IHR's On-PAR Online Training

IHR’s On-PAR Online Training can assist behavioral health programs and service providers to treat tobacco/nicotine dependence on par with other substance use disorders.


IHR’s On-PAR Online Training addresses specific practice/treatment barriers and challenges to integration and implementation of tobacco treatment in behavioral health settings. It consists of four lessons that provide strategies for integrating tobacco education and treatment into behavioral health services:


LESSON 1: Reviews the rationale for addressing tobacco dependence within the behavioral health community. This lesson offers cessation treatment information and examines the process of tobacco/nicotine dependence recovery.


LESSON 2: Reviews the biological, psychological and social factors that influence why people start using tobacco, continue to use tobacco and have difficulty quitting.


LESSON 3: Reviews the process of change and the Stages of Change model in tobacco dependence treatment.


LESSON 4: Reviews motivational interviewing strategies to facilitate change in the treatment of tobacco dependence.


This is a self-paced training that does not need to be completed in one session. Each lesson should take 35-45 minutes to complete and is followed by a brief quiz. For those that complete all four lessons, complete each quiz earning a score of 80% or higher, a total of 2.5 CE credits for LCSW/LICSW or 2.75 CE credits for LADC and LMHC or a certification of completion will be awarded free-of-charge.
