The BHAP SUD Treatment Provider Boot Camp is a unique opportunity for anyone thinking of opening an SUD treatment program or anyone operating an SUD treatment program that wants to improve the enterprise.

With tremendous changes in the behavioral health industry, there will continue to be opportunities to provide desperately needed treatment services to those suffering from substance use disorders, but the business models are changing rapidly. The traditional treatment models are finding it more difficult to survive as insurance payors and government payors repeatedly modify their reimbursement programs. Attracting patients has become more difficult as increased regulations have been imposed on marketing and compensation practices.

The professionals and attorneys at BHAP, Nelson Hardiman, and Epstein Becker Green have carefully designed the curriculum of this Boot Camp to address these growing concerns in this workshop webinar series.

This Boot Camp is designed specifically to address the strategic, regulatory, operational, and marketing concerns associated with operating a substance use disorder treatment program in an ethical and prudent manner.
