Practice Transformation

The Florida AHEC Network provides education and technical support to behavioral health and primary care sites across the state of Florida through practice transformation activities designed to:

  • Build capacity among health care providers to systematically address patients' opioid misuse

  • Disseminate opioid systems change strategies, tools, and resources

  • Encourage the integration of behavioral health services in primary care and other care settings to assist patients with behavioral and lifestyle changes

  • Sustain opioid risk reduction efforts

Our practice transformation centers on three steps, or tiers:

  1. Appropriate screening, evaluation, and prevention

  2. Safer opioid prescribing and chronic pain management

  3. Office-Based Opioid Treatment (OBOT)
