This two-year initiative is funded by SAMHSA, the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. NJAFP and NJSAM have developed a comprehensive, standardized substance use disorder curriculum to be implemented in at least 20 family medicine residency program sites.

Participating family medicine programs will commit to implementing all or parts of the curriculum to supplement existing programming. NJAFP and NJSAM will produce slide presentations plus live and online, on-demand programming to support the curriculum. We will provide a smart-phone based screening tool, which will be a great tool for busy primary care practices. The screening tool is designed to track utilization and helps practices monitor scores overall.

Feel free to review the curriculum:
