There is a confluence of national and local public policy developments regarding mental health, substance use disorders, and treatment. The federal government, working in partnership with states, addresses behavioral health issues and establishes and enforces minimum standards. States, however, have significant power in making decisions—mental health regulations and available services can look very different from state to state, and even from county to county.

This was part of a partnership between Behavioral Health Association of Providers, Epstein Becker Green, and Nelson Hardiman: offering a winter / spring webinar series that addressed topics highlighting the accelerating legal and policy issues for the behavioral health industry.


Patient brokering, the practice of recruiting people in need of treatment for substance use disorders in exchange for kickbacks, has been a troubling practice in California, leading to concerns of patient endangerment and fraud.

This webinar examines the implications of SB1228 and its impending changes to the rules governing marketing practices in residential and outpatient treatment, as well as sober living recovery residences. Also addressed will be problematic current practices and the future of compliant marketing relationships.
