The Virtual Learning Series on Substance Abuse is a part of the Iowa Department of Public Health’s Division of Behavioral Health Initiatives that support prevention, treatment and recovery from substance use disorders and problem gambling.

This virtual learning will focus on person centered planning for individuals with substance use disorders and co-occurring conditions, specifically addressing brain injury, intimate partner violence, opioid use disorder and problem gambling.

This presentation will explore the continuum of care as defined by the Institutes of Medicine and explore the opportunities for all working within the continuum to benefit from the combined efforts along the SUD services path. The scope of prevention, treatment, recovery, and harm reduction will be explored in an effort to identify key points where working together is stronger than the sum of the parts.


  • Describe the components of SUD continuum, and the distinctive roles within the continuum.
  • Describe the intricacies of the roles throughout the continuum.
  • List strategies for working smarter and being more effective by braiding roles throughout the full continuum of care.
