing challenges, audit requirements, and reimbursement streams are frequently voiced by participants. Practical concerns, such as tobacco cessation programs and cell phone use in treatment programs have also been discussed. While CCAPP performs outreach, it is already moving forward on the first concern of participants- improving the visibility of the association with the Department of Health Care Services. CEO Nielsen met face-to-face with DHCS Director Jennifer Kent last week to begin dialogue of a myriad of issues that face treatment programs in California. “It was a productive meeting,” said Nielsen. “We demonstrated that CCAPP can partner with the Department in ways that are conducive to expanding treatment, reducing administrative burdens, and serving as reliable input for high level decision making.”
