Lead instructor must be licensed in the substance use / mental health profession with training/experience in substance use. Co-instructors do not need to be licensed mental health professionals, but it is preferred.
Each individual class size is limited to 25 participants. This allows for quality group interactions, challenge and individualized feedback and guidance from instructor(s).
Lead instructor must demonstrate experience and background in Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.

With the drug and alcohol epidemic at an all time high, we have an opportunity to change. American culture is alcohol and drug driven. We lack skills to cope with life stressors and truama. We have many, many people caught up in in the “social culture” who experience a legal consequence, university sanction, or even employer mandate. As mental health and addiction professionals it is time we ©Get Smart! We need to educate people about the importance of using interactive education rather than simply information sharing, which research shows does not lead to treatment effectiveness. We need to treat people with respect, and help them feel empowered rather than “criminalized” just because they are going through legal or mandated consequences. People experience shame and stigma because of our system. It’s time to do something different.

There are 3 tiers of the ©Get S-M-A-R-T Curriculum – the 8-hour, 12-hour, and 20-hour classes. Each class builds on each other, with increasing degrees of intensity, respectively. The chart on the left illustrates how these courses build upon each other, with the 8-hour course being the foundation of the curriculum. At Calla Collaborative Health, we want our ©Get S-M-A-R-T instructors to feel supported, which is why in Fall 2020, we are launching the online Calla Crew Membership, available to all membership users of the curricula, to access additional resources for your classroom, training, and online correspondence and webinars with Lisa and her team.
