The major strategies include motivational interviewing and cognitive behavioral therapy for the brief encounters, and sequenced assessments that precede referrals for needed addiction treatment. The program has been implemented in 10 sites across New Mexico via 10 Behavioral Health Consultants hired and supervised by SDCCHP.
