Abstract

Addiction or Substance Use Disorders (SUD) is a growing public health problem in India. There are very few trained health professionals to provide evidence based care for these conditions. We initiated a weekly tele-ECHO clinic to train health professionals in the recognition and management of Alcohol and tobacco use disorders. The preliminary results points towards the feasibility as well as acceptability of the ECHO model of training in addiction mental health. There is a need for more involvement of the health care providers in future NIMHANS ECHO Programs.
