The OWDTT collaborates with stakeholders, federal and state agencies, including but not limited to SAMHSA, On Our Own of Maryland, Department of Veterans Affairs, Maryland Coalition of Families and the Mental Health Association of Maryland. These collaborations lead to multiple opportunities to disseminate and promote core competencies for our professional workforces, including behavioral health clinicians, primary care providers, social workers, drug and alcohol counselors, prevention specialists, and peer recovery support providers.
OWDTT partners with numerous organizations including the University of Maryland’s Evidence-Based Practice Center and the University of Maryland’s Training Center on the development and execution of evidence-based trainings. The Office also partners with higher education providers, advisory boards responsible for behavioral health curriculum development and promoting professional development opportunities, and with licensing and certification boards to ensure that continuing education opportunities are ample, accessible, and meet the various criteria required.
