Solutions Recovery will serve as a practicum site for Las Vegas medical students in a new partnership with Touro University of Nevada. The practicum is the first offered at the treatment center and will pave the way for future educational partnerships in the Las Vegas community.
“We have been continuously elevating the medical and clinical treatment that we provide for the chronic brain disease of addiction,” said David Marlon, CEO of Solutions Recovery. “Partnering with health professionals, particularly in the university teaching community, is critical to our commitment to treating chemical dependency at the highest level.”
The 45-hour rotation, specializing in mental health experience, is required by the university for those studying in the medical field. The practicum will pair nurse practitioners and physician assistant students with the expert medical team at the treatment facility for clinical rotations. Facility experts working with the students include:
- Dr. Robert Lynn Horne, Chief Psychiatrist
- Joan McCraw, MSN, FNP, APRN, Clinical Specialist in Psychiatry/Addictions
“Touro University Nevada is excited to partner with Solutions Recovery for nurse practitioner and physician assistant student clinical rotations,” said Patricia Strobehn, MSN, APRN FNP -BC, FNP program coordinator at Touro University. “Solutions’ treatment programs for addiction and recovery patients provides important care for Southern Nevadans. We are positive that this partnership will equip our graduates with great experience to take with them when they are providing healthcare in our community in the future.”
Course of study during the practicum will include a history of Solutions Recovery drug and alcohol treatment center, substance abuse treatment and co-occurring disorders, treatment services offered, and more.
