Substance Abuse Training Initiative (SATI)
July 2006-September 2008
Tthe Substance Abuse Training Initiative (SATI) in the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s College of Public Affairs and Community Service was established in 2006 to promote education and training of substance abuse and mental health professionals, SATI is committed to providing innovative, practical and high quality training programs and resources for treatment professionals and criminal justice professionals who work with substance abusers. Its purpose is to facilitate the implementation of evidence based practices in these fields.
SATI is committed to helping agencies and organizations develop the infrastructure necessary to implement evidence-based practices. Through technical assistance and support, SATI helps treatment providers make the process changes necessary to support and administer evidence-based practices. Technical support includes refinement of assessment and documentation practices, conceptualization and improvement of referral and reimbursement streams, and maximization of the interaction between public policy and provision of services. SATI is working to identify ways in which technology can be leveraged to improve the provision of treatment services.
